I think that it *might* not be to expensive to add a check whether the word exists in the ingored words list.
If it did, then add option unignore. That way...
what you see what you get
squiggled text a menu of ways to get rid of it
text, no squiggle a menu of ways to copy or format it.
if it is an ignorable world, provide way to unIgnore
Why do I think it might not be too hard? Because ignorable words doesn't seem like a big list to me, in most common cases. An exception or two might happen, but then, it's probably better to have your own custom dictionary added to the one in your language selection.
What about this?
