I ran spell buffer on a tex file (in tex mode), and every single word
that ended in tex-style double quotes ('') was cited as possibly misspelled.
For example, the word ``enamel'' in double quotes got the message

enamel'' possibly misspelled

then it offered enamel's as an alternative.
also, a period followed by double quotes got the message

'' possibly misspelled.
