Is there any character that I can use as a mnemonic in strings and that Hunspell ignores?

Now:

E&xporteren

Hunspell sees the ampersand as a word boundary:

Is there any character (either visible or invisible) that I can use to define the location of the mnemonic, but that isn't considered as a word boundary by Hunspell?

Attributes (color, underline, italic, ...) are ignored by Hunspell but searchable by and visible to you.

Thanks, this is a nice suggestion. Alas, my CAT tool represents formatting with tags (that are handled as word boundaries by Hunspell).

In the meantime I've found a solution:

Okay, I found that I deserved a 2nd chance. Studied this:

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man4/hunspell.4.html

And came up with this:

WORDCHARS '’0123456789ij.-\/_
# Added underscore character for use in mnemonics

# Allow use of underscore for mnemonics
IGNORE _

2 additions of the underscore to nl_NL.aff

BTW: I also added:

# Set max. number of n-gram suggestions
MAXNGRAMSUGS 3

Because Hunspell often gave too many suggestions.

Not flagged as typos anymore
