Quotation marks in LaTeX have to be added with `` and '', but this results in the word being marked as misspelled in Texmaker, which uses Hunspell files (.dic and .aff). I tried adding `` and '' to the .dic file, but this resulted in all words marked as incorrect. How do I do it correctly?

Unfortunately, this isn't yet possible. I think it is time to report the issue.

What a pity. thanks! – Framester Mar 23 '12 at 15:10

There are many ways to add quotation marks. In my opinion the nicest solution is the csquotes package. The csquotes package basically provides the \enquote{} command that will give you correct quotes in (nearly) all cases and languages. Plus, the Texmaker spell check works with it, solving your issue as a side effect.
