turning off spell check

I have sections of text that the spell checker trips on every time I spell check.

They contain such things as:

1. sentences in foreign languages. I don't want to add those words as legit in English text.

2. fragments of complete words that contain entities such as é or ’

3. sic -- precisely quoted idiocy from people whose spelling I want to ridicule.

I must waste an hour a day skipping over these damn things.

I would like some mechanism to turn the spell checker off for a span of text.

Some of the indicators I use for my own purposes are <span class="sic"> <span lang="de">

Perhaps you could turn off spell check for any text so marked. Perhaps something analogous to CSEIGNORE. Perhaps making CSEIGNORE turn off spell checking too.
