I think you could do it. The commands 'awk' and 'sed' and 'ifconfig'  
are words as much as 'gnu' and 'that' and 'free' are words,
if you take it that words are collections of letters strung together.  
The keyboard doesn't seem to do any spellchecking or textual analysis.
It seems to just look at what you've typed so far and comes up with a  
list of words that most closely match what you've typed so far.

You could use a different dictionary if you needed to, switching  
between them in different applications.
I admit I don't know much about Enlightenment, so I don't know where  
exactly this would all go or what would need to be edited/rebuilt
but it seems pretty simple conceptually.
A lot of the UNIX/Linux geeks I know make heavy use of tab  
completion, so word-completion wouldn't be too different I think.

Done. It works great :)
