Is there any way to reload my language specification without restarting gedit so that I can view the effect of my modification quickly and easily.

BTW you can put custom lang files in ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.

I would guess that adding your changed *,lang file to your home directory might cause a re-read when a new gedit document is opened especially if you use a command line "gedit newfile". I will try it right soon now.
