non-graphical word prediction?

Hi list,

Does anyone know if there is any decent word-prediction utility for Linux? I know that GOK and Dasher both have built-in systems, and I'm sure those are quite good, but I just want one that works with the standard keyboard.

OpenOffice has this functionality to an extent, but it's generally limited to a list of a few hundred words that you have to generate yourself, and the words must be at least 5 characters long. The way it works in OOo is very nice though: you type along and it shows you a guess right on the page. With fewer characters entered, you might instead want a list like the one seen on GOK.

It would be nice to see this as a Gnome-layer so you could use it to enter text into any program, perhaps as a panel applet? Has anyone made anything like this? Compared with voice recognition or screen readers, this should be quite easy to make as most of the technology. Can GOK be extended to do this?
