"You can change the definition of a word in vim by using

:set iskeyword=<specification>

Remeber to change it back, though, when you have finished with the special usage.

:set iskeyword?

will show the current usage. My terminal responds with

iskeyword=@,48-57,_,192-255

for all the letters a-z and A-Z (@), digits 0 to 9 (ASCII 48-57), underscore and international letters (ASCII 192-255)"
