Dictionary question: changing word delimiters for french dictionary

Hi,

I am quite happy that I can use an old french-german dictionary on my kindle which I got years ago in non-drmed mobipocket format. However, there is a problem with a lot of words in french.

My kindle expects that different words are delimited by spaces whereas in french you often have the case that words are tied together with apostophes e.g. s'installer or l'arbre. Of course the dictionary lookup will not work here. If I could tech the dictionary lookup on my kindle to treat the apostrophe as another word delimiter, it should work fine.

Are you aware of any way that I could realize this? Is there some configuration file where you can specify word delimiters for dictionary lookups?

Thanks,

Jens
