in isearch, when i use Ctrl-w to complete the search to the underlying word,

ig. in the text there is the quoted term 'Peter'. i place the cursor on the
P and press Ctrl-s Ctrl-w. then emacs searches for peter' (note the single
quote at the end!).

that's not what i want.obviously i want to search just for peter.

how can i tell that emacs?

This is just a guess: tell Emacs that ' is a punctuation character, not a

word constituent:

(modify-syntax-entry ?' ".   " text-mode-syntax-table)
