query-replace has a "words-only" mode if you use the C-u prefix.

Both searching and replacing automatically do case-matching if you use
any uppercase characters in the search string.  This is not sufficent
if you want to search/replace only _lowercase_ characters, and it
would be nice to have such an option, but I wonder if it could be
added without zillions of new commands?
