If you use tags, then M-/ (dabbrev-expand) may just do what you want without 
anything new.

I don't know if the etags that is delivered with emacs supports Objective C, 
but Exuberant Ctags ( is very flexible. While it 
does not claim to support Objective C, it can be extended for new languages via 
regular expressions. I use something like the following to get support for a 
somewhat obscure language called Passport:

etags --langdef=pl --regex-pl="/procedure[[:blank:]]+([_[:alnum:]]+)/\1/"

Of course, shells have one feature that no other language has: subshells.
