I have no clue what a package is supposed to do but any solution has to 
come up with a list if words.


The {-}{}{\zwnj} is in fact a discretionary spec because you probably 
would like to permit hyphenation. You could inject just a \nzwj .

Btw, keep in mind that in context this kind of manipulations happens in 
ways that don't interfere too much with macro expansion and other trickery.
