To complete syntax words, you can use omnicompletion:

setlocal omnifunc=syntaxcomplete#Complete

And then CTRL-X CTRL-O to activate completion.

A more robust solution from :help ft-syntax-omni

if has("autocmd") && exists("+omnifunc")
  autocmd Filetype *
          \	if &omnifunc == "" |
          \		setlocal omnifunc=syntaxcomplete#Complete |
          \	endif

This version will avoid changing omnifunc if it's already set (presumably to something more comprehensive).
