You do know you can search the menu reference, right? (Although actually
when I looked at the menu description for Autocomplete in the reference, it
wasn't very helpful. I've updated it.)

As you start typing a word, various numbered choices appear at the bottom
of the script window. For example, if you type "c", the autocomplete bar at
the bottom shows "1. call  2. cancel  3. case  4. catch  5. choose  6.
clear  7. click  8. clone". As you type more characters, the choices narrow
down (typing "cl" gives you "1. clear  2. click  3. clone  4. close"). At
any point, you can press command-number or control-number to enter the word
with that number.
