Q for Regexperts

This may be a common need...

I want to parse text into a list of words.  What is particularly troublesome is the apostrophe:

	He said, "Don't ever say 'never' 'til you're sure."

The desired result is:

	He
	said
	Don't
	ever
	say
	never
	til
	you're
	sure

Is there any reason why the same regex won't work with European languages?  Do other languages have characters like the English apostrophe should be considered part of a word?

TIA,
D
