One thing that might be of great help and could completely avoid the
learning process you mention, would be to take a look at the resource
file where BBEdit declares its apple events and applescript syntax,
what is gathered in the .scriptSuite and .scriptTerminology under
cocoa, I don't know really where it lies in a carbon app.
Could not find any info at BareBones for that...
