Whenever you have a question about the grammar and rules etc. of Java there is one of the most important source of information : Java Language Specification.

Search for "keywords" in JLS and you will get everything you want to know about them: Keywords in Java

edit: Btw delete is not a keyword!

Nor is it reserved for future use. And it will never be, because that would break several methods in the existing API (File.delete() for instance). It's a keyword in C++ used for cleaning up objects, something that's not necessary in Java because of garbage collection.
