I do not know rikaichan well, but following code snippet may be
meaningfull for you.

a) connect motion-notify-event signal to  textview

GtkWidget* text = ((MessageView*)msgview)->textview->text;
    g_signal_connect(G_OBJECT(text), "motion-notify-event",
			 G_CALLBACK(textview_motion_notify), msgview);

b) get mouse coords in textview_motion_notify.
					      event->x, event->y, &x, &y);
c) get GtkTextIter and retrieve text
  gtk_text_view_get_iter_at_location(GTK_TEXT_VIEW(widget), &iter, x, y);
d) popup text under mouse or anything you want.
