See:

• How To Reclaim Keybindings In Emacs
  http://xahlee.org/emacs/ergonomic_emacs_keybinding_minibuffer.html

• How to Define Keyboard Shortcuts in Emacs
  http://xahlee.org/emacs/keyboard_shortcuts.html

i'd recommend remap the keys so that

E R       I
D F     J K L

where the I J K L is cursor moving keys with Alt down. And
E R is deleting word left/right,
D F is deleting char left/right.

For the elisp code, see:
