I would suggest You to try LaTeX.

It is very powerful word processing tool if You want to create a
printable document.

You can edit TeX files with Emacs.  And, of course, it provides much
more functionality than only cutting and pasting.
Actually block operations are not needed at all when editing TeX.

It is not needed too with TeX.  TeX does all necessary word-wrapping
and so it is sufficient to use, say, auto-fill-mode of Emacs when
typing in.

BTW, auctex is a great mode for editing TeX and it is on the list of
speech-enabled applications.
