Just like normal.  Catch the 'say' command in your spec-proc, call
do_say() so that it actually executes the say command, then check
the argument for what was passed.  If it's "destiny", then show the
message, and cast the spell.  The following, when wielding a weapon
with the "example_spec" spec proc set on it and fighting and saying
"fireball" will cast the fireball spell at level 12 on the opponent.
Written in mailer (but then again, how often do I post code that
isn't? :)).

  SPECIAL(example_spec) {
    struct obj_data *obj = (struct obj_data *) me;
    if (!obj->worn_by || obj->worn_on != WEAR_WIELD || !FIGHTING(ch) ||
        !CMD_IS("say") || !str_cmp(argument, "fireball"))
      return FALSE;

    do_say(ch, argument, 0, 0);
    act("$p hums powerfully in your hands!", FALSE, ch, obj, 0, TO_CHAR);
    act("$p hums powerfully in $n's hands!", FALSE, ch, obj, 0, TO_ROOM);
    call_magic(ch, FIGHTING(ch), NULL, SPELL_FIREBALL, 12, CAST_SPELL);
