Some context for the question would be welcome. For a start it's not even clear what is meant by keword. For what matlab considers to be a keyword, see Ekemini's answer.

Using the names of any of the functions in basic MATLAB is also not recommended. For example avoid using sum as the name of a variable.
A few days ago we saw someone use ones as the name of a variable, and then got confused over why their calls to the function ones were not working.

To obtain a list of all MATLAB keywords, use 'iskeyword' command and the results are shown below. 'break' 'case' 'catch' 'classdef' 'continue' 'else' 'elseif' 'end' 'for' 'function' 'global' 'if' 'otherwise' 'parfor' 'persistent' 'return' 'spmd' 'switch' 'try' 'while'

As Ekemini Stephen mentioned, use iskeyword()
{'break' }
{'case' }
{'catch' }
{'classdef' }
{'continue' }
{'else' }
{'elseif' }
{'end' }
{'for' }
{'function' }
{'global' }
{'if' }
{'otherwise' }
{'parfor' }
{'return' }
{'spmd' }
{'switch' }
