things on "a contents. However, the way I currently do it has a
disadvantage that the cursor moves and then it moves back and then the
screen flashes - all for nothing really. "ayaw or "ayiw doesn't work
for me because it changes cursor position. So, I want a simple way to
find the word at the current cursor position.
