Words are distinguished by non-alphanumeric characters and need not be white space such as spaces and tabs.
A character is considered to be part of a word if it is in the $buffer-mask(5) character set. The default setting for $buffer-mask is "luh" which gives a word character set of the alphanumeric characters, i.e. 0-9, A-Z, a-z, this may be changed by setting the $buffer-mask variable. The character sets (including 4 user character sets 1-4) may be altered by using the command set-char-mask(2).
