in reply to First word

I know that \w would be the regex for a 'word'

I suppose that depends on what you mean by a 'word'. \w is [A-Za-z0-9_], it includes numerics and the underscore. As noted, \b is a word boundary, although sometimes matches in unexpected places like apostrophies - "Clive's house" will appear to be 3 words.
