One idea:

Store the list of words as a set of items on a single line for each 


then you can store the data in a single field or custom property.  Now 
to find the group, something like this might work:

repeat for each line x in field "My Hidden Field"
   if myClickedWord is among the items of x then
   end if
end repeat
