actually x contains the CONTENT of the line and not the number!

You could do this:

...
  put 1 into myLine
   repeat for each line x in field "WordList"
       if the mouseText is among the items of line myLine of field 
"WordList" then
         answer "HEY"
       end if
      add 1 to myLine
     end repeat
...

Hope that helps.
