It's easy to test. Put this in the message box in any version of Rev or 
MC, as early as you have versions for them:

get "However, this is an example."
put word 1 of it && last word of it

You should see:

    However, example.

I think Jim pointed it out because the OP was new to LiveCode and the 
behavior isn't intuitive. If you can still run HC, you can test it there 
too.
