is among the words AND find words

An alternative approach:

Assuming that the phrase "now is the time, for all good men" is in fld 1,
then this button script....

on mouseUp
  put findWord(fld 1,"time")
end mouseUp

function findWord pContent,pStr
  if pStr is among the tokens of pContent then
    return num of words of char 1 to offset(pStr,pContent) of pContent
  else return 0
end findWord

reurns 4 as expected. Similarly for 'time-bomb' and other variants.
