Here’s another useful AppleScript solution for people who, like me, use BBEdit or Mailsmith on a daily basis. This script gives you the ability to define a keyboard shortcut in BBEdit or Mailsmith for selecting the current word (i.e. the word where your cursor currently is).

John Gruber goes much further and gives you a whole tutorial about “whose” clauses in AppleScript.

You can just cut and paste the script and start using it, or you can learn about how it works and thus develop the skills necessary to write your own scripts.
