Thanks.
Seems I have difficulties with understanding.
What if docu would say:

"For example, if CHARACTER is a word constituent, `119' is returned."

or maybe still better

"For example, if CHARACTER is a word constituent, numeric value of character 
`w' is returned, which is 
`119' in Emacs internal representation."

BTW:

Can't Emacs have more internal representations of `w' with Unicode?
