      Forward and backward word searches are implemented by the
      commands `word-search-forward' and `word-search-backward'. These
      commands may be bound to keys in the usual manner. They are
      available via the incremental search commands both for
      historical reasons and to avoid the need to find separate key
      sequences for them.
