I believe it is understandable now. Personally, I'm not a fan of too
verbose description, but I might be biased because I understand what I'm
writing. Almost. Often.

No. I spent some hours in asking search engines for any hint what "word"
means in the HyperEstraier environment, no hit found. I've read also all
the Perl code in debbugs which does the HyperEstraier integration, no
hit either.

I haven't started to read the HyperEstraier source code itself, this
sounds too much to me.
