A word boundary (\b) is defined as a spot between two
characters that has a \w on one side of it and a \W on the
other side of it (in either order), counting the imaginary
characters off the beginning and end of the string as
matching a \W.
And a couple of paragraphs above that:
\w Match a "word" character (alphanumeric plus "_")
\W Match a non-word character
this also means that the regex the way I wrote it would fail on a
hyphenated word. Since the hyphen is not considered a word character, a
hyphenated word is deemed to be two words.
