To my understanding, a word was delineated by whitespace or such as -
characters. Hence navigation on earlier versions of MCL was
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ using meta-F (alt-F)
Now that - is not seen as a word delineator meta-F will leap to the end.
Perhaps the convention changed somewhere along the way.
My fingers are used to:
c-F = forward one character
m-F = one word
c-m-F = one sexp
equivalent for backwards etc.
As no one else has commented, it's probably my brain reverting to
some earlier incarnation.
I'll have a dig in the sources ...
(just having access to the sources is such a joy and reassurance)
