(defun aquamacs-kill-word (&optional beg end arg)
   "Kill characters forward until encountering the end of a word.
With argument, do this that many times."
   (interactive "rp")
   (if (and transient-mark-mode mark-active beg end)
       (kill-region beg end)
     (kill-region (point) (progn (forward-word arg) (point)))))

(defun aquamacs-backward-kill-word (&optional beg end arg)
   "Kill characters backward until encountering the beginning of a word.
With argument, do this that many times."
   (interactive "rp")
   (aquamacs-kill-word beg end (- (or arg 1))))
