<C-left> followed by
<C-S-right> which are
right-word respectively, although the shift key is held for the latter. (I do not fully understand the relationship between keyboard designations with the shift key and their mapping to functions, the help for
<C-S-right> translates it to
<C-right> before it identifies it as
