 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__notw__(<​number>​ <word list>)
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +   * If the <​number>​ argument is omitted the empty string is returned.
 +   * If the <​number>​ argument is negative, <word list> is returned.
 +   * The return value of this function is <word list> with the <​number>​th word omitted, counting from zero.
 +   * Extra spaces surrounding the <​number>​th word will be removed.
 +   * Remember that <word list> is a list of [[what is a word|words]].
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +Useful when you want to remove a word from a word list.
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +The <word list> argument without the <​number>​th word, counting from zero.
 +
 +======Examples:​======

 +$notw(0 hello there how are you?)       ​returns "there how are you?"
 +$notw(2 hello there how are you?)       ​returns "hello there are you?"
 +$notw(-1 hello there how are you?)      returns "hello there how are you?"
 +</​file>​
 +
 +======History:​======
