Hi Steven,

as a start: there's SampedSound>>playSilentlyUntil: to fast forward a 
sound. #resumePlaying will play the sound from there and #pause will 
stop playing after the word. There's more useful methods in sampledSound 
and AbstractSound. But you'll have to figure out how to get the time for 
the beginning of each word.
