While the SCAN() function will allow
you to fetch the first word in string,
I think due to the unlimited possibilities
that "first word in a group of strings"
could mean, it probably would be better
to give us some samples of what the source
data might be and then a sample of what
your desired output might be. Otherwise,
there are too many variations to guess at.
Hope this is helpful.
