I think it's fine as-is.  The real purpose of the example is show basic patterns in writing regexes.  Pig-latin examples or searching for words ending in -ly make for nice beginner examples.   I like the OP's modification because it teaches a general skill (the importance of \b for making sure you get whole words).

We could add a link to the Natural Language Toolkit for people who are getting serious about searching for parts of speech.
