    :!: Misspelling? I am not sure... *spoilers*

    Here you go (it's almost at the very end of the book):

    "Still looking out the window, Roland of Gilead - son of Steven and Gabrielle, she of Arten that was - smiled. It broke upon his face like the first glow of sunrise on a rocky landscape. He spoke a single world before going back to his gunna to build them an afternoon breakfast.
    The world was yes."

    What do you think about this one?
    You who have read the book know very well this part because it's absolutely unforgettable.

    Roland would have understood.

    The manuscript shows "world", while the second usage is "word". Unfixed typo.

    I noticed and I've decided to pretend it's not a typo. He spoke a single world.
