Default My delete key deletes entire words...cannot delete letters

When I block letters in a word to delete, it deletes the entire word.
for example if I type "abcdog" and only want "dog" the entire word goes away
when I block to delete. Even if not using "blocl" the entire word goes away.
If I block an entire paragraph to delete it will only delete one word at a
time...not the entre paragraph I do not want.

On the Edit tab of Tools | Options, clear the check box for "When selecting,
automatically select entire word."
