this is just an evaluation order artifact - FIRST SYSTEM/WORDS isn't a living thing , it is just a "freezed copy". You can get a normal behaviour, if you try this: in rebol/words to-word "never-defined-this" ; == never-defined-this , while: in rebol/words first to-block "never-defined-this-2" ; == none Cheers -L
