word() Ignore error when end = parameter is greater than the size of the string #112

Very useful package!

I'm trying to use the word() with Facebook posts text, to put then on a table. The problem is that I don't know how much words the string contain.
When I use the command:
fb_sent_comments_agg$post_text <- word(fb_sent_comments_agg$post_text, end = 5)

I receive the error:
Error in word[loc, "end"] : subscript out of bounds

Could be possible to do something when the string have less than 5 words? For example, end = works like:
if more than n words, cut the string after n, else don't cut the string.
