The documentation is not so clear about it, but a "word" should not contain whitespace, quotes (single or double), '/' path separators, ';' end statement or ' {', '}' brace brackets.

This has been the same for many versions of OpenFOAM, so you are lucky to have not have problems before. What might be different is your setting of the debug variable for 'word'. If it is zero, the words will not be checked on construction. With 1, they'll be checked and you'll get a warning. With 2 they'll be treated as a fatal error.

Thus for your above example (assuming you really want to use a quote inside the word), you really should be using a plain string not a word.
