You can simply hold on a written word. than the word gets marked. now you can extend the mark by moving the dot at the beginning or the end of the word. after you selectet the text copy it by pressing the clipboard icon above the keyboard. This is possible in the message app, mail app and notes with your written text. in the message app you can copy a whole message you received by holding on the message (popup menu appears). in the brwoser you can't select text until now as i know
