jQuery: select <strong> inside this only

When you hover over a word, I want one word to be displayed under the word you hover over.

The problem with my code is that when you hover over a word, all additional words are shown below all words.

I only want  $("strong").fadeIn() to be applied to the item hovered over.

display: none;



<h1>Put your mouse over a word.  One bold word should fade in below that word only.</h1>

<p>Hello <strong>World</strong></p>
<p>Foo <strong>Zooph</strong></p>
<p>Apples <strong>Oranges</strong></p>

Your selector should be
$('p').mouseover(function() {
                    $("strong", this).fadeIn();

Meaning that you are querying the DOM structure inside a particular object, in this case this refers to the currently selected P tag that mouse is over.
