All of the answers you have received are correct. I just wanted to add that your employer does NOT offer both a 401(k) and a Roth plan. Your employer offers ONE plan that has both 401(k) and Roth "features." It can also have a non-Roth after-tax "feature." The limit specified applies as well to the "individual" - so if you change employers mid-year, in total you still can't exceed the limit for the year.
