I'm creating a formal system in which a sentence can be formed by four types of sequences of characters:
- Sequences in between words
What noun would you use to describe a sequence of characters between words?
I initially thought of "spaces" but that didn't seem appropriate as you could form sentences like cat->scratch, and -> is definitely not a space.
A friend of mine suggested "delimiters" but here -> doesn't delimit anything. Now we're both out of nouns.
