Is there a single term which includes words and parts of words, e.g., the term could be applied to any of these:
- the word “international”
- the root “inter-” taken independently of the words it fits in
- any segmentable part of a word, e.g. “in”, “ter”, “na”, “tion”, “al”, which is in this case segmentation by syllable
The term could, but need not necessarily, include letters.
