Is there a word that covers the meaning of both words and numbers?
Here is a sentence in English:
Historically, the year 1500 is also often identified, somewhat arbitrarily, as marking the end of the Middle Ages and beginning of the Early Modern Era.
Now, consider the same sentence is written using the language that uses small circles (●) instead of spaces, and I want to describe such a case. How would I say it?
To delimit [words?], these imaginary language uses small circles (●).
The word "words" in not really accurate because 1500 is actually a number.
