5.9 Word

The word module provides the following strategies:


Match separate words within headwords.


Match the first word within headwords.


Match the last word within headwords.

The initialization procedure loads all three if given no arguments, as in

load-module word;

If arguments are given, the initialization procedure loads only those strategies that are listed in its command line. For example, the statement below loads only ‘first’ and ‘last’ strategies:

load-module word {
   command "word first last";

The following is an example of using one of those strategies in a dico session:
