token: identifier keyword literal operator punctuator
There are five kinds of tokens: identifiers, keywords, literals,19 operators, and other separators. Blanks, horizontal and vertical tabs, newlines, formfeeds, and comments (collectively, “white space”), as described below, are ignored except as they serve to separate tokens. [ Note: Some white space is required to separate otherwise adjacent identifiers, keywords, numeric literals, and alternative tokens containing alphabetic characters. — end note ]
Literals include strings and character and numeric literals.
