in thread Perl & Unicode: state of the art?
How many sentences are there in these examples?
- He said "I like pie. I also like tickles."
- He said "The pie cost me £2.30."
- I like pie
- Who watches the watchers?
Some will argue that something like "court martial" is a single word, despite having a space in.
And then there are all those pesky non-European languages. Apparently Chinese uses the same space between words as between characters.
So the answer is "probably not", in the general case.
