You know the answer, only with statistical certainty and dependent on the length of the text and the distance of languages.

If same script lead to same delimiters can only be answered by someone knowing all 6000 languages of the world.

But already Arabic words should be a problem, maybe less if transcribed. Chinese even more.

see also Word_divider and Word#Word_boundaries

      Languages are live things, poetry is a valid form of a language.

      Processors are mechanicals things: no way to cover all the cases.

      Perl is digital and my brain is analogical.

      no hope, sorry

      there are no rules, there are no thumbs..
