MEDZERA V ELEKTRONICKOM TEXTOVOM REŤAZCI A SLOVENSKÝ PRAVOPIS
Space in electronic text string and Slovak orthography
Languages of publication
Written or printed texts are results of content, formal and functional concatenation of various alphanumeric characters and special graphic symbols including a space. The space is an empty position in linear graphic concatenation which is not taken by a graphic symbol. It is the distance among discrete graphic characters of a text (clusters of graphemes). Contemporary Slovak spelling textbooks include only minimal rules for its usage. A mass production of texts on computers and their editing stimulate writer ś interest in a correct usage of the space and also their need to establish principles of this usage in everyday praxis, as they were stabilized in typography and bibliography. The aim of the paper is to summarize these principles, i.e. to define principles complexly, to formulate and illustrate them by selected examples from printed and electronic texts.
