Etymology[edit]

From Latin lexis, from Ancient Greek λέξις(léxis, word) + -eme a suffix indicating a fundamental unit in some aspect of linguistic structure. Extracted from phoneme, from Ancient Greek φώνημα(phṓnēma, sound), from φωνέω(phōnéō, to sound), from φωνή(phōnḗ, sound).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

lexeme ‎(plural lexemes)

  2. (computing) An individual instance of a continuous character sequence without spaces, used in lexical analysis (see token).
