  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  lexeme 
 
    A  minimal  lexical  unit  of  a  language.  {Lexical 
  analysis}  converts  strings  in  a  language  into  a  list  of 
  lexemes.  For  a  programming  language  these  word-like  pieces 
  would  include  {keywords},  {identifiers},  {literal}s  and 
  punctutation.  The  lexemes  are  then  passed  to  the  {parser}  for 
  syntactic  analysis.
