For instance, the line "Then live with me and be my love" consists of four consecutive two-syllable words stressed on the second syllable (2.2): "Then live I with me I and be I my love." However, in the symmetric language model of dependence, the probability of such a line will not simply be the result of raising the language probability of the word-type 2.2 to the forth power.
Moreover, Pratt wrote, the deadline failure did not stem from "a reasonable reaction to an unanticipated hindrance." Rather, it was a result of the DHS search team's use of overbroad search terms, which included "all e-mail files" and "Word (or Word-type) documents opened/modified in the last year."

Linguists, lexicographers, information retrieval system designers, and others interested in the use of words often need to be careful to distinguish between word-tokens and word-types. In the previous sentence, for example, the single word-type "to" is instantiated by two word-tokens or occurrences, as is the word-type "and." Similarly, we should be careful to distinguish, in the current context, between utterance-tokens and utterance-types.
