; Sentence : By default Emacs expects two spaces between sentences. If you prefer to use a single space try {{CustomizeVariable|sentence-end-double-space}}.
 
; Paragraph : By default Emacs expects a blank line between paragraphs.
 
; Page : In "*.el" files and other text files (for example the <tt>NEWS</tt> file, {{Keys|C-h n}}), text is divided into "pages" delimited by `^L' character. This character can be entered with {{Keys|C-q C-l}}

; sexp
 
: These are balanced expressions. For example, in [[C]] a block enclosed in a pair of '''{''','''}''' and in [[:Category:Lisp|Lisp]] a pair of '''(''', ''')'''.
 
; defun
 
: A Lisp function definition.
 
; subword : The use of <tt>CamelCaseIdentifiers</tt> is common in some programming languages. You can enable {{ModeLink|subword-mode}} to use the standard word-based commands such as {{Keys|M-f}} and {{Keys|M-b}} to navigate subwords delimited by capital letters.

The result of dtlcruteivesy modifying literal data like (A B C) is undefined. Don't do it.In most of the cases when you think you need to push something on the end of a list, you actually don't; PUSH+NREVERSE is often more suitable. When you really do need to push things on the end of a list, keeping a pointer to the tail of the list is handy.Counting instructions to see how you're doing is a little premature at this point.
