The constructs that pertain to words and syntax are controlled by the
setting of the syntax table (@pxref{Syntax}).
Here is a complicated regexp, stored in @code{sentence-end} and used
by Emacs to recognize the end of a sentence together with any
whitespace that follows. We show its Lisp syntax to distinguish the
spaces from the tab characters. In Lisp syntax, the string constant
begins and ends with a double-quote. @samp{\"} stands for a
double-quote as part of the regexp, @samp{\\} for a backslash as part
of the regexp, @samp{\t} for a tab, and @samp{\n} for a newline.

for a double-quote as part of the regexp, @samp{\\} for a backslash as

"[.?!][]\"')]*\\($\\| $\\|\t\\| \\)[ \t\n]*"
