    Another special case of a word is a wildcard.

{ | | | + | <string> }
matches any string.
matches a single character.
matches any number.
+ matches any digit.

It is used to match a construct against sets of other words. The possibility of a wildcard specification is also indicated by enclosing syntactic constructs in <* *> angle brackets.
