What is a delimiter?

Hello, I am getting back to work on JS and I have forgotten something. What is a delimiter? The reason I am asking you is because other websites use terms which fly over my head. I need someone who can explain it in a more simple way.

Thank you for your help!

A delimiter is something that separates one thing from another in such a way that you know where it begins and ends. That is, it delimits the boundaries of something.

For example, a string is delimited by quotes, either single or double. An array is delimited by square braces on each end, an object by curlies.


Thank you! That is so much more clear than I was hoping for. I totally understand now.
