That was when I was using a pre-processor. In the default mode, my
current parser outputs the following for the first one:

text
zoiClause
|- ZOI: zoi
|- anyWordZoi: zoi
|- zoiPrintableWord: I'm
|- zoiWords
|- zoiPrintableWord: talking
|- zoiWords
|- zoiPrintableWord: about
|- zoiWords
|- zoiPrintableWord: quotes
|- anyWordZoi: zoi
