We commonly create sub-groups of strings in one particular algorithm implementation. I just want to know in CS literature is there any standard name for such kind of grouping. For e.g.

Hello World! This is May from the dairy farm.

Strings with sub-groups of two:

Hello World!
World! This
This is
is May
