35.7 Some Standard Syntax Tables

Most of the major modes in Emacs have their own syntax tables. Here are several of them:

Function: standard-syntax-table
This function returns the standard syntax table, which is the syntax table used in Fundamental mode.

Variable: text-mode-syntax-table
The value of this variable is the syntax table used in Text mode.

Variable: c-mode-syntax-table
The value of this variable is the syntax table for C-mode buffers.

Variable: emacs-lisp-mode-syntax-table
The value of this variable is the syntax table used in Emacs Lisp mode by editing commands. (It has no effect on the Lisp read function.)
