    When the items are words, n-grams may also be called shingles

    Does "shingles" here mean "word clustering"?


    --------------------
    In the fields of computational linguistics and probability, an n-gram is a contiguous sequence of n items from a given sequence of text or speech. The items can be phonemes, syllables, letters, words or base pairs according to the application. The n-grams typically are collected from a text or speech corpus. When the items are words, n-grams may also be called shingles.[1]

    I would say they are word clusters. Or phrases.
