should probably be: "a" & space & "b" -- yields "a b" put firstName & space & lastName into fullName

If you want to trim white space from the start and end of a string, whether or not it actually exists:
put " fred " into tTemp put word 1 to -1 of tTemp into tTemp put fred --> "fred"
However this will not trim a string which only contains whitespace, e.g.: " "

@rodney: Thanks for the tip!

word 1 to -1 of s

where

s

contains only spaces, does yield the empty string, at least in LiveCode 4.5.
@e.reicher: You are correct, the examples should have ampersands.
