AFAIK, it depends. If the preceding tokens are known a priory and do
not contain non-alphanumeric symbols, yes. Otherwise, no.

Yes but only if you know that `a` and `blah blah` are the only tokens
that will ever be in front of b.

No because * and & are not alphanumeric.

If this is your case, I can reply writing you the macros that can do this.
