You have 2 grammars, one for the lexer and one for the parser. Each grammar has
terminals (atoms) and nonterminals (symbols), where the nonterminals of the
lexer grammar are the terminals of the parser grammar.
AFAIK Token is commonly used for lexer symbols, and Production or
simply Symbol is used for parser symbols. John?
[I'd say that "production" is more often used to describe the entire rule,
not just the symbol, but the terminolgy isn't very consistent. -John]
