the quotes *are* the delimiters of the function parameter, so they are
no ambiguous.

Well, then what about this:

string.lower "HELLO".."WORLD"

I reckon it is ambiguous, but still not much more than math.exp (3)*(4)

Personally, I was never used to the practice of putting a space before the parameters of a function, I do this only for keywords (if, while, for -- for languages using these parentheses, of course), and I routinely surround my operators with spaces.

So I would write:

string.lower"HELLO" .. "WORLD"
math.exp(3) * 4

which lowers the ambiguity.
