A graph G = (V,E) is representable if there exists a word W over the alphabet V such that letters x and y alternate in W if and only if (x,y) ∈ E for each x ≠ y. Such a W is called a word-representant of G. Note that in this paper we use the term graph to mean a finite, simple graph, even though the definition of representable is applicable to more general graphs.
