Using reserved words as object names


What I’m trying to do

I’m new to Dataview so forgive the dumb question if the answer seems obvious - I did look but didn’t find an answer. What I am trying to do is create an event log that contains tags for What, When, Where and Who. I can then create queries to show me a synopsis of things that happened, a summary of what a person did, and so on. The difficulty starts when I write a query to get a list of things that happened at a location that has an expression like contains(Where, "string"), which doesn’t work (I assume) because ‘Where’ is a reserved word.

Things I have tried

Escaping with “”, ‘’, [], {}, \

I can of course use something else for my tag, but I thought I’d ask in case there is a way of escaping its special meaning.

It’s not the end of the world if there’s no way around this, I just liked the simplicity and consistency of the what, when, where, who keywords.
