You cross posted to the wrong lists really, regex syntax is as defined
by schema, not by xsl or xquery, and that defines \w as

[#x0000-#x10FFFF]-[\p{P}\p{Z}\p{C}] (all characters except the set of
"punctuation", "separator" and "other" characters)


By backtick I assume you mean U+0060 [`] which isn't a quotation mark, it's a grave accent and has unicode class Sk so isn't punctuation, separator or other. (Sk is "symbols")
