\b is a word-boundary. Since ? is not a word character, there is no  
word-boundary after the question mark.

So either make it: match = '\b(value\?)'; (the parenthesis is  
redundant btw) or if you want to ensure that no word-character follow  
“value?” then: match = '\b(value\?)(?!\w)'; The latter here is a  
negative look-ahead assertion on a word character (meaning it ensures  
that the next character is not a word character).

Btw: your naming of the elements is wrong, it should be the most  
general clasification first, then specializing it, and lastly the  
name of the language. For more info see [1]
