I've been criticized for my elisp terminology-- and properly so--, so
let me rephrase:

(car '("one" "two" "three"))

returns a string consisting of the first element (?) of the list.  Is
there an elisp function which either (1) returns one string for each
element of the list or (2) returns one string containing all elements of
the list?


(1) "one" "two" "three"


(2) "onetwothree"

preferably (1).

Thanks again.

P.S. It seems strange that elisp has so many ways to manipulate lists,
but doesn't seem to have this very simple functionality.
