grout lines


Explanation:
I pastee the following info I found under:ImprovementNet America's Home Improvement Network_files

Ceramic Tile: Installing Floor Tile Next Step: Wall Underlayments
Once you've established the layout, you can start setting tile.

Be sure your floor surface is thoroughly clean of dust and debris.

Setting and Spacing Tile
Lay the first tile in a corner, twisting it a little to set it into the adhesive.
Keeping consistent spacing between the tiles is critical for straight, uniform grout lines.

Some tile are cast with spacing lugs along the edges so you can butt those up and get uniform grout lines. And some tile come pre-mounted on plastic grids so the spacing is already established.

G. Luck!

grout (between tiles)


Explanation:
The "space" between the tiles is commonly referred to, simply, as "grout". While saying "between the tiles" is not incorrect, it is unnecessary, as it is understood.

grouting


Explanation:
Hi! I also wanted to add that aside from the term "grout", which I proposed previously, one often hears the term "grouting" (referring to the same thing -- the space between the tiles)
Both are correct.
Thanks.
