(PDF) missing white space between words

One problem I keep having with PDF files that have been remediated by
various sources is the merging of two words into one.
This seems to happen fairly randomly, at least non-visually.
Why this behavior?
Could it be due to reading order tagging of text presented in a column
layout where there is no space between the last word in one column and
the first word in the next?
Any words from the wise (at least wiser than I, which isn't hard)
would be helpful.

Work hard. Have fun. Make history.
