> Backticks around tables named after special keywords, such as items, allow us to create,
drop, and alter the table. For example
> {code:sql}
> CREATE TABLE foo.`items` (bar INT);
> DROP TABLE foo.`items`;
> ALTER TABLE `items` RENAME TO `items_`;
> {code}
> However, we cannot call
> {code:sql}
> DESCRIBE foo.`items`;
> DESCRIBE `items`;
> {code}
> The DESCRIBE query does not permit backticks to surround table names. The error returned
is
> {code:sql}
> FAILED: SemanticException [Error 10001]: Table not found `items`
> {code}
