If I have a long cell array, say a 1x120 cell (its arbitrary), each containing a different word like 'the' in one, and 'or' in the next. How can I combine the entire thing into one long string if possible?

cellData = {'Matlab','is','a','high','level','programming','language'}; % Cell array
combinedString = [];
for i = 1:length(cellData)
combinedString = [combinedString cellData{i}]; % string
end
combinedString % display string

or, without spaces:
str = [cellData{:}]
