in reply to Divide a list of string into substrings

Provided Re: Divide a list of string into substrings by BillKSmith is the right interpretation...

... this smells like a problem from lattice theory plus a cost function to be minimized.

Intuitively I'd try to start to take all pairs from the input and construct their decomposition.

Then you repeat this step with the resulted set of distincts substrings as new input again.

Keep repeating again till there are no new decompositions.

Though you need to mathematically proof that intermediate steps stay optimal and that the desired solution is reached.
