Narrowly interpreting your requirements (only quotes are with
double quotes (never containing escaped same) and strip quotes off)
and tested only as you see ;-)
>>> import re
>>> rx = re.compile(r'"([^"]*)"|(\w+)')
>>> s = 'abc def "this is a test" ok'
>>> [a or b for a,b in rx.findall(s)]
['abc', 'def', 'this is a test', 'ok']
