    Plus minus zero

    Could you verify if the expression in the title is English? If it doesn't sound familiar to you, chances are, it isn't.

    Re: Plus minus zero

    Were you even able to guess what the phrase could mean? Judging from your response this certainly isn't an English expression but I'm just curious.

    I can guess, but it's not a standard expression. The meaning, however, is fairly clear.

    Re: Plus minus zero

    Hi,

    In Polish 'plus minus zero' means 'more or less zero', but I think in English it doesn't sound nice.

    Greetings from Poland!
