I know of no use for the backslash in English. That is computerese, IMO.Originally Posted by japanjapan
How should I call these two signs:
which one is "slash"? Which one is "forward slash"?
Maybe their names have nothing to do with the word "slash", then what are they?
Your advice is very helpful, I looked up the word" backslash" and figured out the question.Originally Posted by MikeNewYork
"/" is called forward slash
"\" is called backslash.
If someone just says 'slash', I'd take they meant /.
BTW What is '|' called?
nice question!Originally Posted by tdol

Does '¬' have a name?
That I do not know. ;)Originally Posted by tdol
