    Anxiety / Anxious

    Hi,

    I don't understand why some write "Anxiety / Anxious", with spaces between the slash.

    What's the difference between "Anxiety / Anxious" (with space) or "Anxiety/Anxious" (without space)?

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Re: Anxiety / Anxious

    There's no difference, except that some people may find it easier to read with the spaces.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
