    Smile Punctuation

    Hi guys!
    My email address contains the (_) symbol and I did't realise until recently that I have a problem telling my email address over the phone. I know now that this one has even few names: understrike, underbar, low line and low dash. But which of them is more common in use. Is there any difference in BrE and AmE?

    Much appreciated for your help.

    Re: Punctuation

    I always say underscore. I believe that's usual in NAmE.
