Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The slash (/) is a sign used as a punctuation mark and for various other purposes. It is often called a forward slash, and many other alternative names. The slash goes back to the days of ancient Rome. In the early modern period, in the Fraktur script, which was widespread through Europe in the Middle Ages, one slash (/) represented a comma, while two slashes (//) represented a dash. The two slashes eventually evolved into a sign similar to the equals sign (=), then being further simplified to a single dash or hyphen (-).show more
