Meanwhile, & is for ampersand, a.k.a. &
Furthermore, a.k.a; is for "Also Known As"... i.e. another name.
I've got a "smart aleck of the day" award around here somewhere for you...... :P
What do I get for "anti-virgule"?
A bit furthermore, i.e. stands for id est and means roughly "that is".
The way I remember the difference between i.e. and e.g. is that, people think i.e. means "in/for example" but actually that's e.g. -- i.e. is "specifically"
Just never, never, never say "ect.". Makes me twitch every time I see it in print. Even worse when I see someone I know is an experienced UNIX/Linux user make that botch.
@GeorgeJempty I always thought of "i.e." as "in essence"
I always thought that i.e. was In Example, and e.g. Example Given...
Actually, e.g. stands for exempli gratia in Latin, which means "for the sake of example".
Additionalmost, i.e. is for "id est", a Latin browser most people try to forget.
And & is short for et c.
Is that a pointer in this notation?
and & is for &
which actually sometimes happens in some conversion processes and you end up having literal & when you expect an &...
