It’s the slash.
The forward slash, that is.
Slashes have many uses. Most often they indicate a choice, an implicit “or,” as in “Are you single? Yes/No.” But sometimes they indicate a strong link or relationship, a kind of “and,” such as “joint American/British operations.”
In poetry quotations they’re used to indicate line breaks. In spoken English, pronouncing them aloud has become so common, particularly among sorority girls, that they’ve been called a new conjunction. Example:
Bring a date to the party. Slash don’t, whatever.
