>Mark's right, at least about Merriam-Webster; "and/or" is listed in the
Eleventh Edition at my elbow.<
I stand (or rather sit) corrected. I have an older (30 years old) copy of
Merriam-Webster and it isn't listed. Regardless, "and/or" is a poor
construct and causes interpretation problems, especially for individuals who
use English as a second (or third, or.) language.
