13.4 Slash (Oblique Stroke) [VII.28.e]

The diagonal slash, which is also known as a virgule or solidus, is often referred to in braille as the oblique stroke. When such a mark is used between print abbreviations, words, or numbers, this sign is represented in braille by dots 3-4.

A slash terminates the effect of a composition sign, therefore, when a slash occurs between two capitalized or italicized words or abbreviations, the appropriate capital, double capital, or italic sign (to be studied later) is repeated before the second word or abbreviation. Examples:

TEN/cj [initials at the end of a letter]
