comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@Frank: Good point, it didn't occur to me to search Google Books. I just did a web search and didn't find anything nontechnical (aside from the wiktionary entry) so that's why I asked.

For what it's worth, I just realized that I get a spelling error for "rotationally" as well.

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
Regardless, since my curiosity is piqued I would like to know the answer to this question itself, not to get sidetracked about the proper word usage. (But thank you for the suggestions nonetheless.)

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@DanBron: Yeah, but since it's in a mathematical context rather than a biological one I want to emphasize the word "reflection" (since that's the operation).

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@PeterShor: Yeah, but it doesn't fit well in a sentence in which the others use the original form, disregarding the redundancy that curiousdannii pointed out. (e.g. "shapes A and B are rotationally and reflectionally symmetric" sounds much better than"shapes A and B are rotationally symmetric and symmetric under reflection".)

comment Is there a term for a sentence that suggests a question but isn't one?
Shouldn't the second one end with a period?

comment Does “Friday midnight” refer to the beginning of the day on Friday or to the end?
@EpicGuy: I always took something containing the word "night" to be referring to the end of the day, not the start of the day... but then again, that's why I asked.

@BlessedGeek: Why is it religion dependent?
