Does / mean "of"? What does "Audit / Contract Monthly report/ Toolbox meeting Minutes /signed attendance sheet" mean? It is a cell of a table.

  • It means OR, but in order to find that out you do need to know one of its names is slash. The contents of the cell should indicate which of the options applies. – Andrew Leach Aug 15 '13 at 7:04
  • "Audit / Contract Monthly report/ Toolbox meeting Minutes /signed attendance sheet" is the whole content of a table cell. – Steven Aug 15 '13 at 7:07
  • It still means or. – Andrew Leach Aug 15 '13 at 7:09

    “Or” is the most common meaning, but in this context I suspect that it represents a line break instead. – Bradd Szonye Aug 15 '13 at 7:26

The slash has several uses. It usually indicates a choice or alternative (“or”), and it sometimes serves the same purpose as a dash. In this case, the slash is probably a virgule, a punctuation mark used to separate lines when quoting poetry and similar formatted text. In this case, it appears to separate several list items in a context where they can't be put on separate lines.
