In logic and computer programming, a conjunction of two logical statements is said to be true if and only if both statements are themselves true. For instance:
"The sky is blue" and "the grass is green"
is a conjunction of two logical statements. Note that a conjunction in this context is not the same as a grammatical conjunction.
In product manuals, one often sees things like:
"These values are anded together". However, "anded" doesn't seem like a proper English term, and it seems like there should be a verb for the act of combining two logical statements with a conjunction. Other logical operators like "xor" certainly use "xored" or "xor'd", but "anded" seems less acceptable somehow.
Is there a nice English word for this operation? Some thoughts:
"conjoined" doesn't seem sufficiently precise, because we're not just sticking the logical statements together, we're combining them with a particular operator (i.e. the clauses could still be conjoined with a disjunction operator instead).
"conjuncted" might be appropriate, but I can't find anyone using it on the net, and I've never seen it used before in manuals and the like.
