A bracket is a pair of tall fore- or back-facing punctuation marks that are often used to separate a text or data section from its surrounds. Individual brackets are often deployed in symmetric pairs and can be recognized as a left or right bracket, or alternately, an opening or closing bracket, depending on the directionality of the context.

Rounded brackets (also known as parentheses), square brackets, curly brackets (commonly known as braces), and angle brackets (also known as chevrons), as well as other less frequent symbol pairings, are all examples of the mark.

In addition to referring to the general class of punctuation, the term bracket is also used to refer to a specific type of bracket that differs by area. An unqualified ‘bracket’ in most English-speaking nations refers to the round bracket; in the United States, it refers to the square bracket.

In mathematics, several types of brackets are used to denote distinct mathematical functions and subformulas, with unique mathematical meanings.

Parentheses carry additional material that either clarifies (in the style of a gloss) or is unrelated to the primary topic. Using a pair of commas as the delimiter has a milder impact, however if the phrase contains commas for other purposes, visual confusion may ensue. Instead of using a couple of dashes to bracket the parenthetical, use a pair of dashes.

Parentheses are typically considered different from other brackets in American language, and calling them “brackets” is uncommon.

In formal writing, parentheses can be used to provide extra information, such as “Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) talked at length.” They can also be used as a shorthand for nouns that are “either single or plural,” such as “the claim(s).” It can also be used for gender-neutral language, particularly in languages that have grammatical gender, as in “(s)he agreed with his/her physician” (the slash in the second instance, as one alternative is replacing the other, not adding to it).


In casual writing and stream of consciousness literature, parenthetical sentences are frequently utilized. William Faulkner, a southern American author (see Absalom, Absalom! and the Quentin part of The Sound and the Fury), and poet E. E. Cummings are two examples.

Where the dash is presently used in alternatives, such as “parenthesis)(parentheses), parentheses have historically been utilized. Examples of this use may be found throughout Fowler’s editions.

Parentheses can be nested (usually, one set of parentheses inside another set of parentheses). This is a term that is rarely used in professional writing (though sometimes other brackets will be used for one or more inner set of parentheses ).

Inside parentheses or other brackets, any punctuation is independent of the rest of the text: “Mrs. Pennyfarthing (What do you mean, Mrs. Pennyfarthing?) My landlord (indeed, that was her name!)” The explanatory text in parentheses is a parenthesis in this case. The content in parentheses is generally brief and contained inside a single phrase.

When multiple phrases of additional content are used in parenthesis, the last full stop is either placed within the parentheses or removed entirely. Again, the parenthesis suggests that the text’s meaning and flow are supplementary to the rest of the text, and that if the parenthesized phrases were deleted, the overall meaning and flow would remain unaltered.
