& is rather frequently used to mean "and".
& be read in Japanese? I think these are some likely readings:
Case 1: Assume sentence structure is of the form "A & B", where "A" and "B" are objects. Now the word "and" would just be doing listing:
- Apples and oranges
This seems easy to achieve with
や for inexhaustive listing and
と for exhaustive listing.
Case 2: Now if "A" and "B" are not objects, but events/instructions/etc. The word "and" does not merely list. It can imply sequence:
- Brush my teeth and go to bed
This seems to be achieved using the て form of the verb. (Can
& in Japanese do that?)
(Question) What are the ways that
& is used in Japanese and how should it be read in each case?
