;.n Cut Conjunction

A collection of 3 adverbs, collectively known as Cut, with different syntax and semantics.

which means they look different inside J code, and do different things.

The 3 adverbs are distinguished from each other by having different values of n in the phrase (;.n).


NOTE: Strictly speaking, Cut is a conjunction, not an adverb. But as soon as we supply a right-hand operand n, as in (;.0) say, the result is an adverb, i.e. a modifier accepting only one operand.
