Meaning of H&

What Does H& Mean?

H& means "Have A Nice Day". H& is typically used at the end of a conversation as a way of wishing the recipient all the best for the rest of the day.

The & (called an ampersand) is short for AND, meaning the whole phrase is HAND (which is a commonly used alternative to H&). This method of abbreviating is also used in B& (Band).

"Have A Nice Day" is an expression commonly used in the US to conclude a conversation. Since it is often uttered by service employees to customers at the end of a transaction, its usage has resulted in the phrase developing a cultural connotation of impersonality and lack of interest.

Of note, "Have a Nice Day" is the title of an album and a hit single by the American rock band Bon Jovi.

An Academic Look at H&

H& is defined as a cyber term because some of its characters are used as substitutes for letters. Most cyber terms were introduced to reduce the number of key strokes required to write the word, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices, this efficiency is no longer required. Nevertheless, cyber terms are still regularly used to make messages more entertaining or to express individuality.

Cyber terms differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations.
