Right you English Language geeks here is a Question.

Is there a better way of saying "and or"? As in one word with the same meaning?

'X or Y or both'

(I used Strunk & White, Elements of Style - I recommend you have a read of it. Tiny book, lots of good stuff)

Or, depending on it's usage, 'X or Y' can suffice, or 'X and Y'

'and/or' seems to be increasing in usage. But you can only really use it in written language, and it kind of breaks the flow of writing.
