**Parenthesis** is a syntactical technique to disambiguate the meaning of a logical formula.

It allows one to specify that a logical formula should (temporarily) be regarded as being a single entity, being on the same level as a statement variable.

Such a formula is referred to as being **in parenthesis**.

Typically, a formal language, in defining its formal grammar, ensures by means of **parenthesis** that all of its well-formed words are uniquely readable.

Generally, **brackets** are used to indicate that certain formulas are **in parenthesis**.

The brackets that are mostly used are **round ones**, the **left (round) bracket** $($ and the **right (round) bracket** $)$.
