expr

Introduced in the 1977 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents an expression. An expression (formula) starts with a basic value denoting object (expratom). Optionally, there may be more. If there is, first comes a (binary) operator, and then another basic value denoting object. The binary operator, in some cases, may be negated by a not sign ('). This additional part is called an exprtail. An expression may have any number of exprtails.
