It is supposed to mark metalinguistic usage, and so is a bit out
of place as an adverbifier.  It is rather more the type of
thing that one would use to make up an ad hoc discursive bridi or even an
indicator.  It can also manipulate the text without affecting truth value
or claim, or rather it does so after the mannerof an indicator.

This might be in the front matter of the YACC grammar, and Cowan might have
it in the text paper.  It is part of the priority rules for grammar/lexer
