Wrap a string in brackets

Parenthesise a character vector by wrapping elements in brackets, dashes or commas.

Usage
parenthesize(x, type = c("round_brackets", "square_brackets",
  "curly_brackets", "angle_brackets", "chevrons", "hyphens", "en_dashes",
  "em_dashes", "commas"))

parenthesise(x, type = c("round_brackets", "square_brackets",
  "curly_brackets", "angle_brackets", "chevrons", "hyphens", "en_dashes",
  "em_dashes", "commas"))
Arguments
x
Character vector to wrap in parenthenses.
type
String naming the type of parenthesis.
Value

  • A character vector of the input wrapped in parentheses.

Note

English grammar terminology is awfully confusing. The verb 'to parenthesise' means to wrap a phrase in brackets or dashes or commas, thus denoting it as supplementary material that could be left out. A 'parenthesis' as a noun is often used as a synonym for a round bracket.
