Written below or underneath; as, iota subscript. (See under Iota.) Specifically (Math.), said of marks, figures, or letters (suffixes), written below and usually to the right of other letters to distinguish them; as, a, n, 2, in the symbols Xa, An, Y2. See Suffix, n., 2, and Subindex.
Anything written below.
Text that appears slightly lower than the text around it. Superscript is text that appears slightly higher than the text around it.
character printed below a line of type; in H2O, for example, the subscript 2 indicates the number of H atoms.
A character or symbol printed partly below the base line of the text.
a character or symbol set or printed or written beneath or slightly below and to the side of another character
written or printed below and to one side of another character
a lowered symbol
A letter or digit written below the adjacent characters.
Text that is slightly lower than other text on a line. Subscripts are often used in scientific formulas.
inferior CHARACTERs that appear below or covering the BASE LINE, usually with a smaller POINT SIZE. Opposite of SUPERSCRIPT.
In typography, characters set in a small point size and positioned below the baseline, also called inferior.
A character printed smaller than standard text and positioned slightly below the baseline; commonly used in mathematical and chemical notation.
Text which is written on a lower baseline, and usually in a smaller font, than its surrounding text, as for example the x in lx.
the small characters set below the normal letters or figures.
Letters or symbols positioned slightly below the baseline within a line of text and generally smaller in size.
See: Inferior Character. to top
A character slightly smaller than the rest of the font, set below the baseline.
(inferior): Small character which appears above the x-height.
A subscript is a number, figure, or indicator that appears below the normal line of type, typically used in a formula, mathematical expression, or description of a chemical compound. Probably the most famous example of a subscript is the number 2 in the formula for the molecule of water: H2O.
