#19 – Contextual Keywords

There are some keywords in C# that are considered contextual, in that their usage is determined by their context.  Technically, you are free to use these keywords as identifiers, without needing the ‘@’ symbol.  But you should avoid doing this, since it could lead to confusion.

The contextual keywords are:  add, dynamic, get, global, partial, remove, set, value, var, where, yield

string var = "Don't do this, either";
