That is mathematical logic talk

conjunction is logical "and"

disjunction is logical "or"

"and" is unambiguous English and

[ intersection of sets ]

"or" means either, or both

For example if I say A or B is true, then only A could be true or only B could be true or both could be true.

[ union of sets]
