[Mono-dev] @ Sign - General Question

I have a general query. I haven't seen any mention of it on reference
books, and an online search brings up
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/monoadn/inx.html so I thought I'd post
the question here.

I have a delegate called MyDelegate and I want to call it
asynchronously. In Visual Studio, the IntelliSense comes up with the
completion as: the parameters of the delegate (if any), and
AsyncCallback asyn and the last parameter: "object @object" (without
the quotes). And now to my question - what does the @ stand for? I
know it is a string literal in C#, but what else can it stand for?
Then on that link (see above) it indexes it to: "around variables in
templates, 236".

Any help appreciated,
