The strings "x" and "y" are the x-axis values and y-axis values respectively. Plot[1/x, {x,0.5,3}, AxesLabel->{"x","y"}] This is documented in _The Mathematica Book_ (Third Edition) by Stephen Wolfram. If you are using Mathematica 3.0 and have access to the notebook front end, you can bring up some introductory material on customizing graphs by evaluating the following expression in a notebook: FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["MainBook", "1.9.3"]] -- P.J.
