    No, [ ] those are brackets. {} are braces. () are parentheses

    I'm not sure about the English part, but that seems about right, although I prefer the term "chicken lips" for the last one.

    Dictionary meaning - especially the Oxford one

    My dictionary -

    Paranthesis
    1 additional word, phrase or sentence inserted into a passage which would be complete without it, and usually separated from it by brackets, dashes or commas.

    Brackets
    2 any one of the marks used in pairs for enclosing words, figures, etc to separate them from what precedes or follows, eg () round brackets, [] square brackets, <> angle brackets, {} braces

    pa·ren·the·sis (p-rnth-ss)
    n. pl. par·en·the·ses (-sz)

    Either or both of the upright curved lines, ( ), used to mark off explanatory or qualifying remarks in writing or printing or enclose a sum, product, or other expression considered or treated as a collective entity in a mathematical operation.

    A qualifying or amplifying word, phrase, or sentence inserted within written matter in such a way as to be independent of the surrounding grammatical structure.
    A comment departing from the theme of discourse; a digression.

    An interruption of continuity; an interval: “This is one of the things I wasn't prepared forthe amount of unfilled time, the long parentheses of nothing” (Margaret Atwood).
