Ah, it is from Bjarni, so it has to do with printing, prettier printing.

See man 7 groff:

\/     Increases the width of the preceding glyph so that the
        spacing between that glyph and the following glyph is
        correct if the following glyph is a roman glyph.

It has no effect on terminals, only on paper.
