I have ls aliased to ls and some flags, however, I want to use the original, 'vanilla' version of ls in another alias. Is there a way for me to call the original version of ls?

    \ls will also use the unaliased version – Argonauts Jun 6 '16 at 17:58

You could run command ls or use the full path to it explicitly like /bin/ls

If you specify the full path you won't be using any functions or aliases. Similarly, command can find the executable with the given name without doing normal function/alias lookups. See help command for more
