Change Log:

Problem:

Some pronounciations are misleading or inconsistent. This proposal covers all the pronounciations I commented on recently.

Solution:

Change the pronounciations.

Proposal:

Change the pronounciations as follows:

Word current pronounciation proposed pronounciation rationale
+x/string plus-x-string plus-x-slash-string audio-to-writing correspondence
-trailing-garbage minus-trailing-garbage dash-trailing-garbage consistency with -trailing
f>s F to S f-to-s consistency with d>s
s>f S to F s-to-f consistency with s>d
x\string- x-string-minus x-backslash-string-minus audio-to-writing correspondence

"than"

For many words containing ">" or "<" we have inconsistent pronounciations, some with "than" and some without. Depending on which way we want to go, one of the following subsections should be accepted, and the other rejected:

Have "than"

Change the "less" into "less-than" in the pronounciations of 0< <# d0< du< f0< f<

Change the "greater" into "greather-than" in the pronounciations of #> 0>

Do without "than"

Change the "less-than" into "less" in the pronounciations of < d< u<

Change the "greater-than" into "greater" in the pronounciations of > u>

I agree with this proposal.

One argument to have "than" (i.e., to prefer "less-than" over "less" for the less-than sign <) is that "less" can be a literal part of a word name (e.g. show-less), but there is little chance that a word name will contain "less-than" literally.

Then probably all the corresponding cases should contain "than" part.

2022-09-14 Settle on 'Have "than"', but without <# #>.

Problem:

Some pronounciations are misleading or inconsistent. This proposal covers all the pronounciations I commented on recently.

Solution:

Change the pronounciations.

Change the pronounciations. Don't change <# #>, because they are not comparisons.
