Any other word would smell as sweet
So… in playing around with some calculations and ideas that might coalesce into a preprint, I find myself wanting to coin some new terminology.
For sake of argument, suppose we have a concept called slithiness, and that people have been studying slithy widgets for some time and some length. Moreover, people have been modifying the adjective slithy with various adjectives or adverbs, so that there are now a proliferation of flavours of slithiness.
One of the oldest, or at least one with claims to the best pedigree, is weak slithiness. Anything slithy is weakly slithy, but there are examples which are weakly slithy yet not slithy.
Now: for technical reasons, I’m toying with the idea of a slightly strengthened version of weak slithiness (i.e. a slightly more restrictive condition). But what do I call it? At present, the only reasonable candidates I can think of are
2) “weak slithiness with WCB” – which is clunkier, and also commits the sin identified by G. K. Pedersen as ASHCEFLC.
Some additional remarks are in order. If we go with option (1), then I do know there are widgets which are slithy but not “strongly weakly slithy”. I am not 100% sure if slithy widgets are always “strongly weakly slithy”, but suspect they are.
