Or etom for the computer scientists...
It came up on another forum that I also moderate, what words are there which are used in math which are a natural part of the English language? So far the list is:
Name : Description
amicable : Relationship between divisors of two numbers
regular : Type of curve
smooth : Synonym of regular
normal : type of relationship between two groups
special : Integers an be expressed by a sum of 2 or more consecutive numbers
ideal : Type of ring
irrational : number
imaginary : number
square : number
cube : number
real : number
rational : number
natural : number
complex : number
associative : a(b*c) = (a*b)*c
commutes : a*b = b*a
faithful : Type of group relation
center : Type of subgroup
identity : a * i = i * a = a, where i is the identity
image : Range of a function
domain: domain of a function
Can you add to this list?

Maybe we could make sentences?
