Being British, the tag feels very ungrammatical for me so I'd like to be able to write and have it treated identically.

Addendum. Community sentiment seems to agree on changing to , for which and would be aliases.

    $\begingroup$ pshaw. (Excluding synonyms and private betas, 16 SE sites have a math tag, 1 has a maths tag.) $\endgroup$ – Gilles May 15 '14 at 15:50

    $\begingroup$ @RoryAlsop You just made me write up an english.SE question. (And I think the global synonym thing is a great idea.) $\endgroup$ – WendiKidd May 17 '14 at 2:17

    $\begingroup$ We're American. As such, we expect everyone to adapt to doing everything our way, no matter how idiotic it may be. So, instead of your reasonable idea, may I suggestion you instead consider reverting to a system of weights and measures based loosely on King Henry I’s shoe size? Okay fine, +1. $\endgroup$ – Jaydles May 18 '14 at 1:40

    $\begingroup$ It appears as though a question needs to be tagged maths, and somebody scoring 5+ in that tag, before a synonym can be created. But I agree, that's the way to go. $\endgroup$ – Xynariz May 23 '14 at 20:58

  • $\begingroup$ @Xynariz Normally the mods (or at this point, the employees) end up handling tag synonyms. $\endgroup$ – Kevin May 26 '14 at 23:23

Or better yet, make and both synonyms of , that way, everyone is happy and neither way of spelling is shown favoritism.
