# Can we have the tag **maths** as a synonym for *math* please

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.

• pshaw. (Excluding synonyms and private betas, 16 SE sites have a math tag, 1 has a maths tag.) May 15, 2014 at 15:50
• So what you are saying is i need to request this as a global synonym, yes? May 15, 2014 at 17:56
• @RoryAlsop You just made me write up an english.SE question. (And I think the global synonym thing is a great idea.) May 17, 2014 at 2:17
• 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. May 18, 2014 at 1:40
• 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. May 23, 2014 at 20:58
• @RoryAlsop Did you end up posting this on MSE? I'd like a link if so, so I can upvote :) May 25, 2014 at 21:25
• @Xynariz Normally the mods (or at this point, the employees) end up handling tag synonyms. May 26, 2014 at 23:23
