How do you pronounce this symbol, /sci/?
Personally, I pronounce it like I would pronounce the letter d.
I switch between "del" and "dee" because in some contexts, it's the same thing as the differential operator for gradient, and in some contexts, it's more accessible for whoever you're talking to to just refer to it as a derivative.
They're the same thing though.
I'm a norwegian and we don't give a fuck about greek in maths because it doesn't matter how a failed country that can't even do math would call it.
Here and in deutschland the accepted term is del
copy and paste the symbol and see what comes up. hint: its not delta
its not a delta. there are no slight variations in letters on computers. ever notice that? fucking christ people are dumb as fuck sometimes. you are wrong.
theres no ambiguity with die. its not a del. its not a delta. its not a fucking dee (D). its not a cursive d. its not a "rond d", you fucking frog, thats too many syllables.
its die. short and sweet.
no wonder western civilization is going to shit. even the crouts and people of the herring stench are idiots.
technically its a stylized d, or rond d, in french, i guess. as per wikipedia
dee, delta, and del are something else entirely, at least in english. if youre language is german or norwegian maybe not.
i suppose die is a made up word, but its short and easy to say, which is good when the sybol comes up repeatedly in equations.
i suppose id tolerate "partial" also, even though its 2 syllables instead of 1. its technically correct and more descriptive
have you considered maybe looking at the right wikipedia page?
"The symbol may be referred to as "del", "dee", "partial dee", "partial", "curly dee", or "dabba"."
