Having just acquired enough reputation to suggest tag synonyms, I took a quick look through the list of tags. I was able to successfully suggest one new synonym, but was unable to do so for other pairs. Apparently, I haven't answered enough questions under these tags to qualify. I think these tag synonyms are pretty straightforward, so I thought I'd post them here so someone else can create them.

  • battery = batteries
  • map = mapping
  • wifi = wireless
  • avr = atmega = atmel


  • $\begingroup$ As an aside, I just realized that on some level, requiring a score of 5 or more on a tag to create a synonym is a little silly. Since the specified use is "common, alternate spellings or phrasings" for example “bike” for "bicycle", or “sock” for "socks". So anyone with a grasp of the English language should be able to recognize these as the same. Granted, there is some domain knowledge required for some synonyms (e.g. avr = atmega = atmel), but others are simply English (e.g. battery = batteries, and map = mapping). Just an observation... $\endgroup$ – Ben Apr 20 '15 at 13:05

Thanks Ben, I have created tag synonyms for:

The overlap between and is minimal, since not all communication is , and while all are , not all are.
