Since we had an unfulfilled link to almost mathematics and someone was good enough to tweet about it, I thought I’d copy it in. No time at present to neaten it up.
added some references:

Then I changed the page name from “almost mathematics” to “almost module”.
Okay? Otherwise it seems too much like a contest for inventing the worst possible terminology ever. :-)
And notice that we have an old entry almost scheme already.
Sure.
Is there a hint of something differential going on?
Almost.
Just kidding. There should be. The “almost”-terminology is really a linguistic degeneration from “almost zero”, just in the sense of infinitesimals. I suppose? (I only almost looked at the literature…)
