    Hm, I’ll have to come back to this. I don’t like the erasure of “baby form of” (Birkhoff duality) – the finite form of the duality not being full-fledged “adult” Birkhoff duality – but perhaps “finite” or “finitistic” instead of “baby” and you’d be happy?

    There is at least one more strikeout whose appropriateness I’d have to consider when I have more time.

    Some corrections by me, and some additions by someone else, which look generally to be improvements.

  3. Added that one direction of each distributivity law holds in any lattice.
