    I don’t have time to edit things now, but the example is wrong.

    Was that a coincidence you started this entry on the same day as I wrote this?

    What David Ben-Zvi says above seems worth including. Something like

    For any finite group the number of its conjugacy classes is equal to the number of its irreducible representations. For finite groups of Lie type this result can be strengthened to show that there is a canonical way to match conjugacy classes of a group GG to the irreducible representations of its Langlands dual GG'.

    Please do!

    OK, though I’m nervous about Ben-Zvi’s

    I won’t give the precise statement but I think this is not a particularly misleading simplification

    Anyway, doing that had me then create group of Lie type.

    Just add a corresponding disclaimer, making it clear that what you say is meant as a helpful guiding idea, not as a precise statement.

    Thanks. I have added a warning and links, and linked to it from group.

    Wikipedia is here useful, esp. for terminology: group of Lie type.
