When should we say ’type 2-theory’ rather than ’2-type theory’?
My own inclination is to always say the former and never the latter. I really want to say “2-(type theory)” but that’s hard to pronounce correctly, while to my ear “2-type theory” sounds like “(2-type) theory” whereas “type 2-theory” is easier to understand as meaning “2-(type theory)”. But I didn’t want to rename the page unilaterally; any other opinions?
Matches ’Klein 2-geometry’ where it all began for me, so I’m in.
One potential source of confusion for “type 2-theory” is “type-2 theory”, e.g. Type two theory of effectivity, Type II string theory!
I don’t personally hear any danger of “type-2 theory”; when I say it the space is much longer than the hyphen.
