Individual mathematicians often have their own way of pronouncing mathematical expres-

sions and in many cases there is no generally accepted “correct” pronunciation.

llo

Distinctions made in writing are often not made explicit in speech; thus the sounds f x may

.S

−−→

be interpreted as any of: f x, f (x), fx , F X, F X, F X . The difference is usually made clear

fu

by the context; it is only when confusion may occur, or where he/she wishes to emphasise

the point, that the mathematician will use the longer forms: f multiplied by x, the function

M

Similarly, a mathematician is unlikely to make any distinction in speech (except sometimes

a difference in intonation or length of pauses) between pairs such as the following:

x + (y + z) and (x + y) + z

√ √

ax + b and ax + b

an − 1 and an−1
