I'm taking a break from proofreading a paper. I'm reading it out loud, because I find this is the best way to catch mistakes; it forces me to look at every word.
There are inequalities in this paper, so the signs ≤ and ≥ come up a lot. How do you pronounce these? When I was in college I pronounced them "less than or equal to" and "greater than or equal to". But sometime around the first year of graduate school I seem to have shifted to "at most" and "at least", which have the obvious advantage of being shorter.
Edit (11:15 pm): It appears I've mentioned this before.
