Some notes for beginners on how to pronounce those strange Haskell operators etc.
This is just a rough start to this page. Obviously needs more work.
This can be a table with formal and informal ways of saying various operators and code snippets such as
Symbol  Pronounciation 

> 
maps to, to 
< 

= 
is 
== 
equals 
=> 
is a witness for, implies 
. 
dot (could be used anywhere, but especially in, for example, Data.Char.ord), ring, compose (for example, negate . (+1)), (silent) (for example, forall a. (Num a) => a) 
< 
drawn from, from 
++ 
append 
>>= 
bind 
>> 
then 
\ 
lambda 
Example  Pronounciation 

f :: Int > Int 
f has type Int to Int 
should we add informal, possibly bad suggestions like "then", "is", "gets"?
