Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Currently both the tags and exist with close to equal numbers of questions but the former being a bit more popular.

Since I don't have enough rep to suggest this through the tag system and it's obviously just a spelling/hyphenation difference would somebody like to make the two synonyms please?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – CRABOLO, Aziz Shaikh, Scimonster, Martijn Pieters, Emrakul
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

"n-gram" is probably more correct, so "ngram" should be the synonym. – Awesome Poodles Aug 4 '11 at 8:04

It might be a long while before a synonym gets added/approved. So, in the mean time, I retagged all questions as .

As I understand it, after the cache clears in a day or 2, this will at least stop low-rep users from using ngram as a tag.
