Not sure why and are separate tags. One should at least be a synonym of the other.

    Apparently there are currently only 4 questions tagged rhoticity, so it's not surprising I haven't gained the minimum 5 points required to cast a synonym vote. Personally I think it's not really worth having at all - we should just edit all 4 to match the other 28 questions tagged rhotic and be done with it. I can't see why anyone would have wanted to type the extra three letters, and I don't see any meaningful distinction in context (besides which, if there were a difference we shouldn't be thinking about merging them in the first place).

Crisis averted ;)

Per FumbleFingers's comment: Retagged the four questions to use .

Now go vote on Tag Synonyms on Low Use Tags so we never have to go through this exercise again!


I’ve made these tags synonyms now.
