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

 ->
maps to, to
 -<
 =
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
 >>
f :: Int -> Int
f has type Int to Int
 \
lambda

should we add informal, possibly bad suggestions like "then", "is", "gets"?
