English shape terms discussion

    Keywords: Go term

EnglishShapeTermsDiscussion is for people to suggest/document English terms that describe common shapes. Please feel free to add words or diagrams. Please do not add terms from other languages, and be wary of adding their English translations unless they have a good descriptive value.

Since some of these terms may be less commonly used than their foreign language counterparts, please link terms to their respective pages so that people can learn the foreign words, as well.
