Jargon

This tickled my fancy:

For all the other parameters, G(de, e, r) has no real structure.

[R. Corran, E.-K. Lee, S.-J. Lee, Braid groups of imprimitive complex reflection groups, J. Algebra, 2015]

(No, it’s not floppy — it’s a complex reflection group. Here “real” means the real numbers, and “complex” means the complex numbers; some complex reflection groups can be described using only the real numbers, but not this one.)
