The importance of effective terminology cannot be understated, so
therefore I would propose the following terms:

[att|=val] - the dash-match selector
[att~=val] - the 'attribute includes' selector
[att=val] - the 'attribute is' selector
[att] - the 'attribute set' selector
+ - the adjacent sibling combinator [instead of direct adjacent sibling
the same]
~ - the preceding sibling combinator (the indirect adjacent shoots wide of
the mark)
