@bkardell The problem with plural is that it doesn't work when reading right-to-left, which is usually the natural way to read selectors. For example, `a ~ b > c` would be

> Select any `c` element
> that is a child of a `b` element
> that is a following sibling [can't use plural!] of an `a` element.

"Following" is confusing indeed. What about "posterior" or "subsequent"?

 - Next Sibling Combinator
 - Posterior Sibling Combinator
