  Talk:Hull classification symbol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Links to the symbols are going to be a deadend BTW, since almost every one of those is ambiguous with random other things in WP, and sooner or later someone will come along and replace these link with their idea of something unambiguous.
In other cases, it would be better to redirect to an aggregate article that discusses several together - for instance, US aircraft carrier hull symbols could elucidate the short and sordid lives of the "CVA" and "CVB" designations, instead of having rather thin weak articles a la SSBN.
An explanatory section at the end of this article would also work, since most of the symbols, such as CL, are completely obvious and the light cruiser link explains the general concept.

 Goodman's Aesthetics
Which symbols are successfully projected—and, for instance, which artistic styles are perceived as familiar and which ones as revolutionary, or which linguistic formulas are categorized as literal and which ones as metaphorical—largely depends on what is customary, “entrenched,” within a certain cultural, artistic, or linguistic community.
Symbol schemes that are notational can be compared in their working to the way digital instruments of measurement work: for any measurement indicated by the instrument there is always a definite answer to the question: what is the measurement.
Goodman's theory of symbol systems, as composed of schemes of characters that are governed, depending on the sort of system, by different syntactical rules, and correlated to their extensions according to differing semantic rules, is at the basis of his claims on the identity conditions of works of art of different kinds.
