Improve wording on "can't connect signal outlet to control inlet" and "signal outlet connect to nonsignal inlet (ignored)" #889

Could these error messages be rephrased as
"can't connect signal outlet to message inlet"
"signal outlet connected to message inlet (connection ignored)"
respectively (with "connect" possibly changed to "connected")?

It would make the mismatch between signals and messages easier to grasp by not introducing the terms of "control" and "non-signal" inlets. I have made the experience that novices to Pd and computer music often seem to wonder what a control or non-signal inlet is and what got ignored.
