  • Normalised the wording of applying a syntax-directed operation
  • Normalised the wording of passing arguments to a syntax-directed operation
  • Used ? shorthand for syntax-directed operations where applicable

I was a bit conflicted between the terse "Operation of |NonTerminal|" and the verbose "the result of applying Operation {for,of,to} |NonTerminal|". I'm happy either way.

I left "the result of evaluating" alone, both for wording normalisation and for usage of ?. Even though it's just another syntax-directed operation, it is invoked using a special form. If the editors decide that we should include evaluation in this normalisation, I'll make the change.
