The tag for ordinary should be made a synonym for penny farthing or vice verse. Technically, ordinary is the correct bike geek term but most people know them as penny farthings.

1I'm wondering if this has the potential to cause confusion. Will the non-bike geeks who arrive on the site misuse the ordinary tag?– jimchristie ModApr 9, 2020 at 16:58
@jimchristie it's not likely to be very common, as it's not an obvious tag. We can always retag if it happens– Chris HApr 15, 2020 at 9:06
Try tagging something with a synonom ("ordinary" in this case) and the SE backend will put in the root synonom tag. Note its not a bidirectional link.
