Consistency of block names in the Scratch 3.0 GUI

Recently, I was having a look around the current Scratch 3.0 GUI, and realised something strange in the Sound category. The blocks have inconsistent names! Here's what I'm on about:

This block says "Start sound Pop", whereas this block:

Says "Play Sound Pop"

This is just a small inconsistency that I would like to point out to the Scratch Team.

Thanks for your time!

This might be intentional to make a more clear difference between them
Play sound until done means that you playing the whole sound
Start sound means your starting the sound playing.

Hey! Scratch 3.0 GUI is very cool!

En général, une signature est une bannière, ou autre chose du genre. Là, c'est juste une phrase qui vous dit que vous pouvez passer au prochain post, car vous avez terminé de lire le post posté par ma15fo43.

Maybe…

A lot of people (including my old friends) used to do this:
forever
play sound [meow v]
end
whereas,

people are less likely to do this.

Yes I agree, “start sound” seems like it could cause less confusion so I don't really think it needs to be changed

Ah, that seems reasonable.
