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.

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.
