Simpler definition needed?[edit]

I've reverted the last few edits to this article, but I'm noticing a common theme: they correctly (to be generous) summarize the definition of isodiapher (which the article gives in the first line) in simple, broken English. My assumption is that they are good faith edits by a non-native english speaker who feels a need for a clearer, simpler explanation.

An isodiapher is a simple concept that could be explained in less precise terms, so I'm going to try to add one while keeping the current explanation. This probably means adding an extra line with a disclaimer like "In other words..." to indicate that it is a summary of what is already stated. I'm not very confident in my writing ability, and worry that it will seem redundant, so I'd like to explain my motivation to future editors... there does appear to be a need for a definition in simpler english. - Syd (talk) 11:44, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
