Thanks, everyone. A friend has suggested to use "double-octiles" for
quantiles based on division into 16 groups of equal
frequency. How do you
think about this? "Sedeciles", as suggested by Nick Cox
[and Nick Winter], is a possible name too.
"Double-octiles" is a mix of English out of French out of
Latin and straight Latin. These linguistic mongrels
are a bad idea. (Like "television"...)
I still vote against a new term, as you are asking.
