If I understand correctly, what's being used here is the "-wise" suffix, unrelated to wisdom, which Merriam Webster lists as "adverb combining form" here https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/wise (though you have to scroll down a lot), which is defined as 1 a :in the manner of * crabwise * fanwise b :in the position or direction of * slantwise * clockwise 2 :with regard to :in respect of * dollarwise According to that, the right way to write this is "partitionwise join" (no dash), which means "join in respect of partitions", "join with regard to partitions". -- Álvaro Herrera https://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
