It's consistent, kinda. The problem comes when describing: "cp foo bar" translates as "copy _foo_ to _bar_" okay, but the obvious translation of "ln foo bar" to "link _foo_ to _bar_" doesn't; the latter seems to say _bar_ is the original, at least to my taste. You have to process it as "create a link to _foo_ named _bar_". Or just memorize it. :-)
