Linguistic Note on Generator of Hypocycloid

The term generator of a hypocycloid was invented by $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$.

As such, it is not generally expected to be seen in this context outside $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$.

The term generator circle can sometimes be seen used for what $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ refers to as the epicycle.
