I'm guilty of using 'a ternary operator' more than once.
In my defense it happens because when we have a couple of appearances of the ternary operator in an algorithm and then I want the other person to add another, I think it is more practical to say "add a ternary over there" instead of "add the ternary operator" because it could happen that the other person things I'm referring to a previous one.

I think that is correct English when used this way. Because you could also say "add a conditional operator over there".

Maybe someone with an English degree can explaining these rules :)
