Today there is a fairly long python-list thread about the difficult of finding info on 'dict comprehensions' in the doc.  Point 1 is missing index entries.  I opened #29981 for this.  Point 2 is something I have also noticed: the obscurity of 'Atoms' and 'Primaries' as titles of sections in the Expressions chapter.  These are fairly esoteric Computer Science language theory terms.  Compare these to beginner-friendly 'Binary arithmetic operators' and 'Comparisons'.

My specific suggestions, subject to change:

Atoms, including identifiers, literals, displays, and comprehensions
Primaries: attributes, subscripts, slices, and calls
Date User Action Args
