In [3]: help(zip)

class zip(object)
 |  zip(*iterables) --> zip object
 |  
 |  Return a zip object whose .__next__() method returns a tuple where
 |  the i-th element comes from the i-th iterable argument.  The .__next__()
 |  method continues until the shortest iterable in the argument sequence
 |  is exhausted and then it raises StopIteration.

This description is awkward and should use term 'iterator' as https://docs.python.org/3/library/functions.html#zip does.

The same applies to chain(), count() and zip_longest() from itertools.
