For a "definitive" answer to how your Mathematica expressions might be 
read, if you're using Windows or OS X (and perhaps other platforms), and 
if you have sound, evaluate:

   Speak[Unevaluated[list /. x_ :> SuperStar[x] /; x > 9]]

If you don't have sound, evaluate:

   SpokenString[Unevaluated[list /. x_ :> SuperStar[x] /; x > 9]]

Of course the results may not be -- and here, surely, are not -- optimal 
for understanding. E.g., the "/." is read as "slash dot". At least the 
end of the expression is read intelligently by Mathematica as "with 
condition x is greater than 9."
