Hello,
I would say to somebody else:

"Replace all patterns with given name x and which turn out to be numbers greater than 9 by their "superstared" values."
or:
"Mark all numbers in expression list which are greater than 9 by a superstar."
> list /. {i_ /; i>= 10 :> SuperStar[i]}
"Replace all patterns with name i and which are numbers greater equal than 10 by their superstared values."
Alternatively you could also try
Speak[HoldForm[list /. x_ :> SuperStar[x] /; x > 9]]
Best,
Christoph
