Letter to the Editor - Thursday, May 8: Language warning

AS Australians we say "aeroplane" not "airplane", "lift" not "elevator". It therefore surprises me that the article 10 High-flying Machines in DEX (29/4) was obviously just lifted from an American web source without checking for correct spelling for our shores.

What little is left for Australians to call their own let's try hard to keep.

Let Americans go on airplanes and I'll go on an aeroplane.

Celeste Warren,
