I'm happy for those who can read other languages besides English, but I 
must be in a minority, only being fluent in Texan and Arkansan dialects. 
I also know a bit of Aussie and British English, but that's about as far 
as I can take it.

Texan translation: I don't know 'bout you little missy, but Texan is the 
real a ling... aw, I say ling... aw, common shared  language.
Arkansan translation: If you ain't an Arkie, you ain't no-buddy!
Aussie translation: Yeh, royt!
British English: There is only one proper language, and that, my dear, 
is the Queen's English. Tutt tutt and ta ta!

I would say, until God reintroduces a pure language (Zephaniah 3:9), 
everybody feel totally free to write as you are comfortable writing 
about bulbs, and those who understand can reply in a way they are most 
comfortable replying. ;-)
