Re: NLA (no longer an acronym)?
I can't see an LED ever be called a "led"...this might be an exception.
The term is already saddled with other confusion. There is the noun, lead, element 82. There is the adjective and adjective-turned-noun lead, pronounced leed, and spelled lede by journalists (to avoid confusion with old 82, itself a major constituent of metal type). There is the verb lead, the simple past and past participle of which are led.
One can easily be misled by these words. Indeed when I was a youngster I made the incorrect distinction between the written word misled (which I pronounced myzzeld, somehow derived from miser), and the word I heard spoken, misslead or missled. (I was never sure which was correct, neither one of them being in my stupid dictionary.)
So LED is an ELL-EEE-DEE, now and forever more. I don't want to be miss-LED again.
