I think the discussion on different terms is important for us as
techwhirlers. It shows that it can be downright dangerous to assume that
American English, UK English, Australian English etc are the same. If I
have the potential to cause a life threatening situation because I use a
term that the audience doesn't know, I am not doing my job well. I think
it is a very common misconception that all English is the same. A fume
hood or whatever has the potential to be life threatening, it does matter
how you refer to it.
