Re: [APD] One bulb on a two bulb ballast
Bulb manufacturers seem to refer to bulbs as lamps --
handily glossing over any issues of shape implied in the
noun. However, we common folk tend to call "lamps" the
things into which we put bulbs -- such as desk lamps and
table lamps but tend to side with the manufacturers when it
comes to headlamps. What some of us call "lamos" other
folks call "light fixtures." My Aunt Mary was a light
fixture -- she'd hang around the house all day but only
during a few weeks in summer.
