By the way, the plural of escapee is escapees, DEFINATELY NOT escapee's (which only makes sense followed by a noun, to mean some
property of the escapee). Also by usual grammar, one who escapes should
be called an escaper (even if that word is not generally used). The
escapee is the one to whom an escape occurs, that is the prior owner.
If the bird is released, the bird is a
releasee and the person releasing it is a releaser.
Thanks Philip, for your usual interesting discourse on
this forum, one LITTLE bone to point out though. Whilst on the
subject of grammar & YOU are making a point here, shouldn't one
say 'DEFINITELY NOT' escapees. Cheers, not trying to be boring -
