My lack of technical grammatical knowledge in English sure makes learning a
second language much more difficult - but never prevents me from having a
strong opinion on English grammatical matters!  I'll never agree with the
proposition that RENs (Recommended English Names) of birds not be
capitalised ... black falcon, little penguin, small minivet, green
junglefowl etc. - species names or just jaunty little descriptions?
