This appears to be an "external" article (Wikipedia import) without substantial change.Pat Palmer 23:54, 6 April 2007 (CDT)

Pat, just for the record, that may have been true in 2007, but the article is now very much different than the one in WP. Milton Beychok 17:07, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Changed the word "collocations" to "connotations"

Ro, the word "collocations" may be correct but it is a word I had never seen before ... and I am sure that would be true of many readers. That is why I changed it to "connotations" which is a much more common word.

Although I made no change in your use of "vapor/vapour", I really see no reason for including the British variant as well as the American variant.. The article also includes the American variant "vaporization" without including the British variant "vapourisation". Both vapor and vaporization are used in a great many CZ articles without adding the British variants. After all, the metadata template allows us to specify what variant of English an article uses.

OK, as you see it. I'd be inclined to footnote the British spelling though, for completeness. Ro Thorpe 17:43, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
