    ...and of course in NZ, the moon is upside down, too.....
    
    I thought all sailing Brits knew that the Plough is regarded as merely a
    kind of saucepan in the US - and now we have to face it that (even into
    the furthest reaches of space, and therefore in a sense retrospectively)
    they may have remembered Shakespearean verbs (gotten, etc), but whenever
    their vocabulary supercedes  (sorry, Bill - supersedes) the British
    original we must cede victory to them.
    
    But before we do, please would some linguists answer George's question -
    what names do continental Europeans use?
