Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am reminded of an article by Isaac Asimov which started with a joke on how to spot a[n english-speaking] Chemist. I believe there were three tests of which I remember two. The first one is to read unionize aloud. The Chemist will syllabicize it as un-ion-ize rather than union-ize.

The second test is to define mole which to a Chemist is not a blind furry burrowing animal, but Avogadro's number of particles.
