Return to "daisy cutter" page.
As well a bombEdit
- By googling it one certainly gets many capitalized hits but are not they just a case of style? Anyway, both spellings seem common and logical. In the Wikipedia article appears uncapitalised. Here we find both spellings, the most common being with capitals, but, in the same page, we see that "The Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English" spells it as "daisy-cutter" (with hyphen and no capitalisation). Arundhati Roy, for example, writes "daisy cutter" in Listening to Grasshoppers. The BBC sometimes writes it in capitals   but often in lower cases  , , . In The New York Times both spellings appear as well. It seems that at least three different spellings are common and / or acceptable / reliable out there for the bomb: "Daisy Cutter", "daisy cutter" and "daisy-cutter".
