Rob Falconer, Llandough, Wales

BBC, did you really have to illustrate that article on changing language with the photograph of that *nasty* creepy-crawly object? Some of us here are arachnophobes, you know.
Danie Jones, Cambridge, England

Re this story: Professor Norman Pace? Are you serious?! Good to see him back in the public eye after languishing in obscurity for so long.
Robert Phillips, Auckland, NZ (formerly Cardiff, UK)
