"I'm always confused about adjectives like 'electric' and 'electrical', 'electronic' and 'electronical'. So my question is how you distinguish adjectives that end with 'ic' and 'ical'?"

Wang Ying from Ningbo

Do we say 'an electric guitar' or 'an electrical guitar'?

Is it 'an electric light bulb' or 'or an electrical light bulb'? Do people nowadays send 'electronic mails' or 'electrical mails'?
