Well, that is a moot point. Does TeX include LaTeX ? I would
argue not. If someone says "How do I achieve X in TeX", I think
it is reasonable to assume that he or she means TeX, and not
LaTeX; if, on the other hand, they were to ask "How do I achieve
X in LaTeX", then clearly LaTeX is the Universe of Discourse
and not TeX.

In books on linguistics (such as Quirk), <Am.E> and <Br.E> are
regularly recurring terms.
