Talk:killer whale

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

A category similar to Category:English words affected by prescriptivism and Category:Disputed usage would be useful for this term. As such categories are unexpectedly controversial, I'm not categorising just yet. — Hippietrail 04:20, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

This was listed also as a misnomer, which I don’t understand.
There is clearly some controversy over the name of these creatures, but “killer whale”, while pejorative, is not inaccurate.
