Usage notes[edit]

Certain authorities including Umberto Eco, semiotician and author, insist that topo does not differentiate between “mouse” and “rat”:

Here topo is ambiguous — it refers to the impression somebody has when a mouse or rat comes along, that is when somebody panics because of seeing the animal.
