I love it, too, Byron. I always get the frozen concentrate version, and add water. It's a very satisfying beverage.

Treasure in search of the golden horse was released in 1984. The deadline to find the horse is past. Still cool film. The actress that stars in it is a very good friend.

Hi Word Experts (English, American English, Svenska, Norske, Dansk and/och/ock/und Deutsch),

My question is not about a word on the Word Link forum, but it still is a word related question.

Q: What is called a person who is specialized in/has studied in university teaching children with special needs? I need a name like an engineer or a nurse (a status, educational degree, profession or a vocation). Example: Am I "a teacher of mathematics" or "a mathematics teacher"?

I guess it is not a "special teacher" as it is in Finnish (one word erityisopettaja, the 'opettaja' being a teacher and the prefix 'erityis' meaning special). To my ear "a special teacher" would make the teacher have some special qualities/skills (which they do admittedly have). But -- It is the children who need something more, especially suited for their individual education. So what is their teacher called?

Please not to pollute this thread as I did -- just PM (unless you feel that it needs public discussion. In that case please notify me in PM).

Alpha ---> Beta ---> Lucky's

Alpha Beta, Albertson's and Lucky's are Supermarkets all owned by one Parent Company.

(I think there are even more store names under the Parent Company, just can't think of them right now.)

Thanks Carlos! 😀 The Alpha Beta stores were all closed after the merger with Lucky's. I forgot Pak 'n Save, Jewel-Osco, Safeway, and Vons. I didn't know about the others....
