I have a question--
Is this a shelf?
Or is this a shelf?
And if you mean this… then do you say “a shelf from the shelf”?
Is it a ‘bookshelf’ if it has other things on it?
Sometimes there are more knic-knacs than books.
And sometimes there are no books at all!
What do you call it if it is a part of a piece of furniture?
Or if it hangs on a wall?
If it has doors, is it still a shelf?
Oh this is giving me a headache! I think I will just shelf this line of thought for another day!!
