for some reason this pair popped into my head yesterday while driving home
and preparing to turn on my headl----s. i recalled that my grandfather
always called them "headlamps" rather than "headlights". is this
distinction regional or age-based or merely a usage peculiar to my
grandfather? DARE has an entry for "headlights" but not in this context.
