  The Word Detective
Sadly, I must report that our dear friend Sparky, who has appeared in many of my columns in the past eight years, has left us.
Dear Word Detective: I’ve pondered the question and I’ve done a little research on the internet only to find conflicting opinions on the subject.
So I write to you, the master, to give me an answer to the question.

  Detective - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A detective is an investigator, either a member of a police agency or a private person.
In the British police, "Detective" is used as a prefix before all ranks in the Criminal Investigation Department and Special Branch from Constable to Chief Superintendent.
A detective may lie or otherwise mislead and may psychologically pressure a suspect into confessing, though in the United States suspects may invoke their Miranda rights.

 Detective fiction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Detective fiction is a branch of crime fiction that centers upon the investigation of a crime, usually murder, by a detective, either professional or amateur.
The detective novel must have a detective in it; and a detective is not a detective unless he detects.
The Detective: This is almost axiomatic--one must have a detective who is distinctively defined, preferably a series detective (which saves having to create a new one for each book--easier that way both for the writer and the reader and engenders a familiarity that ensures comfort and a market for new books).

 Detective-Mystery Films
The plot often centers on the deductive ability, prowess, confidence, or diligence of the detective as he/she attempts to unravel the crime or situation by piecing together clues and circumstances, seeking evidence, interrogating witnesses, and tracking down a criminal.
The detective studies the intriguing reasons and events leading to the crime, and eventually determines the identity of the villain (a murderer, a master spy, an arch fiend, an unseen evil, or a malignant psychological force).
If detection and the solution to a crime are not central to a 'mystery' film, then it blends into other genre film types, such as horror or suspense-thrillers.

 Issue of August 12, 2003
Dear Word Detective: The phrase "pear shaped" meaning "everything is going to hell" is used by some pommy (English) friends of mine -- and one offered a suggestion that it has to do with not being able to turn a smooth circle whilst doing aerobatic maneuvers.
Dear Word Detective: Yesterday I referred to someone as a "scissorbill." The friend to whom I was speaking asked what the term meant and I explained that I had always understood it to mean a person who really is labor and whose true interests lie with labor but who identifies himself with management.
It was this slang meaning of "idiot," and not a reference to the bird itself, that apparently led to "scissorbill" becoming union organizers' slang for a worker deemed excessively fond of management.
