The Words Are Much Alike

Flammable, not flammable, uninflammable, inflammable. The words can be confusing. Stay back from the truck.

Take a recent correction posted in the WSJ about something in their story about people using hyperbaric oxygen chambers for as yet unapproved treatment plans for autism and brain injuries. The correction reads:

Pressurized oxygen increases the risk of combustion. A Personal Journal article Tuesday about oxygen treatments incorrectly said oxygen under high pressure is flammable.

Okay, whatever you say.
I'll stand back just in case.
