"I'm always confused about adjectives like 'electric' and 'electrical', 'electronic' and 'electronical'. So my question is how you distinguish adjectives that end with 'ic' and 'ical'?"

Wang Ying from Ningbo

Do we say 'an electric guitar' or 'an electrical guitar'?

Is it 'an electric light bulb' or 'or an electrical light bulb'? Do people nowadays send 'electronic mails' or 'electrical mails'?

In this Question and Answer of the Week, Feifei and Neil explain how to distinguish 'electric' and 'electronic' and the usage of the word 'electronic'.
