I'm not sure that 'canonical' is the best word choice here. I wonder if 'quintessential' would be better? I'm not expert in the English language, so I'd thought I'd ask about it first.Claude Bombarde 02:18, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Nope, 'canonical' is the best choice as it conveys the sense of being a standard, a measuring stick of accepted truth against which all else is compared. It is also the quintessential element but quintessential is only a representation of what something is all about. Simply not quite as strong a word. Tedward 10:00, 6 June 2007 (EDT)
Thank you. My knowledge of English and its use continues to expand.Claude Bombarde 23:53, 7 June 2007 (EDT)
