From Mr Robert Allen

Sir: Of course, afraid in the dark is different from/than/to afraid of the dark (Lord Quirk's letter, 15 February). That was rather the point.

However, is the ordering of his words neutrally alphabetical or is it offered as a solution, a prepojunction one might say?

Yours faithfully,

Robert Allen
