So. I’ve just bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Sorry, cyclone cleaner. The instructions are mainly picture-based and easy to follow. Click this into that and that into this and get hoovering. Sorry, vacuuming. Sorry, cycloning. (Dysoning?)

Except – can anyone at Dyson tell me why they spell ‘click’ ‘clik’? Three times. In one diagram. What’s that all about? Is it Esperanto?
