Hazelnut bushes/wood misnamed

Recommended Posts

This is minor, but it's been bugging me for a while.


In English, the bush is called a "hazel bush" and the wood is called "hazelwood". Only the nut itself is called a "hazelnut". "Hazelnut bush" and "hazelnutwood" are incorrect, with "hazelnutwood" sounding especially awkward.


So "hazelnut bush" should become "hazel bush" and "hazelnutwood" should become "hazelwood".
