As has been noted, most people don't know the differences in areas that we find dear to us.

I see people around all the time that ask me how the banjo playing is going. I don't play a banjo. I play mandolin and guitar. The mandolin has 8 strings, the banjo has 4 or 5. They are tuned different, are played differently, and make tremedously different kinds of sounds. They don't even look the same. But most people recognize guitars, then "everything else with strings."

Don't take it personally as a magician. Or illusionist. Or mentalist. Smile

Is the product music? Are they a musician?

Is the product a story? Are they an actor?

Is the product a display of juggling? Are they a juggler?

Is the product a performance? Are they a performance artist?

I apologies. I should have mentioned that I use the term conjoureer for the general practitioner, and illusionist for the larger, stage stuff, with animals, etc etc etc. I in now way resent other uses of any of these by anyone. I'm not a stickler.


Ok, sorry, I was in a giant hurry when I typed that in. I do a little posting while my wife gets ready for work and I think that on may have been about midway done when she said "OK, I'm ready to go."

While some may say you should wait for a better time to type a thoughtful and grammatically correct post, I'm with ya! Go ahead and blame the wife. Heck, they blame us for everything else don't they? Cheers!

Between "conjurer" and "conjuror," currently "conjurer" is the preferred spelling, although I personally prefer the second spelling. "Conjuror" also has a secondary meaning of co-conspirator, according to Webster's Second. The OED gives this secondary meaning to both spellings.
