Lots of Sultanas from Li

Dear Word Spy,

Did you know that the wife of a Sultan is called a Sultana? I read it in "The Arabian Nights".

your friendly fan


Dear Li

Thank you for that. And I did some spying and I found out that it's not only the Sultan's wife who's called a Sultana, but also his mother, his sister, his daughter, his auntie...wow, that's a heap of sultanas!

I love "The Arabian Nights". I wonder which story you liked best?

from your pal by day and night,

The Word Spy
