Discussion of "miltretrebinbo'a"

(4) It should be noted that the usage of this proposed word (or any of its
kin [a'o]) is definitely not as would an English layperson would expect.
It is malglico to say that dinner was cooked in a microwave, (except in a
very pedantic and not-very-layperson fashion). "Microwave oven" should be
used in such a context, wherein the (microwave) radiation could be
specified.

(5) I would just like to note that most contexts probably default to
understanding "microwaves" to be electromagnetic, but as far as these
definitions go, such interpretations would be wrong (malglico and/or
malklu). Any wave that has a wavelength on the order of certain lengths
would be considered to be microwave- even if it is a water wave or a
gravitational wave, or any other wave for that matter. A note stating
such usage would be nice (I recommend).
