This compilation is a summary of my book Bamboo-file. It is compiled to help you find your way about in the tangle of varying synonyms. It does not pretend to lay down scientifically which synonyms are correct an which are not. If a synonym is mentioned in any book or magazine known to me it is included here.

Undoubtedly, false synonyms will have crept in. If you should discover any, and can underpin your arguments, please pass it on to me and it will be amended in a subsequent issue.

The same hold goods for the spelling of the names. These have been literally copied from the books and magazines consulted. If you come across any more, I would be very grateful for that information as well.

Any remarks or suggestions on how to improve the present compilation will be very welcome.
