So awesome. At The Morning News, Giles Turnbull has gathered several families' names for various Lego parts into one fascinating chart. Fascinating, yet useless, of course, since your own lingo is probably different:
"Dad, I'm building a roof for the medical pod, but I need a hinge-y bit to make it open up. You know, one of those four-er flat hinge-y bits."A Common Nomenclature for Lego Families [themorningnews.org]
Raimi often builds spaceships but has never referred to the pieces by name, until prompted by his father--at which point he reveals that he possesses names for all of them in his head.Yes I do know. I'll keep my eye out for one, I say. And do you want this flat groovy piece to go on the top there, behind your lasers?
"Oh, thanks Dad."
