    We like them. I mean those who like chess enough.

    What are they? The semantics. No looking first.

    Actually, that'd be a semantic, singular, rather than semantics.

    I'm not sure if I'm ignorant or apathetic but I don't know and I don't care, semantics aside.

    If we go for the semiotics we have:

    The nice Change from wezir to Queen. (probably due to medevial thoughts on romantics.

    The Change from elephant to rook to Castle (in German Turm: Tower)

    There is a nice socail comment to have a White and a black Bishop (when you take into account European meaning of black and White ion regard to Religion, for japanese e.g. this is different).

    Surely sir that is being pedantic rather than semantic?
