I had a little fight about persons vs. people.
Could you advise if both of the following are correct, if possible with reference to a dictionary?
- A table for two people please.
- A table for two persons please.
Besides that, how would you ask for a table in a restaurant?
I also found the last paragraph of http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/person, which suggests that (1) is "more correct", but doesn't say (2) is wrong.
