comment Using the word “quota” in plural and singular
To explain further, it's not clear to me whether "quotum" would perhaps refer to a single unit of quota and not a complete allocation. e.g. a single minute if the allocated quota is time, or a square meter if the allocation is space.

comment Using the word “quota” in plural and singular
@medica Neither the concise OED (app) nor the online Merriam-Webster list "quotum". Wiktionary gives it as a plural of "quota", but the definition leaves me wondering if it's what I'm after, "A part or proportion; a fraction".

comment Is there a word to refer to “changing TV channels”?
@Tristan I'm also British and "zapping" is the first word that came to my mind. I don't remember exactly where I first heard zap used in this context, but it was almost certainly on British television. I moved from England about 15 years ago, so it may have fallen out of use.
