Podium has also come to mean . . .
"Podium has also come to mean the object a speaker stands behind and sets papers or books upon, even when it is at floor level". No it hasn't, though a lectern is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a podium by some people they are two completely different things. No dictionary I've checked describes a podium as a lectern. Can the phrase be reworded to show that the term is used incorrectly rather than podium has come to mean lectern please. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:19, 19 May 2009 (UTC) Swampy.
