Recently, it has been brought to the attention of The SPASTIC Usage Dept. that certain words and phrases are being bandied about with reckless, um, ambandon (note to self: check root of "bandy" and "abandon". Connection?).
Just because the word sounds right, there's a chance you're a bit off.
Canonical does not concern things related to cannons.
It also does not mean having to do with cameras.
I hope this helps.
