    In your third paragraph you use the word ‘straight’. The correct word would be ‘strait’. Strait means a narrow channel joining two larger bodies of water.

    The main problem is that gulf, sea, and bay are used so interchangeably that they really have no true meaning. Virtually any indentation in the shape of a continent is labeled a “gulf”, a sea is generally a landlocked saltwater lake except when it’s the Caribbean Sea or the Sargasso Sea (aka the Atlantic Ocean) or any of the seas surrounding Australia. Supposedly a bay is smaller than a gulf, except we have the enormous Hudson Bay and the little Persian Gulf. This isn’t a criticism of this article, it’s really a criticism of the sloppiness that is language.
