Correction Of The Week.

From this morning's Times:

An article on Thursday about the latest generation to take over the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vt., misstated the religious background of the family matriarch, Maria von Trapp. She was a candidate for the novitiate at a Benedictine convent in Salzburg, Austria, before she become a governess for the children of Baron Georg von Trapp, whom she later married. She was not a nun.

But a novice ensconced in a convent was always referred to as a nun, though not a full-rank one.
