    Oval is the name of ellipse for those who can't spell it, as far as I know. Again, nevermind.

      Ah thanks. I was so confused and googling it doesn't help.

        An oval is always an ellipse, but an ellipse is not always an oval. Ovals are referring to the shape of any ellipse that isn't a perfect circle, while an ellipse is describing both circles and ovals.

          Language difference, I'm used to think of those the same. Don't shake it too much.

            Thanks. This is a much better explanation.
