Some things change words describing them, based on location.

If I go to Home Depot and buy rope, it becomes line instead of rope, once it touches a boat.

My wife may shop for a hand bag, but it becomes her purse once purchased.

In scuba, I can deploy a lift bag (inflate and send to the surface), but it becomes a surface marker once it hits the surface and is no longer a lift bag.

The marker reverts back to a lift bag once removed from the water.

There you go.

Trying to think of something similar - best I can come up with is that a Guitar can become an Axe when the volume hits a certain level...

I am a richer man for knowing this.
