Note that in portable devices the term "ground" is used in place of "common reference point" which may cause confusion since it may be inferred that a stake needs driving into the earth's crust - which is not necessary.
So most of us are guilty of 'overloading' the usage of the word 'ground',
It doesn't stop the confusion for beginners but at least we have a different word for it.
