Maybe it's a pondian thing.  I'm wondering why the expression "home-owner" (often not even hyphenated) seems to be the preferred term of at least some American posters.

What's wrong with "resident"? Why the stress on "owner"?

I just heard that in real estate jargon the term "master bedroom" is being replaced by "owner's bedroom" when describing a house.
