Thanks for your inputs. Yes, weever fish can refer to weaver fish. According to Wiki, weevers are sometimes erroneously called 'weaver fish', although the word is unrelated. Celtuce is also called stem lettuce, celery lettuce, asparagus lettuce, or Chinese lettuce. People mainly eat its stem. In Chinese, it is called 莴笋 (Wo Sun).

Lettuce usually refers to a leaf vegetable. It is usually used for salads. And you can find them eaten with sandwiches and hamburgers. In Chinese, it is usually called 生菜 (Sheng Cai).
