From MSDN, where else:

An async method provides a convenient way to do potentially long-running work without blocking the caller's thread. The caller (say, M1) of an async method can resume its work without waiting for the async method to finish. However, M1 typically uses the await keyword so that it returns immediately, allowing M1’s caller to resume work or return to the thread’s synchronization context (or message pump).

Does anyone else read that, in the second sentence, the caller is called "M1", but then in the third and fourth sentences, M1 is the "callee"?
