Posted in Rails exceptions from reserved keywords

I keep bumping into exception errors that I believe are due to conflicts from reserved keywords.

For example, I have a permit model with the attribute "gross_value." When my view tries to retrieve @permit.gross_value I get the following exception error. However, when I rename the attribute to @permit.value_gross (without changing anything else) the view works fine. I've had similar issues with other attribute names.

Is my diagnosis of the reason for the exception correct? How do I know what keywords to avoid this issue?
