Words  - Humpty Dumpty said a word means only what he wants it to mean.  Socrates, a great philosopher, said, just tell us what you want your word to mean.  And Voltaire, another great thinker, said, when we know what you mean by your words,  arguments and misunderstandings will seldom happen.  Consider poor Joe who liked alcohol.  Drank methanol rather than ethanol.  He then quickly learned, as his brain got burned, that words are important after all.  I know a person who said he could save any tree -along the driveway, in the barn, stacked next to the house, etc.   When they said, DR SHIGO could look at their black walnut trees, they did not know he meant on the inside.  People who call beautiful soil, dirt, and fertilizers plant food should have their mouth washed out with wound dressing.
