@petebrown I agree. Our casual everyday language is full of turns of phrase that subtly alter our perception of the world. Here's one of my favourites: when people don't actually know the sex of a person or animal or bird etc and call it 'he’. “See that crocodile? He's big!” Yeah? Maybe she’s big! I now try to refer to all such unknowns as 'she’.
@Miraz I am all about context. Everything is in the intent. Which is why I was so pumped to finally figure out which language games philosopher I came across in Philosophy 101 that had been tearing pages out the draft of my internal monologue (I kept think he was an American named John but he was an Austrian named Ludwig). Its is also why I make up words willy nilly to suit my needs.
