IT IS PERHAPS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT MORE OFTEN THEN NOT THIS IDEA IS ONLY VAGUE, SO VAGUE EVEN THAT IT COULD BE FAKE ONLY.

THE SIMPLEST WAY TO GET AN IDEA OF THE MEANING OF A WORD IS TO LOOK IT UP IN A DICTIONARY, ALWAYS BEARING IN MIND THAT THE WORDS IN THE DICTIONARY COULD BE VAGUE OR FAKE.

TO GET A MORE SOPHISTICATED IDEA OF THE MEANING OF WORDS WE MUST USE MORE SOPHISTICATED METHODS . . . AND RISK THAT ALL WE LEARN IS THAT MOST OF THE TIME WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT . . .

(FORTUNATELY MOST OF US DON’T KNOW THE MEANING OF THE WORD KNOW . . . ).

IN THIS WEBSITE CONSIDERABLE ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO

EXPLORING THE MEANING OF WORDS .

NOW IT BEGINS . . .
