Hello, nj.

So, in the communication exchange between 'you' and 'nj', the speaker and the listener demonstrate (among other things) how often times a given lexical item of American English can have associated with it, multiple logical types, each of which can be represented by a different lexical definition for the same term?  Ahhh...the sweet smell of confusion in the layered heterarchy of plausible meaning.  Thanks for the entertaining dramatization nj.
