Don't make me laugh. "Empirical research!" :roll: If you were interested in empiricism, there wouldn't be so many threads where you argue with people about the origin of the universe. :nono:

It seems that you're confusing me with another person. I've never argued with people about the origin of the universe.


Oooops! You're right. I apologise. My mistake. :thumbup:

OK. I want to clarify that I didn't want you to "go away" from the thread that I started. I think that your answers have been unnecessarily hostile, and that you were not understanding my question (which was not "how Wiki or OED define these words", but "how linguists use these words nowadays", specifically in several more complex cases). This is the reason why my question was addressed to linguists.
