Words Mean Things

(Updated )

Words mean things.

Shouldn't be arguable, yet somehow...

If words didn't matter, then it wouldn't be called "tax relief" or a "death tax". If words didn't matter, you'd use the pronouns someone prefers. If words didn't matter, advertising wouldn't be a thing. Yet, in all those cases, someone has chosen the particular words they are using.

They're communicating something.

How someone frames an issue that they're speaking or writing about tells you a lot about what they are thinking, where they're coming from.
