We think in words and phrases which evolve naturally through use.  The ones which become popular because they are particularly referential and generally applicable and catchy we call "cliches". 

& sum make up their own meanings.


Where you think meanings come from?   ... er, the ether?
Normally people make up a new word it the one already existing means something else.

Normally [if] people make up a new word [or phrase or cliche] [when] one already existed, [then the new one] means something else.


true ... or means something slightly different than the old one ... or is translated to a different cultural milieu from the one that already existed and hence is more easily grasped.   Like for example my use of "peculiar mind" which Joshua picked up on and now refereed to "peculiar territories" which prior to my coinage, apparently had not been used in that way.  Me, i call that communication.  Is it not kewl .

[sorry i had to edit your remark to comprehend it ... the way you wrote it was not immediately obviouse what you meant ... if my interpertation was wrong, than please correct].
Your edit just illustrates that we can't communicate because you use words to mean something else than the general dictionary meanings. I shall treat yours like rhyming slang - sort of like homonyms of convenience; sometimes used to dance out of the way of being specific or understood.

in other words you hold to your willful intent not to understand what i say.  fine then, that is what you do, and from my perspective just the way your ball bounces.
Still making up stories.  Your forceful bullshit that your definitions stand make it more that YOU are the one with the willful misunderstanding of the English language.




i THINK YOU WERE ACCURATE WHEN YOU USED THE PHRASE "IN OTHER WORDS"
