Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is not the Europeans, this is really Colman and Migeru, who have taken on the thankless task of reminding us that there are a number of words that we use without really thinking about it, and trying to make us explicit what we have in mind when we do use these words.

I personally think it is a worthwhile exercise. Their tone is not testy, just genuinely curious, i think - it's just that it's uqestions that seem so strange to us because we don't ever think about these things otherwise.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
