You all remember my "potential vs. possibility" argument with AH over on D+E. Sometimes there's just no word to describe certain concepts. And I didn't want to say "has begun a process that will with high probability lead to" half a dozen times per post.

If one examines the semanticist paradigm of context, one is faced with a choice: either reject textual submodern theory or conclude that langauge is capable of significance. Thus, the subject is contextualised into a `powerful communication' that includes narrativity as a paradox. I promotes the use of textual submodern theory to deconstruct thecommon stereotype of misused semnatics...

Well, the point behind arguing semantics (at least when I do it) is to avoid miscommunication. I like to know exactly what people are trying to tell me, and having what I say misunderstood isn't exactly the most constructive thing either.
