I see your way of thinking now, if I post something with out documentation it's called BS. But if I post documentation you call the documentation BS and if it's a dictionary Well they just don't keep up with a fast changing language.<quoted text>Well done!
Your post explains something I had figured out long ago, once I learned about the science of semantics.
A dictionary can only reflect the opinions of it's creator(s), and will always lag behind the actual usage of a given language--unless the language in question is no longer in common use.
Thus, a dictionary is not so much an authority, as it is, "here is how many people use the various words".
One of my favorite examples, of words changing their meanings, is the word "cool". When I was a toddler, the word strictly referred to temperature, and nothing but temperature.
At some point during my childhood, a new additional meaning of the word "cool" came into common use-- it meant "trendy" or "acceptable to the crowd" or "something desirable to have and/or be" or even "above average".
But dictionaries published prior to roughly 1960 do not have those additional meanings. However, modern dictionaries do.
How about that?
So your word not document is more accurate then a quote out of a dictionary.
