as objects fall, so words go together to make what sense they can.

Ooh, he just made a gravitational argument of why two words can be different. heart emoticon this. “with respect to every other same word in the corpus, taken pair-wise”. In short, in each usage of a word, EVERY POSSIBLE SENSE is considered and neatly falls into place naturally… exceptions being poets, puns, and people that play with words, who have fun with this phenomenon for affect. grin emoticon

“In brief, when a word recurs, it either differentiates or not with
respect to every other same word in the corpus, taken pair-wise. If it
does, it differentiates merely equivocally or analogously. If analo-
gously, either metaphorically or non-metaphorically. If metaphor-
ically, either figuratively or non-figuratively. And if in any way,
either denominatively or non-denominatively. Thus the speaker
does not have to know the laws of differentiation because, whether
or not he knows them, his words obey them: as objects fall, so
words go together to make what sense they can.”
