Language both evolves, and is context specific.
I never denied the evolution of natural language and how it occurs. Once a word evolves through society, it becomes "official" when defined in a dictionary.
If I decide to call every gaming system an "xbox, Nintendo or playstation", then that's my prerogative. However, I can't sue you for the price of a "playstation 3" for anything other than a PlayStation3.
That's the difference. As stated, you can label anything you want in casual conversation, but you can't argue/define rules, laws and regulations by simply changing the definitions of words in order to support your argument.
That is utterly false. I'm not sure where you received that nonsense, but the point of a dictionary is to set the standard of the meaning of a word. Else, you are capable of making false definitions. How is one to validate a meaning if you can't use the dictionary as a constant?
What if the definition that you're giving isn't in the dictionary? Does it make it true? Who validates that?
Yes, anyone can make up new words, or new meanings for words. If they become common usage, then that validates the meaning. Usually dictionaries authors then add the word to their dictionaries. but this doesn't actually change anything.
Dictionaries are not written by gods. They are written by people. And as i've previously explained, no one has the authority to set meanings of a word, so a dictionary can certainly be wrong. And they absolutely fail to include words all the time. That doens't mean they aren't words, and have no meaning. It just means dictionaries aren't perfect (and only you expect them to be).
If you really believe the nonsense that you are spewing, then you have no objection to my definition of a man being a male who have had *** with 10 women or more.
Listen to Belkira. Avoid intelligence at all cost. Don't clog your current thinking with proper usage of words. Just think what people will think of you... using words correctly and all. What next? Proper grammar?
It's not avoiding intelligence.
I will give you credit for trying to better yourself, though. Eventually you'll learn context for your new vocabulary, keep working on it.
If you feel like that I'm protruding a "smarter than thou" image, then that is a personal problem. Unlike other posters on this forum, I realize that one's overall intelligence isn't defined by personal view points on subjective topics. I fully acknowledge the intelligence that posters have in various fields of study; however, I do openly ridicule the opinions presented.
Using verbs when required, maybe? "'What next?'" is only correct if it's rhetorical. If you follow it with something, it should be "'What's next?'" since you've articulated an answer.
According to you (along with others), I can make up my own grammar, because there are no standards.
