Understand definitions come from different places;
- Blacks law – [indicated by “BL”] used in civil law, most legislation and used in most court papers, used by attorneys and lawyers. Often not the intuitive sense of a word.
- Common law – usually a regular dictionary like, Webster’s dictionary. Sometimes not written down, used in common everyday language, sometimes change with the times and usage of the people. Definitions may come from the Bible.
Alice in Wonderland
“I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory’,” Alice Said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “of course you don’t — till I tell you.
I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.
When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is, ” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master — is all.”
“Come, we shall have some fun now!” thought Alice.
“I’m glad they’ve begun asking riddles — I believe I can guess that,” she added aloud.
“Do you mean that you think you can find the answer to it?” said the March Hare.
“Exactly so,” said Alice.
“Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on.
“I do,” Alice hastily replied; “at least–at least I mean what I say–that’s the same thing, you know.”
“Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter.
“Why, you might just as well say that ‘I see what I eat’ is the same thing as ‘I eat what I see’!”
“You might just as well say, ” added the March Hare, “that ‘I like what I get’ is the same thing as ‘I get what I like’!”
“You might just as well say,” added the Dormouse, which seemed to be talking in its sleep, “that ‘I breathe when I sleep’ is the same thing as ‘I sleep when I breathe’!”
