“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—that’s all.”

—Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking Glass
