    Blurry Words

    What are some words that you almost understand, but not quite (maybe because the words seem paradoxical or overused)?


    Three words that confuse me:
    faith
    creativity
    map (especially as a verb)

    You could research the words you think of and then post what you find out about them.

    Inflammable
    --definition: flammable

    I'm not confused by it, per se, rather the need for the word itself...

    The blueballs were especially excruciating-- worse than being semifellated.

    - Strident

    - Ill-conceived (In my mind this always precedes "notions" which gives me an oxymoron kind of feel)
    Don't remember changing this.
