I understood that part. Are you assuming I did not understand that part?surreptitious57 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 17, 2019 3:34 pmYes he was asking you to explain why you answered yes to the question that he asked -Age wrote:

If yes then it helps if you say what you actually mean
There was, however, another part, which I obviously did not understand. I misinterpreted that part of what was wanted.
But they could have been asking me some thing else.
The proof of this can be clearly seen in my WRONG assumption, which I clearly made.
Considering the original question involved the words "synonyms", and behind my yes answer, which does not involve the "synonyms" word at all, then saying "explain why, no synonyms" can AND did get misunderstood as some thing else. Therefore, what was being asked could be some thing else.
If it could not be any thing else, then obviously it could not be mistaken, misinterpreted, not misunderstood.
What was said was mistaken, misinterpreted, and/or misunderstood. Therefore, they could have been asking me some thing else.
Therefore, because I assumed otherwise, it was NOT perfectly clear to anyone, unless of course 'i' am not anyone.
By the way, if you are open enough for an explanation of why it was not perfectly clear to me, then the original question is;
Would philosophy exist if the words:
And their synonyms could not be applied?
Now, my response is;
To me, the answer is yes.
The reply back is;
Good, explain why, no synonyms.
To wit, I thought/asumed was meaning; That is good you disagree with me, so now try and explain why you say that philosophy can exist if those words and no synonyms existed.
Considering WHY I said yes, some might say that that was a pretty simple mistake to make.
Now, when, and if, eodnhoj7 answers my question; were you asking me to explain why I answered yes to your original question, and to give my explanation with no synonyms attached? with the affirmative, then I will explain WHY I said 'To me, my answer is yes'.
Then, you might see and understand HOW I mistook, misinterpreted, or misunderstood some thing.
