what is a definition. Definitions is ASSIGNING to something some symbol or word. So, can't be incorrect.

PEOPLE can be wrong by assigning SAME symbol to mutually exclusive phenomena (say, SAME symbol for the moon of Pluto as for the moon of Earth.

Math can't be wrong. People can. This is the MAIN problem in this forum and in understanding mathematical Nature.
