Mike,

***H:This is not a correct interpretation of my view. I am not saying that words acquire meaning by themselves. M: Earlier you wrote,"What I am saying is that words acquire meaning by standardizing definitions based on shared experiences. Do you disagree?" You had to use more words to explain it because that's not what you said the first time.***

The standardizing of definitions is a human effort. Words, by themselves, don't standardize their own definitions.

Warm regards, Harv
