"The Goof Was Calling Mathematics A Language "

Luis,

"1 + 1 = 2"

"one plus one equals two"

So long as my usage of a word is consistent, I'm free to call things anyway I want. So rather than call math "a language", I'll call it "a poopoolet" (my daughter came up with that word yesterday)

Are you ready to say I have no right to call math "a poopoolet"?

Your mistake is to assume you understand what I mean by "a language" anymore than you understand what I mean by "a poopopolet". I thought you understood that issue very well, considering you wrote this post:

What made you forget your own point? I said Dick understands this issue very well, but apparently you understand it even better. Why not build on it rather than just take advantage of misunderstanding to mock other people? (not that I'm not guilty of that myself...)

Sincerely,

Aurino
