There are many ways of interpreting what is before you. But what is the right way to interpret a question or even a word? This, of course, depends on the persons frame of reference, age, experiences, context and so on. We, our society, have created a language system to understand each other and the world among us. This system is created by and for the people. But what if this system is a really complicated fiction in itself? This language system changes constantly, how can language be defined if all words can have multiple meanings and mean something different to every person?
