It seems that the writer of a rebuttal to my commentary comparing the accepted dictionary descriptions of the root word social and it’s 11 definitions does not fully understand the intent of my writing. Perhaps I could clarify my subject a little further. My attempt now is to describe how two unrelated words, when combined, will create a third definition.
I would ask the writer if he might be aware of, or attended a church ice cream social. Let’s examine “ice cream.”
It is recognizable that each of these words carry a distinct individual identification, but in combination describe a third entity.
And so it is similar with a socialism word reference, is it your intention to reference public socialistic groups or socialistic government?
These are very different subjects of conversation and require one of the descriptive words as a prefix for clarification
