This is What the Damn Word Means!!!!!
I confess I'm sick of every forum, music review, bio, and comment using the following words like you know what they mean, when you have no clue.
–noun, plural -nies. 1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
–adjective 1. selecting or choosing from various sources.
2. made up of what is selected from different sources.
3. not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems.
Read these well kids, and use them the right way, you bunch of illiterate idiots.
