Language is really interesting - and important. Communication is enhanced by the use of words and phrases used to verbally describe mental pictures for us. In this way, we can "see" what others are saying. Sometimes the same word picture is used in different contexts. But, because we're familiar with its usage, it's not confusing.
Englishman John Abbott was nuts about bugs. As a child, his parents noticed that wherever he went, he wanted to catch and then draw the biggest and the most unusual insects, no matter what kind.
