(23:26:35) kesuari: "Use boldface for certain forms in Oscan and Umbrian, and to distinguish Gaulish and other forms originally written in the Greek alphabet." i don't suppose you have any idea why?

...

(23:30:58) kesuari: (actually, that's pretty ironic: using bold instead of italics for italic languages like oscan and umbrian)

(12:16:42) kesuari: literal definition often means "in accordance with, involving, or being the primary or strict meaning of the word or words; not figurative or metaphorical"

(12:17:01) [me]: fair enough

(12:17:07) [me]: people certainly use it that way

(12:17:49) kesuari: that's the first definition on dictionary.com ;)

(12:18:25) [me]: yeah, I guessed you'd pulled it from a dictionary

(12:18:44) kesuari: well, i was pointing out it's the *first* definition

(12:18:52) kesuari: i.e. the primary one

(12:20:08) [me]: dictionaries don't always know which to put first

(12:20:37) kesuari: in the case of "literal" i think they got it right

(12:20:49) kesuari: people don't use it to mean its literal definition i.e. "of letters" very often

(12:21:03) kesuari: (oh noes! i've used "literal" with a different definition!)

(12:22:46) [me]: you're just trying to be meta and ironic to get on my quotes page

(12:23:01) [me]: *to get more on my quotes page

(12:23:06) [me]: you dominate it anyway these days

(12:23:27) kesuari: lol no, i was just trying to be ironic because irony is funny

(12:23:40) kesuari: if that gets me on your quotes page, well then, i can use that in my plot to take over the world

(12:23:49) kesuari: and if it doesn't, well, it's not a vital step anyway

...

(12:25:40) kesuari: actually, that could be more a difference of the implications of "primary" anyway. so maybe i was using "literal" with its literal meaning, but "literal" and "primary" are both thankfully ambiguous in the same way?

(12:25:43) kesuari: i am confused.
