I love language. And since using reason I've got accustomed to some audio terminology. I like it best when it uses everyday words. My favourite is the use of dry/wet. You have to know the scale, that it's a measure of wetness. Dry is only 0% wet. Slightly wet isn't in the 2nd half of the rotary travel, it's very much at the beginning (thinking left to right).

My other fave is saturation. Which let's face it can be another word for wet.

I always wondered how native english speakers feel about that. Us germans we simply combine words and we have a new one or we simply use latin or greek words. But you keep reusing words for different things. I mean sure we have a few of those as well but theres so many in the english language. Like „beam“.

Hehe, it's true. Context can be very important in english which is why it's the best language for humour. Know what i mean? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge :puf_wink: :puf_wink:

take the words 'now' and 'here' - mash them and you get 'nowhere'.
