59. My specialty coaching college debate was topicality
Why do you think that common usage is the best standard for accepting a definition and why would a general dictionary which reflects no specialty is the best resource for deciding what words mean? Sure they can give you a general understanding of how a random Joe tosses a word around and can help you out when you don't know the meaning of a word while reading a novel, but why is that even remotely a good standard for a discussion in a theological forum?
