In relation to your story it makes good semantical sense to say: 
"squareness can take degrees" (compare: "truth can take degrees"). Then 
of course the term 'squareness' ('truth') is no longer synonymous with 
the term 'absolute squareness' ('absolutely true'), but who would think 
so? It seems to me as if you have a wish to be able to put in jail uses 
of the term 'truth' that do not immediately conform to your ordinary use 
of this term.    (02)
