just because you can recognise the characters, doesn't mean you know what they mean.
Apparently Chinese characters, much like other words in a natural language, depend
on the way they are used to disambiguate their meaning.

Perhaps we should be discussing that issue:

ie: what methods exist to disambiguate the meaning of a word or phrase, so that it can be precisely (enough for a purpose) axiomatised?
