Is this saying that a term (word, phrase, acronym, abbreviation,  
whatever) can only have a single meaning?    (04)

What did I miss here?    (05)

As I have observed before & will undoubtedly observe again...    (06)

George Miller's "Ambiguous Words"   http://www.kurzweilai.net/ 
ambiguous-words    offers an average of 10 meanings per (real) word.    (07)

My dictionary of largely acronyms (but where's the line between  
acronym & real word... I don't have a clue) finds some 34 meanings  
per term/word.  Whittling that down to 1 meaning per term is going to  
be tough.    (08)
