Ah, ha!    (04)

Ye olde context bit.    (05)

What would be the benefit of this (mythical/theoretical?) digital  
ontology?    (06)

I'm having great difficulty getting my noodle around this "one term =  
one meaning" concept.    (07)

Given that humans are so accustomed (not that they consciously  
acknowledge it, they just DO it) to having multiple meanings per  
term, how do you envision a proper digital ontology being applied?    (08)
