“The Relationship Between Language and Thinking”

It seems obvious that our words should reflect our thinking, but much of the time it doesn’t work out well. Think of two examples from your life or something you have read that show this. Describe them and explain how each illustrates one of the concepts from this week’s chapter, such as a misunderstanding of intent, vagueness, multiple meanings, euphemism, etc. (You can pick any two concepts from the chapter.) Finally, tell us if this has made you think more about how you express yourself in words.
