Why bother arguing about what ‘dressed up’ means? Especially in this case. Frieda is pushing for the narrow modulation because she is looking for a face-saving way out of the social embarrassment of being overdressed. Kathy is happy to accommodate her, although in other circumstances where being dressed up was called for she would presumably insist that Frieda was dressed up. No one is explicitly talking about word definitions in the conversation, but they definitely have modulated the meaning of ‘dressed up’.

Each firefly contains an oscillator, a little metronome, whose timing adjusts automatically in response to the flashes of others. That’s it. Strogatz goes on to argue that the phenomenon is quite widespread in nature and, because it is driven by low-level mathematical and physical properties, the synchronization is inevitable if the initial conditions are right. ” But what about lexical synchronization? Presumably, the talk of lexical entrainment is metaphorical because we don’t think about meanings oscillating (although it would be interesting to try and make sense of the idea of meanings oscillating between alternatives in a semantic space of some form).

This precipitated the attempt to modulate the meaning of the term ‘planet’. The modulation of the meaning was justified by an argument to the effect that, if Pluto is recognized as in the range of ‘planet’ then many other objects must be as well, and involved an attempt to screen out objects that were large enough to be round, but still sitting in the Kuiper Belt. The resulting modulation added some sharpness (at least in the context of the current state of our solar system) but it was still not completely precise, as noted by Tyson (2009: 118).
