I think that we can all agree that when we use a word, it means just what we choose it to mean neither more nor less.

Yes, tsuwm, but usually when we choose a word we choose to have it understood by whomever it is we are to speak, otherwise, why speak?

The salient question is: Where and how is a word physically stored in the brain where it waits unobtrusively for our request for retrieval?
