Re: What is Aiki? Introduction to a method of analyzing Aiki. (Part 3)

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

---Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll

Crane, date, page, engaged, foil, leaves, net, point, right, rose, type, hip, run, hop, just to name a few. Multiple meanings for words is pretty common, in English anyway. So I guess the answer to Alice's question is yes. The meanings of many words will evolve with time and usage.
