Language Knowledge Issue Poster

Knowledge Issue:

How do the following affect our understanding and perception of language: emotionally-laden language, weasel words, grammar, and revealing/concealing?

Revealing and Concealing

The idea that, for example, when an individual introduces a friend of his or her to another friend or acquaintance as "athletic" to an athletic friend, "bisexual" to another bisexual friend, or "artistic" to an artistic friend. Basically, this example provides a representation of what is revealed and concealed when talking to different characters depending on skill set or interests, not the fullness of the individual being divulged to the other person.
