1/What is #usage and how is it different #definition or #grammar?

In writing, "usage" has an important but limited meaning. I'll briefly describe "usage" & how it relates to, but is not the same as, "definition" or "grammar".
2/First, from the American Heritage Dictionary, a specific definitions to consider:

"3a: The way in which words or phrases are actually used, spoken, or written in a speech community."

Note that this is a description, not a prescription.
3/For some, usage is about what you 'should' do. For others, usage is a factual matter, & moral judgement of the 'good' is left to the reader's private thoughts and behavior.

I've called things "good usage" & "bad usage", but please remember: prescription in usage is opinion.

⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security

Because if communication is screwed,
1. Whatever skill he or she has
2. Whoever he/she is

The full potential is NOT utilized.

Dear @ashleymayer
Title to your article seem like clickbait because the not having a communication strategy is NOT okay, right ?
I may be wrong, though but anyway

Another Point to be considered is :

Science was a part of Philosophy in ancient times. Not anymore, people don't much about the connection.…

Tweetstorm coming up on the 9 distinguishing points of our thinking on #DataProtection ☔️ @dvararesearch @benichugh @julupani @binduananth 1/n
1. Scope —the law should apply to protect the personal data of all people in India, foreign entities conducting business in India + those outside India processing personal data from india. 2/n
2. Protect all personally identifiable data—do away with the distinction b/w “sensitive personal data” and “personal data”. Protect all personally identifiable data.This means the law will not apply to de-identified data; incentivising de-identification (as techniques evolve) 3/n
