There is a lot of overlap between everyday language and technical mechanical terminology. This can lead to a lot of confusion when talking about movement.
It is very common for coaches to use language incorrectly when talking about mechanics. For instance, I talked about the misuse of the term "power" in a separate thread.
To be clear, in this thread I am not criticising coaches for this. In many cases it is to a large part harmless - yes from a strict mechanical perspective the wrong word is being used, but coaches and athletes have a mutual understanding of what they mean.
