Yes, I remember sticking in a post somewhere on here encouraging people to work on the skill of grasping the overall thought or concept being expressed as opposed to picking on any particular words used. Any particular label is just another example of that.
If I simply can't grasp the general gist of what someone says because of the particular choice of words they use - I ask for clarification - sometimes by way of example. If I do grasp it - I could care less what terms they used. I got the picture.
It's a good skill to improve on - makes things flow along much smoother.
