That is incorrect. The word "polyamory" was coined for a specific purpose with a specific meaning. The roots used to form the word do mean "multiple" and "love" though that doesn't provide the specifc meaning attached to the term when it was coined.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
