Equivocation ("to call by the same name") is classified as an informal logical fallacy . It is the misleading use of a term with more than one meaning or sense (by glossing over which meaning is intended at a particular time). It generally occurs with polysemic words (words with multiple meanings). It is often confused with amphibology (amphiboly) (ambiguous sentences.); however, equivocation is ambiguity arising from the misleading use of a word and amphiboly is ambiguity arising from the misleading use of punctuation or syntax.

From Caroline: I know fork is such a commonly used word, but it is so weird. If you say it a lot, it's actually a really funny word. I was wondering where this word originated. Yes, we are quite familiar with the phenomenon where a word starts to sound strange if it is uttered over and over. Bizarre that, eh?

SPRINGFIELD, MASS., August 14, 2012 — Merriam-Webster has released its list of new words being added to the 2012 update of Merriam Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary , and the list provides a revealing look at American culture. Words from cutting-edge science ( copernicium , a new chemical element) and pop culture ( man cave ) and words elevated by foodies ( gastropub ) are among the latest additions to America's best-selling dictionary, available now in print and online at Merriam-Webster.com. "Some of the new words this year provide colorful images," says Merriam-Webster Editor at Large Peter Sokolowski.
It has come to our attention that there is a new habit we have been speedily, decadently embracing with regard to our words. A portmanteau , of course, is a large suitcase, or, alternatively, via Merriam-Webster, "a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms." Examples include smog , a combination of smoke and fog, or chillax , from chill and relax . Emoticon , for instance, is a portmanteau of emotion and icon . Or consider these: Skort, craptastic, spork, frenemy, gaydar, meme-ories, jeggings, feminazi , brunch, and even motel .
T-Bone & Yasu: The Unlikely Duo The trailer for a short documentary about Taiwan-based duo T-Bone & Yasu. Despite (or perhaps because of) the language and cultural barriers, these two have shown an uncanny, 'sixth-sense' ability to communicate through their music and their musical skills.

[Note: This list of Einstein quotes was being forwarded around the Internet in e-mail, so I decided to put it on my web page. I'm afraid I can't vouch for its authenticity, tell you where it came from, who compiled the list, who Kevin Harris is, or anything like that. Still, the quotes are interesting and enlightening.] "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.

Almost a week ago I wrote the most upvoted answer on Quora , which went from zero to over 5,100 upvotes in 3½ days. The scary thing was, I designed that answer to get 1,000 upvotes. And I've done it before too (see here , here and here ) with increasing frequency. It doesn't always work - and it's not the only way - but if you're curious, I'll let you into my secret sauce here. It's a seduction, not a shag I used to follow the old cliche: always answer the question in the first line, then elaborate .
The Completely Ownable, “Made-Up” Consumer Brand Wins Long Term I wrote this as a private email in 2006 and just refreshed for the blog “Should we call our site something literal or should we make up a new word?” This is a question I often get asked by consumer product/service entrepreneurs. In light of Microsoft’s re-launch of Microsoft MSN Live Search as “Bing”, I thought it timely to re-fresh some old thoughts I’ve had about naming, words, and branding. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I believe it is much more powerful long-term to make up a new word (e.g., Expedia, Zillow, or recently Glassdoor, 3 words that my teams have created) than it is to use a literal word (e.g., Travel.com, RealEstate.com, or Jobreviews.com).
