Re: Why do readers interpret what writers write?
Can you give us an example where you have used a word, intending it to be understood as its dictionary definition, but the reader has taken it to mean something completely different? I'm having a hard time imagining a situation where that could happen unless the word has multiple definitions and the reader simply thinks of the wrong one. Basically, however, you can't force your readers to understand exactly what you meant.
