p.s. last thing about the "tragic" issue... words take on social and colloquial meanings well beyond whatever their original narrow meanings. I mean, if I say Z looks "sinister" I doubt somebody will say, "ZOMG he's not even left handed!! ARRRRGH!"
I like eric a lot, and I myself have certain words that drive me crazy when people misuse them, but in this case I still have to disagree with him and have been unable to follow some of his analysis on this thread. Anyway, with this one point... many literary terms are used this way... tragic, irony, metaphor, etc. I'm waiting until "litotes" takes on a social meaning, as it's my personal fave.
