the title of this thread is an example in itself of what i want to talk about. maybe i should have said clarity instead of precision? does the word "verbal" imply something you say out loud, and if so, do i have to specifically make sure you know that i'm referring to the written word, also? should i have titled the thread "language clarity," perhaps? but i'm sure there is possible confusion in that title, as well.
this is something i struggle with a great deal. like, a lot of the time i will say something that vaguely points at what i want to say and then tack an "or whatever" or "or something" at the end and hope the general vibe of my thoughts get conveyed.
