    Just like modern art? Trow random spots on the canvas…and if they don’t get it, call them philistines.

    Totally trapezoid.

    Does Agnes even know the meaning of rhomboid or rhombus? (however, for Trout’s case, Agnes didn’t mean square but rhombus — there is a not-so-subtle difference)

    I doubt it. Agnes sees words in books that she retrieves from the dumpster. If she likes the sounds of the words, she uses them. No comprehension necessary.

    I have to admit Agnes does get on a roll with wherever her mind goes.

    -
    A word means to Agnes whatever she wishes it to mean.
    What it would mean to others would only matter if communication with us lesser beings mattered.

    David…. she’s not alone in that…..


    ’ “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s all.” ’

    and there can be no question that Agnes is master of all she surveys, even using the word “master” to describe a girl

    while a rhomboid is traditionally a parallelogram with no right angles, in the Agnes universe it could be anything,
    Even in our universe two of the angles could be
    89.99999999999999999999 degrees
    and the others

    90.00000000000000000001 degrees,
    more or less
