The reason for this is that I’m a tremendous fan of the great American Author P.G.Wodehouse.

So may I respectfully commend to you that extraordinarily useful tome, The English Dictionary whenever you encounter a word you simply do not understand?


Furthermore I additionally suggest this use of a dictionary, because it is reasonable to presume that whenever a person actively takes part in a Forum such as this, it is for one of three reasons.

They wish to share something important and enlightening.

They wish to learn and grow in understanding.

They are a Troll.
A fourth reason is self-indulgence.

Perhaps you could use the OP's misunderstanding to learn the art of brevity and conciseness?

No offense intended, but sometimes less really is more. Simple, short sentences might be clearer.
