" @GIRUGAMESH said:I am sorry but I have to comment on both of your slight apparent ignorance of english. The word WORLD can have MORE THAN ONE meaning (no offence intended by using capitals, it is just clearer than bold). We say everybody lives in their on world, or throughout the world, or like you said in fantasy they can be referring to a universe. But I think that you should accept how the guy intended to use the word. Peace. "
" @cfatalis said:so basically when villain says i will rule the whole world in say a fantasy manga he only says that planet? wow that's lame, even queen in mar had a better ambition and when did i say world = whole universe, i said it's the known universe "
" @Nerx: world refers to known universe, and since dragonball is that huge/small well.... "That is totally ridiculous, since when does world refer to a universe? That is disgusting logic, a world is a planet. When people say "entire worlds were wiped out", that is NOT referring to multiverse busting. "
Yes, a word can have more than one meaning, but one's English (spelt with a CAPITAL 'e') cannot be criticized if said individual is unaware or oblivious to another meaning in another context, rather their lack of knowledge should be focused upon.
Don't know what I meant by that comment, just had a rage.
Anyway, lock the thread.
