The trouble with language

So much of all this is just semantics… the inherent difficulty of language in defining and describing concepts as intangible as creativity, originality, innovation, inspiration, talent, skill, hard work, genius, value... (thank you, Sean for that list of concepts. I’m sure I could keep going and adding more into the mix).

Anyway, really feel like I should have a glossary at the start of my thesis. Even if I define these words in my own terms, it'll help people understand what I'm trying to get at. I hope.
