comment How did “party” come to mean “gathering”?
How do you know that the people who started using the new meaning didn't understand the previous one? It could have been their sarcasm towards the words of elevated language, not ignorance.

The dictionary just describes a lot of meanings, but doesn't explain how they developed.
