I am a researcher at Incipit, where I read, write, think, have coffee and also write code every now and then.

I have extensive experience in method engineering, software methodologies, conceptual modelling, software development techniques, technical writing and project management.

I'm also a partner in two businesses where we develop large software applications and services, and I participate in standardisation projects with ISO and AENOR.

You can also find me on LinkedIn and I keep a couple of blogs.

@TimLymington: Indeed. That's my point.

Postmodern authors often talk about "reading" almost anything. And you can definitely "read" someone's face or body language. If we accept metaphors, there's no limit.

comment User’s Guide vs Users’ Guide
-1 The guide belongs to the user/users in the second example, but it doesn't belong to the installation in the first. Your reasoning is thus flawed.

comment “Infer” vs. “imply” — can “infer” imply “imply”?
@KyleStrand: I agree that natural languages are moving targets that change continuously and therefore cannot be completely determined by rules (your words). But between this and never having been subject to any codified set of rules (again your words) there is a huge distance. Spanish and French, to use my examples, are both subject to many codified rules and still not completely determined by them.

You say natural languages are not and have never been subject to any codified set of rules. Some are, such as Spanish or French. Descriptivism is big in the anglosphere, but not that big outside it.
