comment What's the difference between “big” and “large”?
Big predates large in Middle English: large came over from Norman French. Large is regarded as more formal than big, as are most English words coming from Norman French, because it was the royalty and upper classes that used these words the most while they entered the English language.

comment Is there a word for a change so small that it doesn’t seem to be a change at all?
@zano I see. So, not really a common parlance, more like a connotation among some groups of people.

@zano, can you cite that? I've never seen or heard that parlance. Unless you mean those definitions the way some people might say "government" has come to mean some of those same things.

Homeopathic means, essentially, to treat like with like. Its opposite, allopathic, means to treat with the opposite. The word has nothing to do with the dilution of the curatives, only the philosophical approach to treatment.

comment What's the meaning of “he walked away a free man”?
@PyroTyger, in that usage, it would be more simply put "he walked." By adding "away" it makes the meaning more vague until we know what was walked away from. So, I don't think "to walk" and "to walk away" are the same sense, but I do believe "to walk" and "to walk away a free man" are much closer in meaning.
