Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because the proper definition for connotation is an idea or feeling that a word invokes for a person in addition to its literal or primary meaning. So,in your case connotation is the authors meaning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"Guiding" someone to a solution has a very different denotation than what you just did @raane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By definition: "guiding" someone is giving them directions, not taking them to the answer. @raane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'd rather just get the answer. So thanks, @raane :) And @skullpatrol, there's no need to get all butthurt just because somebody gave me the answer, but didn't "guide" me to it. I don't post questions on here for somebody to "guide" me to. I post so somebody can give me the answer straight up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Who follows that!? I sure don't. Pretty sure most people on here don't want to be guided to the answer, they want it now. Like I do. But if you want to be guided or be the guide, I sure ain't gonna stop ya. Go for it, skippy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is sooo true, all I'm asking for is you to give me a chance to teach you what the relationship is between context and connotation :D
