    Connotation is closely related to context.

    @raane Code of conduct: OpenStudy values the Learning process - not the ‘Give you an answer’ process Don’t post only answers - guide the asker to a solution.

    because 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.

    You are not guiding the asker to a solution, you gave the answer and then explained why>

    "Guiding" someone to a solution has a very different denotation than what you just did @raane

    By definition: "guiding" someone is giving them directions, not taking them to the answer. @raane

    I'd rather just get the answer. So thanks, @raane :) And @skullpatrol, there's no need to get all butt-hurt 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.

    What you are doing is cheating yourself of a learning experience.

    Do you understand what a Code of conduct means: OpenStudy values the Learning process - not the ‘Give you an answer’ process Don’t post only answers - guide the asker to a solution.

    I'm young. I've got awhile to achieve learning experiences, thank you.

    Who 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.

    Did you even think about what I said above about "context?"

    Everybody has their own way of learning. Some people don't go by the book.

    That 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
