Quote:I agree with you. Just pointing out that folks that study this sort of thing for a living are unclear about some of the words that were used and what they mean.
Quote:To me, that makes it questionable that people would use the versus to just claim anything as an absolute reason.
It's true words have changed meaning over time as well...so it could have meant something totally other than how we see it now. (Though to be fair this applies to that song its cold outside too ;P)
I just contend that Baby its Cold Outside is a horrible Christmas song. I am cool if radios play it, just a song about seduction is not that festive to me.
