    ---They have misused "propaganda" (the distribution of the truth) to the point it has taken on the meaning of telling lies and mis-truths. ---They use the word "bathroom" when referring to the toilet or lavatory and there is no bath (or shower) in that room. ---They use the word "vagina" when actually meaning genitals or pubic area. (the vagina is a specific internal canal for sex, menstruation and birth and is only one part of the genitals). ---They have changed the spelling of "Paediatrics" and "Paediatrician" (meaning the medical treatment of children) and left out the "a", making it PEDIATRICS and PEDIATRICIAN not realising that they are talking about the medical treatment of the foot and leg the same as podiatrist (PED means "leg" or "foot" as in pedestrian, biped, quadruped, tripod etc). --- They use other words and spellings that alter the meaning of a word without looking at the origins of the word.
