    Dear Ian,

    You wrote 19 Apr 2004 00:11:13 +0100:
    'Many (most?) apparently literal facts were once metaphors, now so commonly
    accepted, that their origin in
    metaphor is lost to all but linguists.'

    I think "all literal facts were once metaphors" is defendable.
    To what extent is "America is an experiment" and "war is an experiment"
    accepted as fact among Americans?

    With friendly greetings,
