Be aware of words that convey two or more meanings.
Fix: repair; to construct to ensure an outcome.
Most times I read and hear the word fix, I infer the person saying or writing it means repair. There are times, however, the context shows fix means to ensure an outcome, a conveyance only few people, people accustomed to language, catch, allowing comprehension of what was said.
Of course, that only a few people notice the author's use of fix means the majority of people didn't because they're unaccustomed to language usage. People who take in fix as repair when its use is to ensure outcome are people easily influenced; they are the collective.
Clear language use ensures you project your meanings and ensures your audience receives them, that it can't twist your words to mean something they don't. Taking time to use the right word is worthwhile.
