an interchange of meaning

Ambiguity Colour Codes: the basis of the system

         stop word (ignored, based on the standard search engine algorithm)
         common word / many meanings / *consensus on prime meaning 
         common word / many meanings / no consensus on prime meaning
         common word / many meanings / includes specialist meaning 
         uncommon word / disputed usage 

Common-words are those based on an aggregation of academic word-lists and represent most of our active vocabulary. By default, words not listed on our word-lists are therefore uncommon-words. 

*consensus on prime-meaning is determined from the aggregation of the numbered sequence of senses drawn from the 3 main English language on-line databases.
