The playwright Tom Stoppard has an entertaining take on this.  He 
has  short play, based loosely on Wittgenstein and "language as 
use".  During the play, the audience learns an entirely new semantics of 
English by observing the action on stage.
>> It sure does show that humans are good to understand and associate new meaning to different things quickly...If this is so and happens often it would make the job of creating ontologies even more difficult;)
