It appears, for example, that I can't figure out some of the numerous meanings of the word figure.
At first glance, I was so sure the headline for the above article:
"Clan factors to figure in contest for speaker"...was not making sense. The correct version, I immediately thought, should have been:
" Clan factors to feature in contest for speaker"I now know the figure of various definitions of figure is quite high.
It can be a noun, verb and even figure of speech.
