Has anyone ever said to you that something is wicked or sick, meaning it is awesome or great? In chemistry a solution may refer to a liquid mixture, whilst in mathematics a solution may refer to the value which solves an equation or a means of solving a mathematical problem. Ever heard of business terms like hedging or leverage? Engineers may use the word gauge to refer to the width of something (e.g., thickness of sheet metal, or diameter of a screw), whilst scientists may use it to refer to the instrument that measures content (e.g., a rain gauge). Every field has its jargon.
Learning Statistics involves learning the meaning of many new terms AND most importantly learning the correct statistical meanings of a lot of familiar terms.
While one term may be broad and interchangeable, another may be very specific and therefore it may be hard to find correct substitute language or terms.
So look for the key words and terms. Perhaps start your own glossary so you may more easily check word meanings should you ever get stuck.
