Create three lists of words: 

(a) words that are no longer used

(b) slang used within their own peer groups that probably are not known to outsiders. 

(c) a list of words referring to the  same referent (for example, someone’s friend may be referred to in many  different ways, such as pal, buddy, companion, soul mate, partner). 

After you compile your list, talk  about the  the arbitrary nature of symbols and why perfect understanding  is not possible. For your words, please define them so we can  understand what they mean.
