These are words which often give to expressions a meaning far from that
intended. Thus, "I have nothing to do with that other rascal across
the street," certainly means that I am a rascal myself. "I sent the
despatch to my friend, but another villain intercepted it," clearly
signifies that my friend is a villain.

meaning clear. You can do this by making each sentence or phrase in which
they occur independent of contextual aid.
