How is semen a related term? Fyrius 14:51, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, seminar is from the Latin for seed, and semen means seed. Related term refers to a related etymology. It does not mean synonym or anything of that sort. —Stephen 15:28, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

But surely the "related terms" section isn't for words that only have a common root, without having anything to do with the word itself. Fyrius 21:30, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes, that’s what "related terms" is intended for. It’s for words that share the same root. Words that have a different root but a similar, though not identical, meaning go under "see also". If identical, then "synonyms". —Stephen 22:44, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

If you say so. Fyrius 12:53, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Some of our nomenclature is an acquired taste. DCDuring TALK 18:01, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
