Explain, in detail, analytic-philosophy.

Analytic-Philosophy is a term for using common experience and ordinary language to analyze concepts and language in philosophy.  Linguistic analysis, which studies the way words are used, is an example of analytic-philosophy.  It can also be understood as a philosophical movement that seeks the solution of philosophical problems in the analysis of propositions or sentences, which is also referred to as analytic-philosophy.

Analytic-philosophy attempts to clarify, by analysis, the meaning of statements and concepts.  The word 'game', for example, is used to talk about board games, Olympic Games, soccer games, and more.  These games do not hold one essential quality in common, rather there are overlapping and criss-crossing similarities.
