Meaning is dictated largely by context and experience.  What one person says might mean something entirely different to another person.  Just as the meaning of life is relative, the meaning of the words we used depends on the context, our intent, and the other person's understanding.

Hi. Thanks, I wanted to link this post to Waiting for Godot specifically. So not the relationship between language and meaning in general, but in relation to Beckett's play.
