Consider my phrases here:

(1) And I would note three things:

(2) And I would also make these three important points:

We have the verb "make" and the verb "note".

1: So it's not like the word "also" means that "make' is the same thing semantically as "note", correct?

2: And it's not like the word "also" means that the "three things" in (1) are necessarily "important", correct?

I could write this:

(3) I would declare these things.

(4) And I would also question these silly things.

And it's not like the word "also" in (4) means that "question" is semantically identical to "deciare".

And it's not like the word "also" in (4) means that the "things" in (3) are necessarily "silly".

No. You would do one thing, and you would (also) do something else.



2: And it's not like the word "also" means that the "three things" in (1) are necessarily "important", correct?



Correct.



I could write this:

(3) I would declare these things.

(4) And I would also question these silly things.

And it's not like the word "also" in (4) means that "question" is semantically identical to "deciare".

And it's not like the word "also" in (4) means that the "things" in (3) are necessarily "silly".

Right.
