What are inamples?
Type “define example” into the Google search bar presumably at the top of your browser window, and you get “a thing characteristic of its kind or illustrating a general rule.” Makes sense, because it’s straightforward, right? Take this statement:
I like fruits. For example, mangoes and grapes.
There was no issue in that statement, correct? Now what would you think if I said the following:
I like fruits. For example, sofas and broccoli.
Does that make any sense? No, I don’t think so. And why doesn’t it make sense? Because like we said, examples have to be inclusive of the thing we are aiming to represent. Did you notice I used “inclusive” not “exclusive” to indicate the relationship? My proposition is that examples be called inamples, since we are including something in our collection. And when someone is being antonym-ical (I’m aware that’s not a word), they may choose to provide examples that are excluded from what they are specifying.
