    Grant, maybe you ought to look at this as follows, The how can represent how you say the words, I mean by this talking to someone in a angry, gently, hurting, humble, nice, lovely,.... manner makes those pronounced words memes.

    Like the example you mention about You Being The Man, I am a man, say it now in the ways I described above, hear the difference....each time a new specific set of information is attached to it, you don 't even need context, in the way you pronounce it context is inbedded.
