Connotation Notation  (VR)

Words don’t have just denotation (meanings), they also have connotation (leanings). For example, it makes a difference if you call a person “famous” or “notorious.” The word famous has a positive connotation. The word notorious has a negative connotation; it involves being famous for something bad or unacceptable. Many times it helps to ask, “Why was thisword used instead of another one?”
