We use 'pandemic' for 'Covid 19' is 'pandemic' like 'overall'?


Yes. "Pan" means all, or across all (Pan America means across all of America). "demic" is from the root word in Greek "demos" meaning "people". So pandemic means across, or affecting, all people.


I saw this word much on the Internet, but unitl now didn't know its meaning. Many thanks. Angel
Sorry FounDit, what is the difference between this word and 'contagious', please?

Well, in the widest terms only.

to relate to something is to be connected with it.

To correlate is to match - when one goes up the other goes down; or when one goes up the other goes up.


So sometimes the terms may be similar, but you are being far more specific when you say things are correlated.

Interesting. Many thanks dear thar. Angel

Correlate
To correlate is to have a close connection to something

I think this 'correlate' has the same meaning of 'relate', right?

I am a great believer in the explanatory power of images. They go straight to the imagination part of the brain and have no need for translation!

I think it might be a new usage.

To target someone is to aim at them.

so, in advertising.
This advert is aimed at young women
This advert targets young women

In attacks
The gunman deliberately shot at the men sitting in the back seat of the car, not the driver.
The gunman targeted the men sitting in the back seat of the car.


This drug is designed to attack cancer cells and not healthy cells
This drug targets cancer cells.

The concept of the target is simple - the thing you deliberately aim at.
Whether this is a new use of the verb or not, I don't know. I think it is.

Hello dear thar Angel
Many thanks for the great explanation, I understand.

Target
to target is to aim an attack at someone or something

Can you please explain 'target' more? I still don't understand it
