For a start, the first two are adjectives and the third is a noun.

What parts of the dictionary definitions of these words are not clear to you?

In another forum they say 'scheme' isn't a proper word here but 'mechanism' is, do you think so?.


That isn't a totally accurate picture of what was said here: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/mechanism-scheme.3797255/#post-19393025

I really think we should petition TFD to remove the political sub-forum and rigorously ban any political posts. All the other sub-forums have educational value this one is lost to divisiveness and hostility.


Given the tardiness of the reaction of the admins in the past to racist, sexist, homophobic, etc, posts, a simpler and more effective idea might be for all who are disturbed by the lies and hatred spread in the politics forum to ignore the sub-forum completely.

When I checked a few minutes ago, only eleven of the sixty posts on the first page were started by FD or similar-minded people. If they had been ignored, they would have died very quickly. Many of the other forty-nine inevitably attracted responses from such people.

Ignore the politics forum, and the troublemakers will have no audience.

I know from personal experience how hard it can be to leave blatant lied unchallenged, but this may be the only way to deflate them.

I've even been accused of being unethical!

To ask a question in a language forum about a language point with the concealed intention of testing/proving your Emperor's new Clothes Effect theory is deceitful to sat the least.

A gentle piece of advice - if you wish people to continue to converse here about your passion, you'd do better to stop with the condescending tone and accept what we are able to offer. Or take your questions to what you consider to be more learned circles.
