Definition #72590 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o UI
definition discursive: counter-expectational – – aligning with expectations
notes This is typically denoted by the corrective meaning of the word "actually" in English, as in: "I actually do know how to tie my shoes, thanks" (this example also has some snark, sarcasm, or anger in it probably), "Leaded glass actually does not slowly melt or pool over time – that is a common double-misconception", or "Well, actually, [...]". In these sentences, there is no implication of surprise for the utterer, and possibly not for the other parties; it can even come up in response to a self-posed rhetorical question. It indicates that the claimed truth is contrary to what may be (but not necessarily truly is) one's expectations or previous notions or knowledge or experience.
