Yes, but not just grammatical analysis. Syntax, semantics, grammar, lexis... everything has to do with context, does it not? Even context has to do with context! There is literary context, historical context, social context, political context, religious context, etc.

Lol, I did it again. Can you PLEASE change your name to Jeffrey??! Obviously whatever wire got crossed in my mind isn't going away!

Actually, here's the real source of my calling you Jeffrey...

I have 6 sons, all with names beginning with J. I could never manage to get their names straight and would just call them by whatever J name popped into my head. It got me by without having to dredge up the correct name, which is NOT my forte. Sorry for this misnomer.
What I lack in youth I make up for in immaturity.
