While you certainly have a point here, what I'm referring to is the difference between common definitions and science. Gravity is a good example:

If you know Einstein's theory of general relativity, then you know that that definition is wrong, because in Eintein's model gravity isn't a force.

Common definitions aren't always scientifically accurate, and they shouldn't. Saying 'Those are some mighty fine air vibration interpretations' just isn't a practical way of saying things, so we commonly call those vibrations sound, even though it's not scientifically accurate.

Anyway, this is quite off-topic
