      I see this part of semantics several times a day. One is not a few; a couple are but also are not some; some is not most; most are not all.  But, for the sake of argument, many speakers and writers try very hard to move these qualifiers around.

      "Many" covers a broad swath, for the sake of discussion.

      Some ways are nice and get the point across ('nuf said and thanks) and some ways are nasty (for really no reason, except to be smugly con-descendent) and, while they may get the point across, the ill effect of nastiness far outweighs the point.
