What is the meaning of a word?

As John and I were discussing our favourite topic of Wittgenstein this evening (over a game of backgammon, naturally) we were astounded when our good friend Mr Gary Barker texted John to inform us that Wittgenstein was a specialised subject on Mastermind.

We turned on the TV to discover that some fellow knew almost as much about Wittgenstein as we do. Turns out he won the heat too. He wasn't playing backgammon though.

Discussion of Wittgenstein is becoming a bit old hat for me to be honest. My latest topic of interest is Complexity and Complication in Evolving Historical Processes. I heard about it on University Challenge. Anyone want to discuss it over a game of chess?
