The distinction between a sale and a lease is important (to the story if not to the conversation), the attempt to imply that the other parties in the areement were anything other than [[TheLegionsOfHell fiends]] not so much.

May also relate to CannotTellALie or WillNotTellALie, when the wording is very deliberately selected to convey a false impression without technically being a lie in the traditional sense.

* Similarly, in ''Manga/LuckyStar'', after Konata asks her dad, on account of him having loved [[OlderThanTheyLook Kanata]] and being clingy with Konata herself, if he is a {{Lolicon}}, he insists that she's got him all wrong; he not only likes young girls, but likes more mature, well-endowed women, too, so he is "''also'' a lolicon"... Konata is suitably disturbed.

-->'''Holly:''' He's not my beau. He's my ''boyfriend''!** There is a genuine legal distinction between robbery and burglary, which most people don't think about much, but Murphy, being a police officer, would be well aware of the difference (namely, "Robbery" involves violence or the threat of it, while "Burglary" only requires taking stuff).

-->'''Holly:''' He's not my beau. He's my ''boyfriend''!** Several times through the series and movies, Spock was accused of lying, only to reply that he "exaggerated", or "implied" or in some other way [[WillNotTellALie deliberately led others to false conclusions without technically lying]].

** Also, when Margaret states that they are blackmailing Frank, Hawkeye and BJ respond, "Blackmail is such an ugly word. We prefer extortion."

* In Paul Robinson's ''In the Matter Of: The Gatekeeper: The Gate Contracts'', George Green is asked if he was rude to someone. He pulls a RulesLawyer and asks for the definition of "rude". His boss hands him an electronic dictionary and discovers he was, so he admits it. Later he tells his boss he was going to say no, he had been "curt" but he discovered it's essentially the same thing, so he said yes, he was rude.

* Maj. Gen. Oliver P. Smith, the Commanding General, 1st Marine Division, at the Chosin Reservoir, said, "Retreat, hell! We're not retreating, we're just advancing in a different direction." To a civilian, retreat means "move away from a battle or position" but the military definition is specifically "withdrawal of troops to a more favorable position ''to escape the enemy's superior forces or after a defeat''. Since they were moving to ''attack'' the enemy as part of their break-out, their actions could be described as an advance rather than a retreat. What it all comes down to, of course, is that Marines would much rather point out that they were ''attacking'' the enemy instead of getting hung up on the fact that they were ''also'' getting themselves out of a very untenable situation. "Retreat" is a word that brings with it connotations of running away from the fight, which they were certainly not doing.
