You’re driving down the highway in your truck. You see that the highway divides into ‘cars only’ and ‘cars + trucks.’ This is just one moment in the linguist trouble of the car/truck dichotomy.

Naturally, you, in your normal pickup, are allowed in the ‘cars only’ section. The highway is concerned with big truck trucks like 18 wheelers.
