Suppose you are the gentleman or lady in this picture below. As you head into the town of Nowhere, both of you are lost and need to find your way out of here. As you reach for your smartphone (to access Google Maps), you find your battery is dead. To make matters worse, you realize forgot your charger. And the person with you (your friend) only has flip phone that can only call and send text messages. So you decide to grab your friend's flip phone and text a mutual friend who lives somewhere in (or around) this area. Here's how the conversation goes: And that's it. So now: How would you describe the nature of the information your friend gave you?
Why would you describe it this way? Please explain.
