Interesting. Thanks. I found this article while googling "in that respect", prompted by the fact that I often (and increasingly) come across it being used to mean, roughly, "therefore", as in "All men are mortal. Socrates is a man. In that respect, Socrates is mortal" (fictional example, since I mayn't quote real cases). So much so that I started wondering if this was what it meant all along, rather than, as I had assumed, roughly "in this way/dimension/etc. (but quite possibly not in others)". Do you people ever come across the "therefore" usage in your line of work? Any thoughts about it?
