    How to use "More obliquely" in context?

    As much as one would like to deny it, language is central to our understanding of the world. It is through words that we build and deconstruct pictures of reality, share thoughts, and articulate our emotions. However, language is not static. It constantly evolves, adapting to the changing world around us. This is particularly true of verbs, which are increasingly being used in new and more oblique ways.

    For example, when we say someone is playing the part of a monkey, we are using a verb that has come to refer to a type of entertainment.
