I recently looked up the word seminal. I knew it meant leading the way but I wanted to be sure.
1. (of a work, event, moment, or figure) Strongly influencing later developments.
2. Of, relating to, or denoting semen.
I didn’t realise it had that second meaning but I am so glad it does: now I can claim, in complete honesty, that I have been involved in thousands of seminal productions.
