Correct use of tributary. However you understood my meaning. And that means it was semantically correct. (I am a linguist)

The fact that I understood what you meant doesn't make what you said semantically correct. 5000 words on The Semantics of Sarcasm on my desk by tomorrow morning please. Humpty Dumpty cannot appear in your bibliography.
