The English language is quite humorous in how we use the same word to mean so many different things.
Take the word “reward” for example. A reward can be something given in return for what someone has done.
A reward can be money offered in return for information.
Or, a reward can be a benefit obtained as result of an action taken.
So, when someone says, “I hope you get the reward that is coming to you!” that can be a good thing. Or, a bad thing. Right?
Just checking. Not that anyone has said that to me, lately.
