What Does “That’s Just Semantics!” Mean?

uite often, I come across someone saying, “That’s just semantics”. The irony about the phrase (and debates around the phrase) is that it’s not exactly clear what it means. At the very least, it’s not always clear what the phrase means (to me).

Some people will say that the meaning of that phrase depends on the context.
