A while back, I got a solicitation from a local real estate agent whose client was ostensibly in the market for a "loft." The agent described her buyer’s ideal loft — apparently without irony — as having "at least two bedrooms, two baths, (and) 1,500-plus square feet."

I wondered why the agent bothered using the term "loft" when it sounded more like her client was really in the market for a huge condo apartment, if not a fair-sized house.

Webster defines loft as "an upper room or floor" or "one of the upper floors of a warehouse or business building, especially when not partitioned."
