A stupid part of the english language in which people actually argue the meaning of words. As if I want to argue with you about what the damn word means to you. Go fuck yourselves you self absorbed bastards
I'm not going to argue semantics with a jerk off like you.

My understanding of the term "semantics" is that words can be manipulated to influence human thought and action. Mr. George Orwell had a good grasp of the concept, for example "Newspeak". Please look up "semantics" in a dictionary for a more professional definition.
An example of the use of semantics is: "Foetus" as compared to "unborn child".

The study of the meaning of words.

Often misused when quibbling about something someone said. In that context, the statement "That's only semantics" would be more aptly phrased as "You're just 'splitting hairs on word meanings."
Often used within the phrase "That's only semantics":
-- as a blanket repudiation of precise communication.

-- by persons advocating 'subjective feelings' over 'objective description' as a mainstay of communication.

The very concept of semantics is frequently disparaged by wishy-washy passive-aggressives who refuse to be accountable for their careless use of language or their deplorable lack of education.

Skater-boy was too lazy to choose his words carefully, unaware that without semantics, even his street drivel would be incomprehensible.
