Types vs. Instances

How often have you said "object" when you really meant "class?" Martin just posted an interesting piece on homonyms. The most interesting conclusion: disambiguating terms can actually result in more confusion.

How many class diagrams actually refer to objects? Or diagrams of both classes and objects.

The most common confusion of object and class is in the term object oriented. C++ is a class oriented language, as is Java and just about all of the other "object oriented" languages.

But it seems rather too late to straighten that out.
