My bad, Florentia! Sorry. Here's one of the phrases:Your English is fine, RaulPN. We still need to see the sentence in which you would use the word. We don't discuss words or phrases out of context here.
But in the example above the legal responsibility is obviously not at stake, after all it's a simple comment in a free forum. The use was figurative. So 'disclaimer' in this sense is similar to 'caveat'? It's 'only' a degree difference? Both mean to warn the reader of a statement?With 'disclaimer 'you refuse to be held responsible for (legal) consequences.
That's a long way from caveat. Caveat can raise a (personal) restriction, but not in that strong sense of disclaimer.
A disclaimer is an upfront statement absolving the person making it from responsibility for something. It refers to the person making the disclaimer.**disclaimer: this answer is not written to hurt sentiments of the readers**"
