  3. Domestic is an Adjective is easier to explain with animals. A domestic animal is an animal that is no longer wild or tame.

    Ethos is a noun, it's the fundamental character or spirit of a group. The main Idea so to speak.

    Euphemism is a Noun. It takes a Vague Expression to one to think it was harsh or negative. Sort of like mis-interpreting something.( I found it hard to understand the meaning for this but I think this is what it means).
