An approach that examines implicit understandings could be labelled, in contrast, the 'intentions of the parties' approach, for it acknowledges that it must discover those intentions from the context of the relationship as well as the formal document. What we find on close examination of the legal reasoning is that neither approach is used on its own. Judges always invoke the other method of interpretation as qualifiers, or, perhaps more accurately, as dangerous supplements. When a court adopts the literal approach, the dictionary definition of words will be confined by reference to the absurdity of the result, which seems to be an invocation of the presumed intentions of the parties to rule out certain meanings.
