Perhaps I should have written "Wrongly used word," then--but it's 
usually more effective to read all of a paragraph in order to understand 
what is being conveyed, rather than stopping at the first word and 
ignoring the rest.

And you still don't seem to acknowledge that an *emulation* is something 
that *produces the same result as something it is mimicking*, rather 
than just bearing a superficial resemblance.
