Summary0000289: Misleading problem message on forgetting the "something" when defining a new activity
DescriptionThe below code reports, "Before reading 'Painting is an activity on colors' , I already knew that 'Painting' is an activity, and it is too late to change now." This took me a good half hour to figure out that the word "something" was required. (Usually 'something' means 'objects of class Thing'.)
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
"kov activity"

A color is a kind of value.  The colors are red, green, blue.

Painting is an activity on colors.

spot is room
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded

Yes, this certainly deserved a better problem message, and now has a very explicit one. (Well, it doesn't have the sort of sticker on it that you find on an Eminem album, but you get the general idea.)
