I like buckwheat noodles or soba. I donít think I consume buckwheat in any other way.

The seeds of grass crops.

If I remember correctly, there are a lot of differences between buckwheat and grains, even though they can be used in the same way.

Do you call black peppers grain? Cumin? Coriander seeds?

All grains are seeds but not all seeds are grains. I believe grains are defined as the seeds from staple crops rather than spices.

If I remember correctly, pepper, as in black pepper, is a berry.

When people say "semantics," they usually use it to dismiss a difference in description as a meaningless distinction. Is that what you meant?
