Definition of COMPLICATION from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/complication
1. a : complexity, intricacy; especially : a situation or a detail of character complicating the main thread of a plot
b : a making difficult, involved, or intricate
c : a complex or intricate feature or element
d : a difficult factor or issue often appearing unexpectedly and changing existing plans, methods, or attitudes
2: a secondary disease or condition developing in the course of a primary disease or condition
So which of those usages would not be describing something that was complicated?
Post the definitions of both terms, post a cogent analysis of how they are parallel, then get back to me. I'll be waiting eagerly for your report.
