If 'specific' in 'the specific way to do it' was replaced with 'concrete' as 'the concrete way to do it', would it still sound OK and make the same sense?

Why do you want to use "concrete" instead of "specific"? Again, I have to refer to "selectivity" vs. "tangiblilty", to me "concrete" strongly implies some sort of physical or demonstrable presence, if only as a "concrete example" that you lay out on paper or on a screen.

Perhaps if you gave us the whole context?

Hi Taka

I think this discussion might be easier if your question were more concrete and less theoretical.

In this case, being "more concrete" might involve giving us an entire sentence. Then we could look at that specific sentence and maybe come up with responses that would be more satisfying for you.

Well, actually it was not I that chose that word. I was asked if it works in a sentence like this: 'No one tells you the specific ways to notice the signals your children give'. He used 'concrete' where I would use 'specific' as above.
