Discussion on: Explain What is DOM like I'm 🖐

This a great, and I think I understand. But I have a question with regards to how you're using the term 'parse' in your explanation. For instance, in the following sentence:

the HTML document IS the document, but then it is parsed and out of it comes the object model. Hence Document... Object Model.

would it be fine to substitute 'parse' with either 'analyze' or 'interpret'? What I'm asking is: is there another word instead of 'parse' that can be used to help me better understand.
