WORD MEANING OR DEFINITION (QUOTE)

“A DICTIONARY GIVES A DEFINITION TO WORDS AND TRIES TO APPLY THE EXACT MEANING OF THE WORDS. WELL, I FEEL THAT A DICTIONARY CAN ONLY IMPLY AND SUGGEST THE MEANING…. IT IS ONLY A PERSON THAT IS ABLE TO GIVE MEANING TO A WORD”

Chime in !!!! No!!! I’ll explain (RANT)

I’m starting to understand why people do not speak much anymore. As I research into defining a lot of this goofy language its becoming very clear that we ought to consider a complete and total destruction of it and form a new one. All literary material and dictionaries should be burned and outlawed. lol

Here is one example:

When someone would like to chime in to your conversation. Usually they politely ask if the may chime in.

Just more proof that people have no idea what they are saying!! This is not a big deal to anyone else because they themselves don’t know what is being said to them.

I’ll admit that I never knew what “chime in” meant, but I also never would say that or anything else that I do not have a least a general understanding.

My way of saying this would be direct. If I was politely asking- It would be “I’m sorry to interrupt, do mind if I join in this conversation?”

If being rude – it would be “Sorry, I have to stop you right now and tell you ….”

get the point?  Well take a look and realize that “chime” is actually irritating and offensive by definition lol

So, I found a better alternative to “chime”.

TONE LOL

LOOK AT THE DEFINITIONS AND YOU DECIDE.

CHIME
verb
1 the bells began to chime: ring, peal, toll, sound; ding, dong, clang, boom, bong; literary knell.
2 the clock chimed eight o’clock: strike, sound.
noun
the chime of the bells: peal, pealing, ringing, carillon, toll, tolling; ding-dong, clanging, tintinnabulation; literary knell.
PHRASES
chime in “Yes, you do that,” Doreen chimed in: interject, interpose, interrupt, butt in, cut in, join in.

NOW DOESN’T THIS SOUND LIKE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO CHIME?  

TONE

1 the tone of the tuba: timbre, sound, sound quality, voice, voice quality, color, tonality.
2 the somewhat impatient tone of his letter: mood, air, spirit, feel, sound, flavor, note, attitude, character, nature, manner, temper; tenor, vein, drift, gist.
3 a dial tone: note, signal, beep, bleep.
4 tones of burgundy and firebrick red: shade, color, hue, tint, tinge.
PHRASES
tone down the pastels in the upholstery will help to tone down the color scheme: soften, lighten, mute, subdue, mellow; moderate, modify, modulate, mitigate, temper, dampen.

What I love about Quotes (Creating them not copying)

There is something about a well designed quote that I can’t begin to explain. THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE TO CREATE A QUOTE. Because, I could go on and on for pages explaining this or if I phrase my quotes in such a way that the words strategically selected and positioned can explain 20 pages of thoughts in less than a couple sentences. ………..A good quote to me has not only content, it also has interpretational depth with layers for those analytical people like myself to discover.

JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE- I HAVE VERY WEAK WRITING SKILLS, AND VERY TO NO EDUCATION IN ENGLISH REGARDLESS OF MY EXTENSIVE / EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION. SPELLING, GRAMMAR, PRONOUNS, ADJECTIVES ADVERBS, ECT……. I WOULDN’T PASS GRAMMAR SCHOOL LOL…… GOOD THINK MY FIELD WAS PSYCHOLOGY WHERE THEY WERE NOT VERY CONCERNED WITH WRITING ABILITY.

I DO BELIEVE THAT BEING OVER ANALYTICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL APPLICATION TO WORDS, TONE, STATEMENTS, ECT PLAYS IT PART IN MY STRUGGLE WHEN I WRITE. I COULD SAY SOMETHING OUT LOUD PERFECTLY, YET ONCE I PUT IT ON PAPER OR TEXT THAT IS WHEN MY STRUGGLE BEGINS. **KNOWING THAT THE READER IS OPEN TO INTERPRETATION BASED ON THE WORDS THEMSELVES DISASSOCIATED FROM ANY EMOTIONAL OR PERSONALITY THAT GIVES THEM MEANING. OTHERWISE THEY ARE JUST A COLLECTION OF LETTERS, WORDS, SENTENCES.

SO, AN EXAMPLE HOW I WOULD TRY TO QUOTE THE ABOVE

“A DICTIONARY CAN PROVIDE A DEFINITION TO A WORD, BUT, ONLY A PERSON IS ABLE TO GIVE A MEANING TO A WORD”

ARE YOU INTERPRETING RESPONSIBLY?

FIRST A LITTLE BORING SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND

Music and emotion
Music is capable of producing some of the strongest emotional reactions in humans, whether it’s joy, sadness, fear or nostalgia. It’s interesting to note than people from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds will often agree on whether a piece of music sounds happy or sad – for this reason music is often considered the universal “language of emotions”.
The idea of music as language is more accurate than it might first seem. When we hear music, our brains are imposing structure and order on a number of distinct sounds so that we experience them as a whole. It’s a perceptual illusion that changes what we hear, much as we don’t “hear” spoken language as a series of vocalisations – instead, we hear the meaning of the words.
However, music is much more rooted in primitive brain structures than language – structures connected with motivation, reward and primal emotions. For instance, that urge to get your shake on on the dance floor is caused by neural oscillators synchronising with the pulse of the music,
causing us to unconsciously anticipate when the next beat will occur. When the beat falls, our brains give us a small ‘reward’ hit for anticipating it correctly.
There’s no strong scientific agreement on why music has such a powerful ability to conjure up the same images and feelings, even among different people with different memories. The appreciation of music involves a complex combination of the brain’s memory, language, auditory and emotional centres all working together – perhaps it’s simply this satisfying, harmonious brain-exercise that gives us the pleasure response.

TAKE A LOOK/LISTEN TO THESE EDIT VERSIONS OF MOVIES TRAILERS AND HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE INTERPRETED …. !!!! KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU WATCH THE “NEWS” OR ANYTHING YOU READ, HEAR, SEE ….

Another Rant On Language

OH HERE WE GO

     Hopefully it is clear by now, my complete and absolute hatred of the language and words! This is not a result from being  uneducated(I think the colleges should reimburse us) but thats another topic!…..  Even my poor writing skills (openly admit and am aware of) can not be fully or mostly responsible for this…..

.HOW COULD ANYONE REALISTICALLY COMPREHEND THIS LANGUAGE? Is it only me and my limited literary skills that I find it completely ridiculous and aggravating that the meaning of words are (inconclusive) through definitions? Almost every word is defined by multiple words, each of the defining words have a somewhat different directional meaning themselves. It’s difficult enough for someone like me (with little or no writing skills) beyond psychology papers…. But, those were mostly constructed through precise and specific words created by the field of study and only need to use some “regular”  language  or words to connect/fill in. Also, we didn’t lose that many points at all for writing skills, grammar —– they only were interested in the content material and information.

You could almost say something like —— It is by the no way thank of thought to assume presumable no doubts  that prefrontal cortex function is directly involved in processing —  lol  YES MY UNDERLINE PORTION WAS MAYBE A LITTLE EXTREME OF EXAMPLE ( BUT AS LONG AS WHAT IS BOLD, AND THE ACTUAL INFORMATION IS OK, THAN SADLY THEY WOULDN’T CARE OR PENALIZE YOUR GRADE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT SEEM NECESSARY TO LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPERLY)

Let me choose some words for example (not going to get into grammar , structure) Just a few words or statements

I’m going to try my best to “act naturally” (how can you be natural if your acting?)

Let me be clear that I’ll always try to provide “original copies” (copies- original? need i say more)

It is starting to get “pretty  ugly”

Simple——- is defined “understood, no difficulty” also defined as “abnormally low intelligence” So, something simple is understood without difficulty but, a simple mind might not be able to…..

Understood?  Just as long as you realize the definition of “understood” doesn’t mean “you get it” you may understand something, as long as you are aware that if you understand you don’t “know”—- because the definition of understanding something refers to you only perceiving — blah blah OK I’m done for now, before I get sick….. lol

SAY WHAT YOU MEAN AND ALSO HEAR THE MEANING OF WHAT IS SAID

WHEN SOMEONE IS TELLING YOU HOW YOU FEEL (RANT)

As we live “OUR” life, there will be some great moments, some terrible moments, and a whole lot of moments that are in between. “It goes without saying”(I RANT ON THIS SAYING), SO, hopefully this is the only time I say something after that statement. haha

It’s always the extremes that stand out and gather the most recognition. It’s ironic that my previous statement has the phrase “goes without saying”, because thats exactly what we want for those moments, yet it’s those moments people feel most compelled to say something to us. If things are extremely low, even though I’m not feeling that way or whatever these people project onto saying they know how you feel, or whatever drama talk that they are more bossed about emotional than the person experiencing it. Try and tell them “YOU’RE NOT WORRIED OR UPSET IN ANYWAY” and they keep going!!!!!!! Telling you that you are upset, angry, or whatever lol….. Sometimes they actually make you lol….. Again, this is when you rather “it goes without saying” be applied to these situations, because you really don’t want to hear their daytime tv programing psychological profiling expertise on you —- lol

For me, it doesn’t matter if it is a moment of greatness or moment of misfortune. Those are only possible to experience and feel through my perception, not by any observer and should not solicit any advice or opinions to someone who has not asked. The most important people in your life are there and offering conversation throughout the majority of events in your life, while the unimportant/acquaintances are right up to the front line to contribute when your are at extremes. I can not speak for everyone, but, I do not seek praise for achievements nor sympathy for misfortunes. I WOULD LIKE EVERYONE UNDERSTAND  some things that might appear as achievements are actually misfortunes to me as well as some things appearing as misfortunes are actually achievements. THIS IS REAL IMPORTANT ON MANY DIFFERENT TOPICS THAT PEOPLE SHOULD NOT TO PROJECT WHAT THEY THINK PEOPLE ARE FEELING! BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FEELING, EVEN BY SOME CHACE YOU DO.,.,.,ok LOL DON’T TELL THEM HOW THEY FEEL.. I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY MOST OF US ALL AT SOMETIMES HAVE DIFFICULTIES FIGURING OUT OURSELVES HOW WE FEEL, AND THAT IS OKAY. THERE WAS SOMETHING ELSE I WANTED TO SAY, BUT I’LL JUST LEAVE IT THERE. When opinions are needed, I will ask without hesitation.
