Word of the Month 36 Comments

Just yesterday I was having a conversation about how words matter.  Essentially the females in via my social networks said that:

actions speak louder than words”

I have written a little bit about using words to expressing ourselves about this time last year. And essentially most people disagreed with me.

One of you even quoted the bible to dispute my claim. Apparentlya man of understanding holds his tongue.’ Good thing I believe that the bible was written by men, the hypocrisy.

This week a friend of my noticed that I used the word ‘essentially’ to the exhaustion point. Wow, he was right but this is not the first time this happened. Every other month someone is complaining about a certain word that I am using for no apparent reason. My little brother said something to me once… only people with lack of vocabulary use the word ‘like’ for everything.

Like like … you know… those California blonds. It’s like duh I don’t have words in my head so I will put the word ‘like’ everywhere; except mine are usually words that with end with ‘ly.’

I always loved ‘apparently,’ that’s one word I can’t live without. Apparently, it fits everywhere like effectively.  As a designer, when I have to judge designs ‘That logo is effectively designed’ sounds so much more sophisticated than ‘l like that one.’

That is what clients say to me once I submit some options.

Someone somewhere said that good writing is dead, but good writing didn’t die with JD Salinger, its everywhere with the Facebook status and the Tweets.

    I can tell you enjoyed reading “The Catcher in the Rye”. Something in HS freshman made me read it like in one seating. I think that’s when my like was invented..

    Never imagined that the Catcher was Mr. Salinger’s memoire and manifesto

    As much I enjoyed some of the articles here, it makes me really sad when I see people ridicule the bible audaciously;

    “Bible is written by men Inspired by God“..that is what I believe.

  10. 10 Nolawi

    Lol EP I am sorry but I did not lie at all. It is in fact written my man, regardless of the inspiration. And no religion can ever deny that.

  11. 11 anonx

    em: If you can consider Mr. Salinger silence as a writer a political act, disdain and revolt againt the “phony,” that silence was shadowed in the Catcher…the line about how he would use his dough. One article I read called the book ‘Manifesto of the disenchanted.’

  12. 12 temelkach

    whats so sophisticated about wordiness…

  13. 13 Nolawi

    It gives your character depth.

  14. 14 Nightingale

    @ Dinich:
    Makes the two of us…

  15. 15 Jkhan

    It’s always good to hear to hear some one other than my self say that Bible is written by man. Nolawi i’d be interested to see what reaction you get it you write about religion.

  23. 23 Nightingale

    OMG he is back! Is this the same Endalc or a wannabe?….lol

    I have one question for you Endalc, awkeh new weyis kemereh new? I would understand it better if you answered in Amharic.

    You know what though, I understood two things from all the comments you wrote. First, you don’t have a job…. No offense here but No wonder! :) Second, you once commented that she took your number and never called you (no wonder again!). BTW it is NUMBER not NOBER and oh… If I may, you were waaaaaaaaaaay way out of the subject!

  24. 24 Leo

    Endalc, write in Amahric or shut the hell up. I think he is writing like this just to annoy bernosoch.

  25. 25 Nolawi

    i am working on blocking a bunch of different ip addresses… it has to be one by one… i can block the whole sudan…

  26. 26 ep

    “delete comments” not possible??

  27. 27 helen

    Come on people, it is not that serious. He is not being offensive, he hasn’t insulted anybody and I dont think he has broken any of Bernos’ rules. I don’t think being “annying” to a few people is a good enough reason to block him. You dont have to read his comments if he annoys you so much. I dont think he should be blocked.

  28. 28 anonx

    Exactly what helen said!

    I never know what the guy is talking about; I dont always try to figure out what he says–best I can do is see him as an abstract poet. And not one person has so far stated a reasonable complaint to block Endalc. Whatever your feelings against the guy, live with it–others live with you.

    Some owe him an apology for trying to banish him as if you own the cyberspace… this aint your mama’s house.

  29. 29 wudnesh

    I can understand why you’d block endalk, but why did u block me? mts
