Michal's meditating on the notion of beefing up his terrific Fiction Corpus with a book about the fine arts; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the soundness of enacting English as the international community's second language. I don't regard highly the conventional approach by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Enhancing one's knowledge of a language isn't like developing a more comfortable horse collar. A language - a common language - isn't merely a tool that you can teach yourself to employ with greater amounts of precision. A living tongue can't be dissected from the shared logic of a circle of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching a man to recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. An informed instructor must develop a strategy for introducing it; the wisest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe words on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying size and consistency. They could include anything from a book about literature to a collection of top fiction novels. I lost many a night forging my "ponderous" Fiction Corpus to form a special type of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in many different forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have drawn up a million words and I have scrutinized them, reshaping them - not merely to teach an American language but to reveal the human soul, and to propel that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Thanks

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word thanks in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word thanks, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word thanks is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Thanks in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

For reasons unknown to him, your father was never called. Sapper was called, then rejected by the Medical Board. He was 'Category D,' thanks to his various illnesses and poor constitution. Your father was never even before the medical board. He slipped right through the Draft Commission's greedy little fingers. It wasn't until he was planning to leave for Mars that Jesus found out why.

Verse 495 from the chapter called Adolescence

The whole day was spent on the battlefield. The first day, my excuse had been the mellophone; on the second day, Mass; the third day, she ran away; on the fourth, I was unprepared. Saying goodbye might have been awkward, but, near the end - or, rather, what I felt like should be the end, thanks to my rumbling stomach (your mother seemed to be suppressing her appetite) - I steered the conversation toward your mother's musical talents, which she claimed were, in terms of instrument familiarity, very broad (thanks to her mother's insistence), but which, in terms of quality, she also claimed were, on the whole, rather meager, if not embarrassing.

"Is that also your mother's fault?"

Verses 1011-1012 from the chapter called Bohemia

The Reserve Army division (whose general staff headquarters had been placed in Treblinka) was supposed to be preventing terrorists from joining up with their brethren in Poznan (to the north) or else from filtering through the southwestern Polish countryside towards the nearest spaceport around, located a few miles south of Warsaw. The Reserve Army, in the few weeks since Wroclaw had fallen under terrorist siege, had made several very important and surprising accomplishments: it had finally stopped favoring Germany and German interests; it had finally looked past the so-called 'Looney Triangle' of Hamburg, Bremen, and Berlin; it had finally considered the possibility that terrorists were being manipulated (or else directly controlled) by an agent or agents whose agendas had very little in common with terrorists' traditional goals of killing Americans and their allies - after all, what the hell were they doing on planet Earth? They had plenty of soft targets in outer space and especially in Earth's orbit - they were consciously neglecting them. That made no sense whatsoever. The Reserve Army finally deployed two divisions east. As an afterthought, one was sent down to Silesia, while the main contingent made a beeline to the capital. Thanks to them, Jesus found his way out.

Verse 8 from the chapter called Bohemia

More than one Russian oil company raised itself an independent or 'independent but attached' battalion, just to gain itself a seat in the Presidium. For almost the same reason, Krupnik Holding was doing more than its fair share of recruitment. The Polish government, beleaguered with its own problems, and having very little to do in the way of oil, was totally uninterested in Panzer-Tank's privateering. Apart from a certain Polish educational institution, which possessed oil fields in Baku thanks to an ancient and once lost but then recovered endowment, Krupnik Holding was the only organization in Poland involved in the war effort. But instead of just pumping money into Panzer-Tank's war chest, Krupnik Holding was also raising troops. The prevailing theory among Jesus's coterie, considering that Panzer-Tank's daughter Zoe was engaged to be married to Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's son, was that the Krupniks were trying to accumulate enough votes in the Presidium to offset the Russian influence that might hamper Panzer-Tank's own interests. Thus, the Guderians and Krupniks were allying against the Russian threat, a situation which resulted in one dead Baron Cohen-Krupnik with Russian bullets in his head. But this was only theory.

Verse 216 from the chapter called Security

"Sapper?"

"That's right."

"Alright," I said. "Thanks."

Usage of Thanks in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

NIKE: Hey, they like a good deal when they see one.

LUKA: He thinks he is making a good deal; I tell him he is crazy.

NIKE: Luka and I are going into business together. We're partners, aren't we?

LUKA: Don't touch me.

ANDY: So what's the deal?

NIKE: Oh, wouldn't you like to know?

LUKA: It is stupid; you don't want to know.

ANDY: Well, I wouldn't be surprised.

NIKE: Oh, thanks.

ANDY: But I don't know whom to trust.

ANDY: You know what? I have the answer for that: thanks to Mr. Franciszek Chopin. Come, sit down: I'll show you.

ANDY: But, of course.

INDIE: I hope I understand.

ANDY: You will.

INDIE: What is it?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 14, Accounting for the Weightiness of a Kiss, Paragraphs 6-11

They were able to use the defendant's argument against her, and turning their judgment on her - even though hers was not the burden of proof - they decided how lovely and just it would be to drown her defense to death by inundating their own decision with frivolous remarks. Mindful of nothing but their own supremacy, the opinion of the Supreme Court seems to be, without question, a comprehensive network of sweeping proclamations and inappropriate accusations, undeniably interspersed here and there with a ridiculous supposition and irrelevant predictions - all couched, unquestionably, in the most superfluous and grandiose verbiage - that serves irrefutably to obscure its own hollowness and its lack of any rational argument, which, thanks to the genius of our Federal system, has incontrovertibly worked a deep and scarring hardship on our tradition of jurisprudence.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 17, The Role of the Judicious Mind, Paragraph 3, Clauses 1-2

I began to wonder whether Luka might not be as timid, or shall we say, as easily persuaded, as the man who shares both his name and his friendship to Nike - that is to say, his potential counterpart in America. It would prove quite a success for Nike, because that creature which we call Luke, after befriending, or shall we say, becoming side-kick to Nike, became sort of a lackey for everyone - until of course, the situation became so egregious that even Nike felt sorry for him, and he began forcing himself to treat Luke with a little more respect - but, unlike Luke, Luka is not an insecure young man: he is a man approaching middle age, with technical expertise in computers and programming, a skill that continues to give him steady employment (for the time being, he says) but which up till now has granted him a sizeable income, and - thanks to France - plenty of vacation, which means that Luka has also pursued his favorite hobby quite seriously, leading to his present claim of status as gentleman-farmer, which Nike can only jokingly dispute, since his current partner has indeed accumulated plenty of produce and livestock, gradually investing less of his time in programming and more of his money into establishing a lively homestead outside of Paris - a very attractive location, especially for a household whose most recent member is a cousin of Nike's, a man who - as we know - is not only in Paris with nothing to do, but who appreciates the sweetly buzzing sound of success, and there is no doubt that Luka will soon outgrow his current small-holdings, especially if both Nike and his cousin have something to do with it.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 3, Comparing Men, Paragraph 7

"Well," said Macy, "Lynnhaven was a very famous oyster - it's a river, actually, in Virginia: Lynnhaven. But it got so polluted that the oyster was declared inedible during the Seventies - all thanks to a little something called 'fecal contamination,' which is to say, dog shit - well, mostly dog shit. And, human shit." It was amazing how attractive Macy was when he was talking about shit.

Gog gave the Hellenes thanks. He invited them to a feast. In his tent, they dined and drank with him. They marveled at his consort. Through her headdress of gold coins and chains, they caught sight of her eyes. They had never seen such a woman. "Those eyes," they whispered amongst themselves. "They are like the seeds of the amygdala [i.e. the almond tree]. Truly, she is a queen of unparalleled beauty."

Nike laughed. "Keep your eyes open. Tell me if you see her." He took a deep drag from the pipe. He held it. He held it some more. He kept holding it. Rothko checked his watch. Nike exhaled. "This is good," he said. "I think I'm done." He offered the pipe to Rothko.

FLETCHER: Oh, Money! God of first fruits! Bringer of knowledge! Harvester of truth! Where would Man be without thy cold kindness? Give me your hand. Let the lorikeets squeak out the rhythm of our steps. We'll dance a polonaise. I'll sashay you around the South Pacific. Who could prove to be a better partner? No man could be as faithful; no woman either. Even if she bleed by the moon, her temper is not as mild. Obedience notwithstanding, her character can seem, at times, positively restive. Feistiness is a woman's most vicious virtue. It can burn a man's pride even while it warms his heart. In truth, a man who marries money is liable to finding a bed so stiff the kingfisher would laugh. Without it, one would cry at night like the ghost bird. Thanks to money, nature is Man's slave. Weathering the vicissitudes of fortune, the wealthy man works the ground for as long as the ground does not work him. When that day comes, let's hope that our money has not defrauded us of our nature.

Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others.
