Michal dismisses the viability of augmenting his trifling Fiction Corpus with a history of educational reform; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the feasibility of legislating English as a global standard. I do reject the prevailing blueprint with which English is taught.Pointer

Enriching one's command of a language isn't like launching a more flexible variety of bamboo. A language - a common language - isn't merely an instrument that you can teach yourself to use with greater amounts of precision. A shared tongue cannot be split from the philosophical currents of a society 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.

To make a pupil recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A good instructor has to prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words based on a specific corpus, a body of written works of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus can contain anything from a book about literature to many truly interactive stories. I forged my "ordinary" Fiction Corpus in order to form a different kind 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 drafted a million words and I have evaluated them, reframing them - not just to teach American vocabulary but to reveal the human spirit, and to goad that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Sounds

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 sounds in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word sounds, 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 sounds is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Definition of SoundsMargo on a trampoline

The word sounds usually refers to at least some level of noise but that's not always the case since the basic idea is receiving an impression from a pressure wave and the lack of a pressure wave can still create an impression. It can be used to describe the habitual act of a third person who makes a kind of noise or any third party that makes an impression. It can be used to directly describe a third person especially when you haven't actually met that person and you're basing your description entirely on the impression created by another person's description.

Usage of Sounds 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.

"Alright," I laughed. "Sounds good."

In the meanwhile, my appetite came back.

Verses 254-255 from the chapter called Bohemia

"I don't know," I said. "It sounds like a serious problem for your fiancé."

Verse 613 from the chapter called Bohemia

"The problem is that most priests like telling people what to do: unfortunately, the Polish priest isn't very good at it. More often than not, he sounds like he's giving orders: like he's in the army. He's imperious and impatient. He never tolerates insubordination - and, because most people aren't under his command, he likes to pick on his own troops. The Polish priest thinks he's the last defense against their corruption, their cowardice and negligence. He is their leader - their true chief - and, usually, he makes for the worst of Catholics. It's every faithful man's duty to make the Polish priest humiliate himself.

Verse 676 from the chapter called Security

In those days, there was a brief craze for communal flagellation. Flagellant processions were commonplace in the town of Treblinka for about five weeks. They began after a certain Jesuit from Italy came to speak at St. Hedwig's. During a strange and mostly tedious homily, which was barely being translated by the pastor, this Jesuit stripped himself naked (down to the waist), threw himself onto the tomb of Henry II (the Bearded), grabbed onto his scourge (which came out from nowhere) and started beating himself. There was silence but for the sounds of his whip. Blood was everywhere. "It was incredible," said the fortunate ones who saw it. "He kept doing it: right through the Eucharist. He didn't stop until every last person was done." After the Mass, people who prostrated themselves in front of the altar were beaten by the Jesuit. They were instructed in the mystic ways of flagellation. Everyone present was welcomed. There was a long, organizational meeting held in the presbytery, and the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament was formed.

Verse 430 from the chapter called Adolescence

He moved two steps. The door opened. Turning around, I saw myself in the mirror. I lowered my weapon. Hurry up, Stalin - I thought to myself - I'm a sitting duck. I thought I heard a drawer open, but then I thought: it was just the door. I heard the faint sounds of music. DO IT NOW it whispered. The mirror moved. In it, I saw the flash of a raising arm. I turned and dodged.

BOOM! went the Krupnik.

After thanking her, I told Indiana I remembered giving Albert a CD for Christmas not so long ago. "Yes," she said, "the Rusalka. He really likes it. But I don't know where it is. I wish I had time to look for it." Sure enough, when I opened the carousel, there she was: Renée Fleming and the Czech Philharmonic. I cursed myself for not checking earlier. But then I had to brace myself, and prepare my fragile psyche to endure the back-to-back sounds of Dvořák, National Anthems of the World, and best of all, Soap Opera's Favorite Wedding Music - all in heavy rotation. By the end of that first day of painting, I was crazier than Indiana could ever be. I was singing to the moon, high up in the deep sky: mĕsíčku na nebi hlubokém, formez vos bataillons! marchons! marchons to the alter!

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

The car stopped in front of a modest module. It didn't seem like the actual police station. Tatum wondered if it were some kind of annex. The rooms were small. The man seated Tatum at a desk in one of the offices. An unusually large Manga person entered.

It said, "Shleeplaptip-bzz-kk-sh-kk." The slurping sounds were supposed to be words.

"Are you sure it was a woman?"

"Her tits were falling out of her crop top. She's dressed like a nun."

"Sounds kinky."

"Women played it before they took the men's game. It's a shame you abandoned it. Netball is a very democratic sport. For example, you can only hold onto the ball for three seconds. Everybody has to stay in her zone. There's no dribbling. You have to keep passing. It's all about out-maneuvering your opponent. It takes skill and endurance, not strength."

Debbie chuckled. "It sounds like the perfect sport for you, hubby."

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

ALICE: Where is she?

KOKOMO: In what seems like paradise: Western Samoa.

ALICE: I thought you liked it here.

KOKOMO: I do. I can't help being homesick. Norfolk is small. Between the locals and the tourists, I think I've had enough.

ALICE: I understand.

KOKOMO: There aren't so many tourists back home. The islands are big. Half the land is forest.

ALICE: It sounds nice.

KOKOMO: It's a mixed blessing. Few tourists means fewer crowds but also less money.

ALICE: Do a lot of Samoans emigrate?

KOKOMO: They do. It's different for me. I'm half European. My father's from Vladivostok.

KOKOMO: I couldn't agree more.

ALICE: Luke was a real ladies' man before he met me. I practically had to jump into bed with him just to get kissed.

ALICE: I got tired of waiting for him to make a move.

KOKOMO: In the end it did pay off.

ALICE: Sometimes you have to make things crystal clear.

KOKOMO: If only it were that simple.

ALICE: It is. Haven't you ever told Fletch how you feel?

KOKOMO: I like to pretend that I have - but I haven't.

ALICE: Do it. There's no sense in waiting. If you wait too long, you might not be around to say anything. That reminds me: Luke and I are leaving tonight. That letter he got from his manager was definitely bad news for me.

(ALICE and FLETCHER exit. LESBIAN and MS. JACKSON enter with their tea.)

MS. JACKSON: Tell me more about Egypt. You were saying something about locusts.

LESBIAN: When I arrived in November the country was under attack. Locusts were everywhere: in the north, in the south, in the east, in the west. Farmers who couldn't afford pesticides were burning tires to survive. It just so happened I arrived in Cairo at the exact moment that the swarm was passing through on its way to the Red Sea.

MS. JACKSON: Where did they come from?

LESBIAN: West Africa. They crossed the Sahara to get there. They were very hungry. They would fall onto your plate and get stuck in your glass. By the time I got to Aswan, the regional governor offered a two hundred Egyptian pound reward for any information leading to the destruction of a swarm.

MS. JACKSON: Did you find one?

LESBIAN: No.

MS. JACKSON: Does that sort of thing happen often? A swarm of locusts sounds so biblical.

LESBIAN: The very next year I took a trip to Hawai'i. They were suffering from a gall wasp invasion.

MS. JACKSON: What's a gall wasp?

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

After my mother died I went to visit her homeland. On my own. My father didn't want to do it. He was busy. I flew into the capital. I don't know how to spell the name. It sounds like a drunk guy slurring the word casino. It's appropriate. Not only did I drink a lot of booze but I took my chances with it. The same turned out to be true for the food.

"Why not?"

"What if it was all part of Khrushchev's plan? What if he encouraged Hungary to throw herself towards the West?"

"That sounds kinky."

"As a three-quarter Austrian, it should be. As a quarter American, with a last name like Stewart, Andreas sounds silly."

"Too many 's's."

"Only the Italians spell the name without an 's.' Italian men are comfortable with their masculinity. They don't mind the English-speaking world thinking they're women."

"Calling you Nike is Andrea's revenge."

"It's short for Nikita."

"That's a beautiful name. It's not manly."

"It means 'unconquerable.'"

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might ease one's fears depending on your outlook

My father never lied to my mother about going up to see his old girlfriend. He lied to me. So I wouldn't say anything. So my mother could find out about it later. From the receipts. It was part of the grand scheme. To bring things to a head. To back up the toilet of their lives. To bring up the festering crap they had tucked away in their basement all these years. Like the accusation that my father had raped my mother. On some night twelve years ago. When she had said no. And he had done it anyway. I wanted to laugh but my wife was there. Her father raped her mother. Allegedly. My wife is convinced its true. Despite only having heard one side of it. If it were as bad as it sounds I doubt her parents would still be together. But they are. Like my parents. They've reconciled. For all intents and purposes they're a happily married couple. They hold hands in the street. While my wife wont sleep with me. Because on some rainy afternoon two years ago I told her I wanted to rape her.

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
