Van, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is weighing the idea of enlarging his run-of-the-mill Fiction Corpus with a fable about writing stories to read online; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the potential of legislating English as an international standard. I do doubt the unexciting methodology by which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Reinforcing one's know-how with a language isn't like pioneering a safer match. A language - a living language - isn't merely a tool that you can learn to manipulate with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue can not be fractured from the prevailing culture of a recognized nation 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 students to recite English is to rob them of its cultural context. A good instructor must develop a technique for introducing it; the insightful student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written works of various scope and consistency. A corpus could contain everything from a book about literature to some real horror stories. I burnt many candles developing my "trivial" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special type of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have constructed a million words and I have categorized them, reshaping them - not simply to teach an American language but to reveal the human spirit, and to prod that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Van

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 van in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Van 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.

From my seat in the middle of the booth, my view was unobstructed. I was gazing upon divine grace: the ultimate of mortal gifts - penultimate Gift! purest Womanhood! I was looking at Man's consternation, his pride, his instrument in Man's quest to be like God: to create! to love! to hold! But I did not yet know it. I was blinded by honor's undignified lust for vengeance. I sought my own brand of justice in that choked and choking room of self-conscious amusement, otioseness, and strife. I wanted to conquer, my child, not love. I looked upon that lovely figure with calculated intentions. I did not see her loveliness; I ignored her life, her needs, her desires, her hopes and dreams - they were unimportant. I saw myself and my own needs only, no matter what I claimed or thought I felt. I was not unimpaired; I was drunk: impatient: rushed by my own winds - not what I considered - and seriously so - to be the winds of destiny. Those were only breezes, unpredictable movements of air: the erratic impulses produced by circumstances in the landscape; they were not to be trusted. They were only whisperings - and if destiny had anything to do with them, they were only destiny's advances: wafting forward ideas and intimations, proposals, and the probability of misapprehension.

Verse 432 from the chapter called Bohemia

After what seemed like an eternity, Jesus took advantage of Zoe's restlessness and put his left arm around her waist. Again, Jesus had reached another dead end. The waist was nice for the time being - and Jesus celebrated - but he soon realized it wasn't a very good point from which to strike. More wiggling would be necessary.

Verse 631 from the chapter called Security

"I don't know," I said. "Is there a guy in a tree somewhere? You tell me. There were some white vans along the road this morning - do they belong to you?" I smiled.

"You do know who I am."

Verses 571-572 from the chapter called Bohemia

Jesus's proof came at dawn. In the coldest hour of night, he led his men to the top of St. Elizabeth's tower. But first, he had to rid it of terrorists. Standing in the northeast corner of Town Square, St. Elizabeth's had been occupied. At a height of sixty-three meters, the tower's cupola had no doubt given terrorists an excellent vantage point. At forty-six meters, the outside balcony wrapped itself around the tower completely, providing a panoramic view. Terrorist snipers hiding behind its parapet wall had harassed part of Stalin's platoon. Three of his fellow soldiers had died before the rest were captured. They wanted blood.

Verse 429 from the chapter called Arms

In those days, hundreds of Martian refugees were seeking asylum on Earth. Most of them were refused. Almost none of them had anything relevant to say about Mars's political situation. They were seeking life in peace and quiet, having escaped from the red planet, having survived the dangerous trip through space, and having almost nothing to say but that Mars was in chaos. Capitalists were incredulous, considering that Mars had the cleanest air and water, free land, and plenty of opportunities for growth. Despite the mysteries of the Revolution - and, perhaps, because of it - many people, especially Capitalists, were dying to go to Mars. They couldn't understand why anyone would want to leave: by then, terrorism was everywhere: it reared its ugly head in Spain, then France, then Germany. Pretty soon, it was going to be in Poland. Nevertheless, Poland accepted many of the Martian refugees. Unfortunately, before long, their lives would be in grave danger.

Usage of Van 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.

We were standing in a nice corner. The walls around us were high and windowless. Concrete was crumbling and cracking itself. There was a lot of rusted metal. The ground was littered. "You know what I like about big cities? I like these kinds of places: the buttholes and the bellybuttons." There was even some neglected shrubbery around us. It was bordering the crumbling concrete steps upon which Luka was seated. I placed my foot beside his on the lowest one. I started balancing my leg. I thought of the stairs outside our old apartment. I thought of the opium dealer - as a character from a New Comedy, with Luka, the poor yeoman; Anicetus, the corrupted son of an equis; and me, Andreas: the lowly manservant, the torch-bearing slave.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 14, Referencing the Past, Paragraph 16

The bathroom was much less filthy, and this, I thought, could only mean one thing: Luke probably had not been taking advantage of it - but I'm sure that you could think of other, equally plausible theories. Enough about Luke; I refrained from cleaning his bathroom - let's leave it at that. Letting the shower run, I washed out my mouth and sat down on the toilet.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 2, Letting It Steam, Paragraph 2, Clauses 1-3

The police were too busy setting people apart; they were not interested in bringing them together. But, hopefully, Nike could use this to his advantage. How could they know that he was the happiest man ever to grace their prison cells? They were oblivious to love. They were mechanicals - intelligent and tough-skinned beasts, some more intelligent than others, of course, but all of them insensible. They walked about on cloven-feet - even toed, perhaps, but heavy-handed.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 4, Falling in Love, Paragraph 3

MACY: But I want you to be honest about Giovanni. Tell me exactly what you were feeling, honestly.

ANDY: Alright: honestly. What do you want to know?

MACY: I want to know everything.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 1, Greenery & Land Reform, Section 3, Explaining Things Honestly in an Incomplete Way, Paragraphs 1-3

So, by the time he reached my groin, I have to admit: I was rock-hard. But that doesn't mean anything. My own hand will make me rock-hard - it doesn't mean I want to make love to it. And I certainly didn't want to make love to Giovanni. I didn't want his giant penis in my mouth or up my ass. I didn't want my humble penis penetrating any part of his body whatsoever. And that's why I told him to stop. I told him kindly, respectfully, and firmly: stop. And, however disappointed he was, he did respect my wishes. That was the end of that.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 1, Greenery & Land Reform, Section 3, Explaining Things Honestly in an Incomplete Way, Paragraph 4, Clauses 19-29

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.

Bei gathered her courage. She feigned excitement. She ran to tell Fu the news. Fu was, at first, suspicious. Her vanity soon got the better of her. They went to the beach. They encountered two creatures covered in mud. A chain of crab legs dangled over each of their eyes. Each of their heads was covered with a crown of claws. Fu whispered, "I don't like it."

Nobody cared what Lorenzo did. When a cherry tree was chopped down in the Bishop's orchard, nobody suspected him. "Who would do such a thing?" asked the concertmaster. Ferrari shrugged. He had his own business next to the Honorable Carmina's litter. Every time she came to the Bishop's palace to hear a concert, Ferrari escorted her home.

"I would be your servant," he whispered.

The man standing at the other end of the long room said nothing. He was looking through the window. He was watching Earth spin like a bowling ball in slow motion. He finally said, "Thank you for coming." He turned to look at Pat. "I know you don't like to be disturbed." His voice was low and measured. The name on the desk read Justice Doc Uzumaki.

"I figured it was important." Pat assumed the stance of a proud servant.

One time, Patsy came close to capturing his suspect. The man had suddenly vanished from his post at the Dai-Kannon when Patsy and Morimoto had shown up to question him. Giving fruitless chase through the streets of Ito, Patsy returned to his Tokyo hotel to find none other than Ranger Juanita. She had taken leave from the Park Service to join him. "That's very kind of you," said the young lieutenant.

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

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: I forgive you. Be a man once more.

FLETCHER: With a man's heart, I thank you. No longer must you fear my advances. The object of our intimacy has been achieved. I intend to follow your lead and pledge my life to the woman I love.

ALICE: Do I know her?

FLETCHER: You do. I love Kokomo with all my heart. My soul yearns for her soul's touch.

ALICE: In that case, let's finish these scenes in celebration of your restored manhood and your love for Kokomo.

FLETCHER: I know just the right page from which to start. 'What a blessed thing it is to confess! The firmly wound nut, when leashed to its bolt, will weather every blow. No strain is so big, no pressure so strong, no hand so steady, nor no patience so long that would eventually break the metal's hold when applied to just one end. It would turn forevermore in tantalizing defiance. Bring two solid hands together - with two worthy hearts - one to hold tight the bolt, the other to untwist his soul - and you shall feel the immediate release that with it brings joy, the work of resolution, and the ease which maketh that work seem slight.'

ALICE: Well proclaimed, poet!

FLETCHER: If only the rest were so good.

ALICE: I have no doubt it will be.

FLETCHER: As a show of thanks for your faith, I hereby expunge certain kisses from this scene, restoring to its solitary glory the one final kiss of the scene's end - if I may be so bold.

– ACT II, lines 194-203

FLETCHER: That's a good story.

MS. JACKSON: From what could be gathered.

LESBIAN: I was taken advantage of once. I was at the Kammermusiksaal one day - actually, it was the night: the evening. It was fall: late fall: October. I had just attended a concert - a very good one - chamber music: it's my favorite. Anyway, this was Berlin and everything is very neat there - at least in that part of the city: the cultural part with the museums and everything. I didn't think it dangerous just to cross the street: Tiergartenstraße - to take a stroll in the park - Tiergartenpark. It's not like it was that late or anything. It was October. Naturally, the days were short.

FLETCHER: And the nights were very long-winded.

MS. JACKSON: Fletcher!

LESBIAN: I'm sorry. I don't think it's going to be very good.

MS. JACKSON: Please continue, Homo.

LESBIAN: This man came up to me in an overcoat and exposed himself. Can you believe that?

FLETCHER: Nice.

ALICE: How big was it?

– ACT I, lines 180-189

ALICE: How do I stand up?

FLETCHER: Against the countless tourists or the countless women I've known?

ALICE: Both.

FLETCHER: You are the most beautiful, the most charming, and the most articulate woman I've ever had the privilege and the distinct pleasure of meeting.

ALICE: Liar.

FLETCHER: Why would I lie? I have no reason to lie.

ALICE: You are a flatterer.

FLETCHER: Why would I flatter?

ALICE: You're attracted to me.

FLETCHER: That's true. You are very observant.

FLETCHER: You couldn't help but think: wouldn't it be lovely?

GREY GOOSE: We understand.

FLETCHER: We want it ourselves.

FLETCHER: Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

Usage of Van in Miscellaneous Dingbats

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.

China is full of noise these days. People everywhere. Doing everything. Anything they can to make it. I know there's a cost to the churning. Families split apart. Like the Limas. Ten kids all over the world. San Jose. New York. Vancouver. London. Paris. Tokyo. All born in Hong Kong. If the rich can't keep it together what hope is there for the poor. I've seen the peasant families on TV. Parents who see their children once a year. Until the kids run away from their grandparents and find work in a bar somewhere.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that has been slightly embellished as far as I can recall

By the time Captain Orbitz returned to Alliance headquarters in the Solar System two things had happened. First his DNA was found at a raided underground Wiki-en meeting place on Mars. Second and more importantly the longest-serving courier in Alliance history with a record 32 trips across branes was officially declared lost. He entered a singularity in the Cygnus Arm and two hundred fifty milliarc-seconds later his ship's quantum entangler had yet to respond. There were no sightings of him at any manned transit points in either Alliance or Alliance-friendly territory. No wreckage was found. The man like so many interstellar travelers before him had simply vanished into the two-dimensional fracas known as inter-brane space. This made Orbitz not technically the oldest man in the Orion Arm but its first born citizen. His long dead mother had given birth to him thousands of years ago. It made him a celebrity.

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.
