Guess, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to study the possibility of strengthening his massive Fiction Corpus with a history of social reforms; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I have faith in the potency of upholding English as the international community's second language. I don't trust in the demoralizing approach by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Fortifying a person's handiness with a language isn't like introducing a better pair of eyeglasses. A language is not just a tool that you can learn to use with a greater amount of precision. A common language can't be parted from the prevailing culture 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.

To make a student recite English is to deprive her of its cultural context. A proper educator must develop a plan for introducing it; the discerning student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of writing of varying size and consistency. This corpus may include everything from a book about literature to some truly brilliant literature novels. I labored on my "sizable" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special kind 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 framed a million words and I have indexed them, reformulating them - not simply to teach the English tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to goad that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Channel Indulgence Into ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

One week after arriving in Europe, I met a woman in the sauna on the ground floor of the large villa she shared with her ex-husband. Four weeks later she was sharing a small rain-soaked tent with me in Vienna, our little gas-fired stove barely capable of boiling a cup of water. It wasn't until we reached Croatia that we decided to invest in a large electric kettle. It was quite the luxury and it made me very happy.

I had come to Europe to document people practicing naturism. Preliminary arrangements had been made to meet with an Egyptian nudist visiting the Continent and there was some kind of Pan-European gathering scheduled to take place in Croatia. I had arranged for an assistant to come along with me to help with anything I needed, but when her passport was stolen the night before we were supposed to leave, my plans went awry. I decided on something less ambitious. I would visit a naturist sauna in the city of Bielsko-Biala, Poland which I had just found on the internet. When I got there, I met Margo.

From America I brought with me the American can-do spirit. She saw the car that I had bought, the terrible camp stove I had borrowed, and my sundry canned goods and challenged me to make-do. In my optimism I assured her that if we lacked for anything I would make up the difference. She assured me that if she lacked for anything she would find her way to the nearest airport and fly home. Luckily that never happened.

As far apart culturally as we may have been, we spent 6,000 miles in one car. We spent over 40 nights in one tent. We started learning how to listen to each other. We started learning how to accept our differences and how to let them help us instead of driving us apart. Slowly but surely, we started learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Guess

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 guess in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Guess 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.

When coalition forces opened fire on Dhagbod ships, the ships went to A/COMP - that was confusing. Then the Martian Governor-general stepped in again, promising that he would persuade Sadatmo to withdraw peaceably or else, thereby saving the coalition the awful expense of having to invade occupied stations. Nobody knew what the Martian Governor had up his sleeve, but, if he succeeded, Sadatmo would remain in power with his forces intact - what that meant for Mars was anybody's guess. In the end, the coalition was undeterred. The United Nations wouldn't budge, and the Martian Governor backed off.

Verse 126 from the chapter called Childhood

There was a moment. Then Stalin said, "I guess so."

Verse 106 from the chapter called Bohemia

The Supreme Chamber of Control appointed a special procurator to deal with the issue. It wasn't long before Jesus heard that the special procurator wanted to talk - to negotiate - with him. Jesus laughed. "I guess you really do have to kill someone before you get people's attention around here. Alright," he said. "Let's meet."

Verse 4 from the chapter called Vows

The problem of finding out when the shipment occurred was, to a certain extent, easy enough. Of course, it was necessary to assume that the shipment took place not only during the terrorist insurgency in Germany, but also along the same route that regular Polish army shipments took, and that the vehicle used was a diesel truck. These were all safe assumptions, but they were assumptions nonetheless. The arms were from a factory in Brno - that was for sure: the serial numbers didn't lie - but whether or not the arms were first sent somewhere else before entering Poland was anybody's guess. During the terrorist insurgency, most borders had been closed. If anyone had been trying to smuggle 'misplaced' arms, the safest way would've been to disguise them as a regular army shipment. That was the premise on which Jesus's effort was based.

Verse 33 from the chapter called Security

Your mother shrugged her shoulders. "I don't know. I just wanted to see, I guess."

One day, Tae realized a woman was crying in Kwon's tent. He crossed his friend's field. He peered through the entrance. He could see Kwon consoling Do. Tae made a sound. Kwon came outside. He frowned. He said, "Do went for a walk in the hills. She caught Hong with Kong."

Tae's eyes went wild. "The boy?" Kwon nodded. "The old man?" Kwon nodded. "They were?" Kwon nodded. Tae laughed. "Six men. Six women. I guess they're lucky to have each other."

Usage of Guess in Sorry Ms. Jackson

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.

FLETCHER: You assume I lied about that.

MS. JACKSON: I've never heard you accused of anything.

FLETCHER: No one's ever gossiped to you about me or what I do or whom I see?

MS. JACKSON: Why are you being so contrary?

FLETCHER: I'm just surprised you didn't hear anything about me and Mrs. Menzies making out behind St. Barnabas. I guess the McCoy brothers kept their end of the bargain. They extorted five hundred and fifty-two dollars from me in exchange for promising to keep quiet. Cash, by the way, is very hard to come by on this island. What could I do? I couldn't have the usual gossip substantiated by solid testimony from a pair of young, sweet, innocent-looking boys, could I?

– ACT I, lines 122-126

ALICE: 'I to not fear your poat.' Is that right?

FLETCHER: The Tahitians were unfamiliar with certain consonants, including the letter, 'b.' I don't presume to know how Susannah really talked; this is my best guess.

ALICE: 'Tapu' is taboo?

FLETCHER: Tapu is the original pronunciation. 'Susannah, every time I invite you to my boat, you run away as if you were frightened. Tell me: is my boat tapu?'

ALICE: 'No.'

FLETCHER: 'Why do you run?'

ALICE: 'I to not run.'

FLETCHER: 'You certainly don't look happy. For God's sake, it's only a canoe - just like your people use.'

ALICE: 'My pepoo are Enrish now.'

FLETCHER: 'Of course they're English; that's beside the point. I want to know why you're afraid of my boat.'

KOKOMO: Admiring my feet again?

FLETCHER: I happen to like your feet.

KOKOMO: They're too big.

FLETCHER: That's nonsense.

KOKOMO: They're too bony.

– ACT I, lines 1294-1302

FLETCHER: I lost my virginity to a married woman. Her husband was abroad - had been for several months. She did plan on joining him, but she loved sex - she admitted it - more than she loved her husband. Then again, I didn't really know the man. Maybe he was the same way. Maybe he was a scoundrel. Some women are just crazy. I was doing work on her balcony at the time. She would undress in front of me through the window. She even let me watch her masturbate. I was around eighteen years old. She was forty. I had no idea what to do. I couldn't do anything, anyway. I was surrounded by my crewmates. When we finished, we packed up and we left. I didn't see her for several weeks. In due course, we bumped into each other at one of the local pubs. She asked me how I was doing. I told her I was fine. I bought her a few drinks. She asked me to take her home. I did. On her front porch, as she was removing her keys from her pocket, she dropped something.

ALICE: A condom.

FLETCHER: How did you know?

ALICE: I guessed.

FLETCHER: Is that something you've done?

ALICE: I've never done it. I assume, if you want to get your point across, that's the most powerful way.

FLETCHER: It's true. I couldn't help myself. I had to go up to her room.

ALICE: Did you like it?

FLETCHER: I loved it - as it was happening. When we were finished, I felt as dirty as a pig. She wanted me to come every Wednesday afternoon like clockwork.

ALICE: Did you?

– ACT I, lines 642-651

(GREY GOOSE exits. ALICE and FLETCHER enter with scripts in hand.)

FLETCHER: Thank you for doing this. I appreciate it immensely.

ALICE: It's my pleasure. I love supporting new plays and new playwrights. Is this a comedy or a tragedy?

FLETCHER: I suppose it's more of a romance.

ALICE: Which part am I playing?

FLETCHER: You are Tera-ura. I'm playing Thursday October: Fletcher Christian's son.

ALICE: Cute name.

FLETCHER: He was named after his birthday, despite the fact that he was born on the third day of the week. I guess Wednesday October would've sounded more like a girl's name.

ALICE: Am I a Tahitian woman?

FLETCHER: You're not just any Tahitian woman; you're my ancestor.

Usage of Guess 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.

Sarah shrugged. She said, "You can't stop a girl from hoping I guess." I realized Parker and I weren't so different after all. I thought of Jeff's confession in the stable. I wondered what peoples impressions were of me. They probably thought me cold. Frigid. I can forgive them.

Time was called. 73.2 percent. Sir Lewis dashed down the number. It was a decent guess. It might be worth partial credit. He looked to his teammates. They were dumbfounded. The dork and the chubby Asian girl from the community college. Idiots.

– from “The Skirt on the Proctor,” a kid story about love in an unforgiving world

I guess we were fated, you know. Me and my brothers. We came out first though. Not those other guys. That's why we won. That's why I won. I always said I was the oldest. I never had any proof though, you know. I mean we were probably switched around ten times when we were babies. So who was to say. But I always believed I was the eldest. You know. Now nobody can argue with me.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story based on principles of honor coming straight out of Roman mythology

"What did you see?" asked Proctor.

The guy shrugged. "A man in a blue jacket. Baseball cap. Sunglasses. Medium build."

"What about the car?"

The man shrugged. "I don't know. A gray SUV. Could've been silver, I guess. You know they keep a key in the flower pot."

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring a policeman put in a weird position

I guess you can blame the fact that we were two sets of triplets, you know. People thought that was like a sacred thing. A sign from God. Two sets of triplets on opposite sides of the war. Who better to sort out the whole thing. Make it easy. What do they call it. A trial by fire. Fire from our guns. I thought it was an idea. I don't know. It made sense.
