Smile, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's considering the soundness of enhancing his considerable Fiction Corpus with a treatise on what is reform; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the concept of employing English as a worldwide standard. I don't believe in the unsurprising approach by which English is taught.Pointer

Polishing a person's mastery of a language isn't like making a stronger brace. A language - a spoken tongue - is not merely an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A shared language can not be disunited from the competing values of a clan 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 rob him of its cultural context. A capable instructor has to develop a plan for introducing it; the discerning pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language based on a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying size and consistency. A corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to a whole collection of science fiction reviews. I lost many a sleepless night forging my "massive" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special sort 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 fashioned a million words and I have diagnosed them, reshaping them - not just to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to provoke that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Smile

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 smile in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Smile 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.

"We get you out of the army," said Jesus.

"Why?"

We smiled, Stalin and I.

Verses 40-42 from the chapter called Security

"You like grande cuisine," I said.

"Yes, very much. This work is wonderful. It's the most beautiful pièce montée in the world, I think. There's nothing like it, now or in the past. It makes Carême look like custard." Your grandfather smiled.

"What?"

"Carême. Antoine Carême? The nineteenth-century chef?"

"Yes, I know that. I didn't hear you."

"Antoine Carême would marvel at this. Look at this composition. It's grandiose. Look at how this pastry dough comes around here like that. Isn't that marvelous?"

"I think the chef must feel the justice of our cause."

"Yes, well, he's Polish just like you," said your grandfather. He smiled.

I smiled back. "He makes my nation proud," I said.

Verses 49-57 from the chapter called Childhood

Verse 233 from the chapter called Bohemia

I nodded. I was smiling a very wide smile.

"I can't do that," she said.

"Why not?"

Verses 829-831 from the chapter called Bohemia

I smiled. She laughed a fake laugh and walked away. Following her with my eyes, I watched her disappear into a faraway booth. Putting my shirt on, I noticed Tereska was still waiting for me nearby. She was too afraid to approach. I beckoned. She came forward. She didn't speak English.

Usage of Smile 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.

Weaving them all into long and masterfully composed narratives, Macy would begin with a deliberately subtle introduction: a thin smile and a whispering "Well, you know" exposition, which would lead to a mounting action, which, if successful, would culminate in a penetrating witticism: perhaps a skillful observation, one more or less encapsulating a common belief or sometimes a misconception, which would, if he were really on target, climax in a parody of character.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 5, Falling in Love, Paragraph 4, Clauses 8-9

I looked at Indiana - I looked, but she was already looking at me. She was smiling. I saw the smile come flashing across her face - a gentle smile. It told me not to worry. But, in the corner of my eye - don't look! I thought - but there in the corner: I saw Indiana's hand letting go, her other hand: it was letting go of her husband.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 13, Apprehension, Paragraph 5, Clauses 1-5

The zipper was being troublesome. Its teeth were stuck. Indiana's hand gave the beast a gentle tug, then a more violent one. She turned her head and saw me - no: she didn't see me: she looked at me. She caught my eyes. She smiled; I had no idea she could see me. I was staring blankly in the mirror.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 10, Clauses 1-7

We stood there for a very long second, I pointing, my body huddled together by the recoil of the pounce, my head back, face stretched with the promise of amusement, eyebrows lifting, eyes wide, my mouth still in its open smile. We were very close, and despite the fact that he looked nothing like Luke, looked much better in fact, it took me surprisingly long to bring myself to awareness. In that very long second, I took in the sharp lines of the boy's face, the symmetrically modest nose, the tender growth of a few days' neglected shaving, and yes, in that sense he did resemble Macy, but I was not aware of that, nor of the implications, and only near the end of that very long second did I begin to realize I was absurdly positioned and in no way ready to explain my behavior.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 3, Ambushing a Man, Paragraph 2, Clauses 3-6

MÉL: She would smile at me all the time. She would pet me and stroke my hair. She would touch me all the time. She touched my hand, my arm; she rubbed my back.

NIKE: Where was this?

MÉL: In the classroom: I was sitting by my desk in front of everyone. I would always sit in the front row.

NIKE: Oh, I see. Did you show off?

MÉL: Of course I would show off.

NIKE: What did you do?

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

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.

An official from the State Department came to see Shephard one day. The secretary told him, "Saylor? the lieutenant?" was "out to lunch." She rolled her eyes.

The visitor smiled. He had seen this attitude before. Wherever Shephard went, he left behind a trail of scorned women. They always refused to disguise their spite. He explained he was an old friend.

"I see." The woman went back to her nails.

"I'm sorry. When do you expect him?"

"How should I know? Ask his girlfriend."

Usage of Smile 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: Trouble. The Tahitians were already upset. They hadn't been given any land when the island was divided, not to mention the fact that some of them were being beaten. Naturally, they started plotting. What they didn't take into account was the fact that To-ofa-iti, the blacksmith's new wife, was not complaining. The blacksmith was important. That made her important. She started singing a song, the words of which went, "Why does black man sharpen axe? To kill white man." When Fletcher Christian heard that song, he grabbed his musket, ran to the Tahitians, charged them with their crime, and pulled the trigger. The gun misfired. Two of the men ran; the rest protested their innocence. They begged for a chance to take care of it. They decided they should try to poison To-ofa-iti's husband. He didn't fall for it. He was too smart. Ultimately, one of the Tahitian men pulled a pistol on him in the presence of his wife. Again, the gun misfired. The two of them started grappling on the ground. Who knows who would've won? To-ofa-iti, however, was not about to take chances. She picked up the pistol with her own two hands and bopped her husband squarely on the head.

ALICE: She killed him?

FLETCHER: Eventually. Things were deceptively quiet for a few weeks. It didn't take long for judgment to fall upon the poor blacksmith. The Tahitians shot him down like a pig. Ironically, that's what the other mutineers thought they were doing. Being scattered all over the island, each man heard the shots and naturally assumed that somebody was hunting. Most of them found out too late that they were the prey.

ALICE: How many of them were killed?

FLETCHER: On that day, now known as Massacre Day, five of the original nine mutineers were fatally shot. Fletcher Christian was next. He was standing in his garden. Both of his hands were on his spade. He looked up at the sky and smiled. He never saw it coming. They shot him right through the heart.

ALICE: How did the others survive?

FLETCHER: Jackson was shot through the neck but he lived.

ALICE: Incredible.

FLETCHER: It's a miracle. Ned Young slept through the whole thing. The women didn't want to wake him. They all liked him and they didn't want to see him get hurt, so they stood around his hut and guarded him. Eventually, though, even he had to get his hands dirty. The women wanted revenge on the Tahitians for killing their husbands. After Ned's consort chopped off the ringleader's head with an axe, he was made to go and shoot the last remaining rebel. That was the end of the bloodshed - not counting when he and Jackson got Quintal drunk and murdered him.

ALICE: It's so barbaric.

– ACT I, lines 616-625

FLETCHER: I didn't really care for him.

GREY GOOSE: Tom the anesthesiologist?

KOKOMO: He was funny.

GREY GOOSE: Douglas the airline pilot?

FLETCHER: At least he wasn't a doctor.

GREY GOOSE: Joe the Gynecologist?

KOKOMO: He made me smile.

GREY GOOSE: What about the oral and maxillofacial surgeon? The computer information systems manager? You were nothing before me. I made you.

FLETCHER: Kokomo will have to wear a burqa for the rest of her life around here. This was a Sunday operation before he came and screwed it all up. Do you know why you kept getting looks in town? It wasn't what he did; it was what he said. He had everybody on Norfolk thinking you had hired the best piece of faffy this side of Hawai'i. Some of them thought that you were in on it - that you were behind it all.

GREY GOOSE: This is some kind of gratitude.

It was too late. Guests were back in the room. I picked up the keys I dropped. My breasts were filling out my dress like curd in cheesecloth. I rushed towards my sweater. Nike sat on its edge. I had to pull it out from underneath him. We exchanged the evil eye. Nike smiled.

"Hungarians don't fast from meat on Christmas Eve," said Indiana. "It is the opposite. We take all day to make sausage - with garlic and paprika. The color is my favorite. It is like that wood - what do you call it?" She stroked the timber of the mantel. She whispered, "Darker than this." She turned towards the baseboard. She smiled. She reached to touch it. She didn't see the bucket of water. The cherry branch sticking out of it dropped to the floor. Grandmother gasped. Mother shook her head.

Bob smiled. He pointed to the neck. "Carotid," he said. "The guy bled out. You can't see it cause of the twist in the neck. It's a thing of beauty, isn't it?" The man was smiling like a whore on Tuesday. Proctor couldn't share the enthusiasm. He watched the body being lowered.

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

I asked Indiana if she remembered last Christmas. "My grandmother told us about looking up chimneys naked."

Indiana smiled. "What did you see?"

"In the chimney, I saw nothing. When I came out, I saw Nike standing in front of me."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might help overcome one's sense of discomfort depending on your outlook

Indiana gave us an embarrassed look. I smiled. I watched her slip the stick back into the bucket. Grandmother stretched out her hand. As usual, she was carrying a rag.

Indiana took it. She wiped the drops of water she spilled. She turned her head. "What did I do?" she asked. We chuckled.

Mother explained the custom of keeping a cherry branch next to the fireplace. If it bloomed on Christmas Eve, it would bring good luck.

"I guess it helps to know how long a branch takes to bloom," said Indiana.

The art show that defies abuse

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
