Try, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's ruminating on the possibility of extending his weighty Fiction Corpus with a biography of nobel award winners; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the potential of exploiting English as a global standard. I don't believe in the lumbering manner in which English is taught.Pointer

Reinforcing a person's artfulness with a language isn't like bringing about a more valuable coin. A language - a spoken tongue - isn't just an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A shared language can not be disjoined from the professed knowledge 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.

Teaching a person to recite English is to deprive her of its cultural context. A capable instructor must have a strategy for introducing it; the insightful student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus can include everything from a book about literature to some really dark fiction. I lost many a night laboring on my "proud" Fiction Corpus to form a different sort 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 pieced together a million words and I have dissected them, reformulating them - not merely to teach a tongue but to describe the human soul, and to prod that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Try

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 try in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Try 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.

There was no way of fighting such a plague without guns and bullets and bombs. You could try reasoning with pirates; you could try sending them tons of grain and water and air and fuel to far-out relay stations built by once prosperous interplanetary shipping companies - but they had grain; they had water; they had air and fuel; they were sitting on top of piles of it. They starved themselves because it made them angrier; the angrier they got, the harder they fought in battle. That was their way of life. Their leaders were their leaders because they followed them. When they said, "Attack the Americans," they listened. They liked it. They wanted to conquer the entire solar system. Every little pirate boy dreamed of being a despot. Every little pirate girl dreamed of being a despot's mistress. They were sick with dreams - just like the Americans.

Verse 2 from the chapter called Bohemia

"Oh, quite right. Quite right. Do you interest yourself in gastronomy?"

I smiled. "I like to eat."

"Yes, quite right. Then you must try these," he said, pointing.

"Sweetbreads: yes, I'm familiar."

"Yes. How about these?"

"Those are macaroons."

"And these?"

"I'm Polish, not stupid." Your grandfather laughed. "Yes, that was a joke: thank you."

"Hitler Panzer-Tank the Third," he said, offering me his hand. I shook it.

"Nice to meet you," I said - and smiled, not introducing myself. It was awkward.

"Yes, well, the feeling's mutual."

Verses 38-48 from the chapter called Childhood

"That's not the point: we've got mileage that we can't waste. I would have to clear it with division headquarters first - they're the ones who are waiting for the arms, man. I can't do it."

"Why don't you at least try?"

Verses 220-221 from the chapter called Bohemia

That's when Sadatmo struck. There was much petroleum to be gained, and besides, A/COMP workers had been trying to incite his employees. Everyone was on Sadatmo's side: Martians, the Americans: nobody wanted to see the A/COMP workers win. But Sadatmo didn't make it: A/COMP was simply too much for him to swallow. Dhagbod was finished: after eight years of fighting, the belligerents agreed to a UN-brokered cease-fire. Two years passed and nothing happened. Then, all of a sudden, peace talks were held: Sadatmo was stirring.

Usage of Try 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.

I wanted to be holding Indiana's hand. I wanted my hand to be free: free to wipe away her wetness. My hand was being held. My fingers were not free. I was unsure: if I moved my hand, she might think I were trying to get loose; she might let me go. And then what? I couldn't grab her hand. I couldn't do that. So what should I do? Should I use my other hand? Should I place it on top of hers? Would that be alright? Is that what I want? Is that respectable? Or would I look foolish? What should I do?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 13, Apprehension, Paragraph 4

There is nothing like philosophy to kill the spirit. And don't try to infer from my history of failure that somehow my judgment has been flawed all along; I assure you that the overwhelming majority of gentlemen, and of course ladies, who have presented themselves to me as potential companions have done so with the utmost regard for disclosure. What many have lacked in dignity, or especially tact, was generally offset by charming attributes in other areas. And I feel no shame in confessing that often enough our relations were hampered only by my own indiscretions.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 1, Section 1, Introduction, Paragraph 2, Clauses 7-11

LUKA: You know, there is nothing less funny than two Americans trying to enjoy themselves.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 12, Understanding Humor and Ridicule, Paragraph 29

Macy had adopted a very serious demeanor; leaning back on the couch across from me, the distance between us now unfathomable, I knew, even from the corner of my failing eye, that the tension on his face was betraying the turmoil of his body. My head turned itself back to his, and with my twitching eye under his control, a feeling of dread began to well in my stomach; I wondered what I had done. As he said my name, twice, softly and slowly, he lifted himself and said, "I have always loved you, always - from the very beginning. I stressed and sweated my love, hoping that our friendship would somehow in someway, in whatever context, allow me to say that I loved you. But you were always too careful, and I was too afraid to risk our relationship. You were too precious." These were not his exact words mind you. I paraphrase for the sake of poetic brevity, but I do assure you that my reconstruction captures the essence of his speech.

"I would do it myself," he said, "only my religion prevents it. Why don't you try?"

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring a mysterious ocean

The wind caught the lee. The boom swung back. Junior yelled, "Jibe ho!" It was too late. As Harry stood confused, the full force of the boom hit him in the ass. He was overboard. It was a good thing Junior made him wear that ridiculously oversized life preserver.

Back on dry land, Junior kept trying. Harry Connick hit his foot with the croquet mallet. He could only get one inch off the ground on the climbing wall. He even almost drowned in the pool of balls.

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring a frank discussion of sex

The game was disastrous. The vice-presidents kept ignoring their spindly point guard. When Junior passed him the ball, he would carefully dribble it. By the time it bounced back, it was already gone. Sometimes his own teammates took it.

"Way to call the fast break," they yelled. "Hey, Harry. What do you think? Should we try a pick and slip, a pick and pop, or a pick and roll?"

"How did you know the Captain was a girl?"

"I wouldn't call her that. She's old."

Tatum shook her head. "They all look like back-country cretins to me."

"How can you tell?"

Neal winked. "I can smell it."

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 don't float around staring off into space? You don't flinch when I reach out my hand? You are a fish. You're a catfish. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to tease you. I'm serious. I want to know what's wrong. Are you sick?'

FLETCHER: If only you could work here as an actress. Unfortunately, I don't think our theatre is quite worthy of you.

ALICE: They don't do much Shakespeare.

FLETCHER: Do you like performing on stage?

ALICE: I enjoy it. It's only a job: like carpentry or farming.

(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?

KOKOMO: Oh, bittersweet news! That I might have my mistress's blessing to wed her son - her firstborn and only son: her pride and joy - and make a Catholic out of a Christian, when she knows her line - her ancient English stock - would rest entirely in my womb, fills me with great joy; but since that stock, if Madam's fears be true, is filled with an urge to plant one's seed in every jar and hole - to roam rakishly over the countryside regardless of warmth at home - I must gird myself to the possibility that my loins will not be enough: that fear of the yoke will upset my plan to reveal with success this very night my feelings to my beloved Fletcher!

– ACT II, line 28

KOKOMO: (off) I'm a big girl: I can handle it. Just push it in.

GREY GOOSE: (off) The hole's not big enough.

KOKOMO: (off) I'm pulling it apart. Just stick it in.

MS. JACKSON: My God. They're having sex in my kitchen.

Usage of Try 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.

Some people think I'm a smarty-pants. It's not true. I'm the biggest idiot of all. I immigrated to America. I came willingly. I don't regret it. As bad as things are in this country they're even worse where I was born. A lot of Americans don't realize that. Whenever I hear snobs complaining about how things are I tell them to relax. Take a trip to Woodstock. By the time you get home you'll be grateful.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on reality as I remember it

Orbitz left and came back with a small box and a pole with a noose on it. The creature scurried about trying to resist. "I know what you want," said Orbitz. "You know I'm willing to get it for you. Just be a good little girl." As soon as Orbitz had her in his clutches he injected her with a seditive. The girl started rolling her head about. She brought her little hand up to wipe her little eye. Orbitz started counting the seconds.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance which hopefully would make Lem proud, if you know who that is

Some women don't care much for context. They take words at face value. They twist them around. Never use poetic license with a woman. Never use poetry at all. A woman will only think you're trying to seduce her.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on what really happened, namely to the author

A black man in Moscow is not unheard of. There used be many of us. There were four of us in my neighborhood. Obama and Barack lived together in the gray block to the north. Khalifa lived down the street from me. We didn't necessarily like each other but we were all in the same boat. We had each come from the same poor country. We each had been invited to study in Russia. Back then, almost twenty years ago, we considered ourselves lucky. We were willing to go through any hell to see it through.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that represents reality no matter where you are

"By the time my children grow up, that world will have faded. I'm telling you. Try to learn from my experience. Take a freighter to Europe. Cook with a coal furnace. Write a letter with a nib. You will learn something.

"Maybe you think I'm crazy. You think I never lived like that. I grew up on a farm in a poor village. I was the first member of my family to be born in a hospital."

Large Wall Art Depicting the Human Landscape

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. 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. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
