What Fetish, a cultural index

Understanding the world from all angles...

Michal is thinking over the concept of enlarging his unheroic Fiction Corpus with a history of book reviews; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the viability of legislating English as an international standard. I don't believe in the blah blah blah scheme by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Refining one's proficiency with a language isn't like promoting a stronger wheelbarrow. A language - a spoken language - isn't merely an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A shared tongue can not be riven 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.

To make pupils recite English is to rob them of its cultural context. An informed teacher must find a method of introducing it; the insightful student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words based on a specific corpus, a body of writing of varying size and consistency. A corpus may include anything from a book about literature to some real non fictional work. I watched many nights pass laboring on my "overwhelming" Fiction Corpus to form a distinct 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 prepared a million words and I have indexed them, reframing them - not just to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to prod that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

A Fetish is the Common Word that Answers the Question, "Why?"

The most frequently used words in Michal's Corpus that represent common fetishes

Michal's Dictionary:
What Fetish

The way to understand a language is to categorize its elements. Each word belongs in a box and there only so many boxes.

You only need eight boxes or eight categories of words to understand English. At the highest level, you have what-words and who-words, how-words and why-words, where-words and when-words, whose-words and which-words.

What-words can be further categorized into the same eight boxes. Artifacts are the what-what-words. Persons and people are the who-what-words. Fuels are the how-what-words. Fetishes are the why-what-words. Places and times, the where and when-what-words respectively. Acts are whose-what-words and Kinds are the which-what-words.

These linguistic categories relate to the seven categories of culture, which in turn I organize according to day of the week.

Just as Sunday can both start the week and end the week, Sunday or Victory Day (a day for artists) is related to both which-words and whose-words, or kinds and acts.

Monday or Labor Day (a day for capitalism) represents the how, or a fuel.

Tuesday or Family Day or Prayers Day (a day for love) represents the what, an artifact.

Wednesday or Assembly Day or Constitution Day (a day for law and order) represents the where, or place.

Thursday or Greenery or Science or Earth Day (a day to study movement) represents the when, or time.

Friday or Children's Day (a day to educate) represents the the who, or people.

Saturday or Armed Forces of Democracy Day (a day for hope and strength) represents the why, or fetishes.

Definition of What FetishMargo on a trampoline

The question what fetish is answered by a word that refers to a fuel, an artifact, a place, a time, a person, or a people or any combination thereof and the power that a person who is also an artifact who is searching for meaning has ascribed to any one of them that is not inherent to any of their forms and which carries either a positive or a negative charge. It is associated with the word why.

INDIE: Must be a fetish operation.

Usage of Fetish in Tsiga Tsiga Tsiga

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.

Junior was otherwise employed. He had a newfound urge to fulfill his fantasies. He frequented fetish clubs. He liked Asians who only shaved their heads. He paid black girls to wear pink wigs. He visited Thailand.

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring a wealthy dude

One day, Purse found the courage to break the ice. They were scrambling Sammy D Watanabe, an Asian-Australian they had met in a Los Angeles fetish club. She had told Purse not to be afraid. "Be yourself," she had said, caressing his cheek.

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring one of those guys

Davis asked, "Is that how you got into the fetish thing?" Sammy D shrugged.

"I don't know. I liked sex. I liked having fun. My job was simple. I always hoped someday I would find the right girl." She looked into Davis's eyes. The debutante turned away.

She whispered, "I'm not like that."

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring a woman from South Africa

Sammy D suddenly pecked Davis on the lips like an eager, young sparrow. Her victim looked shocked. Sammy D laughed. She watched Davis run out of the stable like a little piglet. A smile crept onto the former fetish club performer's face. She whispered, "Let the games begin."

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story set in Long Island

"Please understand," she whispered. "Your mother and I care for you deeply. I'm sorry it had to come to this. I had to tell her." Junior was confused.

Sammy D brought him to see her. The kiss the women shared was something more than cordial. Junior couldn't believe his eyes.

"I've been informed," said Dorothea, "you have serious intentions to marry a black South African. Do you deny this?"

Junior squinted. He started shaking his head. He laughed. He said, "Are you having a homosexual love affair with a fetish club performer?"

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

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.
