Michal's poring over the soundness of enlarging his lowly Fiction Corpus with a biography of the best fiction authors; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the potential of utilizing English as the world's second language. I do doubt the enfeebling model by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Enriching a person's finesse for a language isn't like developing a more prodigious quern. A language - a common tongue - isn't merely a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A spoken language can not be disassociated from the philosophical currents 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 pupil recite English is to strip her of its cultural context. A worthy educator must have a strategy for introducing it; the wisest student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. They could contain anything from a book about literature to a bunch of story books. I watched many nights pass forging my "wonderful" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar class 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 assembled a million words and I have indexed them, reformulating them - not just to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human spirit, and to coax that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Word

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 word in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Word 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.

"I can't explain." I turned to your mother and said, "These moments: these moments have filled me with -" I shook my head, looking for the right words - "incredible joy, confusion, satisfaction -" I lowered my head. SATISFACTION? I SHOULD'VE SAID, 'HAPPINESS.' THAT'S MORE LIKE JOY THOUGH; SATISFACTION IS GOOD; IT CAPTURES SOMETHING MORE - MORE WHAT? MORE BASE? PRIMORDIAL? NO, NOT PRIMORDIAL; MORE BASE: THAT'S GOOD. OH, GET ON WITH IT. "These past few days have passed like a dream," I said, looking into her eyes: her big, beautiful brown almond-shaped eyes. "Your eyes are so beautiful." I got up. I lifted your mother to her feet. "I have something to give you, Zoe." Holding out her hand, I gave her three bullets. "I've had them for a while," I said, grinning rather sheepishly.

Verse 1042 from the chapter called Bohemia

"This morning, before I left for the battlefield, I asked my grandfather's nephew whether he would join me for church. He's half-Czech, by the way. You know what he said? He said he would go to church only if the farář paid him - farář is their word for priest - but seeing as how he's expected to pay the farář, there's no way that he would ever go."

We were silent again.

Verses 906-907 from the chapter called Bohemia

I noticed how strangely she phrased it. Jesus didn't say a word.

Verse 249 from the chapter called Adolescence

And so it was that Jesus was made to pursue two disparate things at once: your mother's love and Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's head. Zoe's trust in your father was essential to both goals and Jesus took pains to nurture it. His own trust in Zoe was strong, but, nevertheless, plagued by doubts and anger inspired by Zoe's incomplete control over her feelings. Jesus never revealed to her either of his two goals during this process, but, then again, your mother never mentioned the word 'love' either, nor did she ever inquire as to Jesus's intentions concerning the Krupniks. If she had asked, 'Do you love me?' or 'Do you intend to kill Leonard Cohen-Krupnik?' Jesus would've had to say 'Yes' and 'Yes.' He was not afraid of being honest. However, since your mother was afraid, or too naïve, or too oblivious, or, most probably of all, too sensitive to ask either of those two questions, Jesus felt justified in his actions. After all, Zoe agreed to unscrew the vent in Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's bathroom. What did she think I was going to do? Take a shower?

Verse 1121 from the chapter called Security

It was generally acknowledged that, at some point, the restrictions would have to return. In the meantime, interplanetary trade in fossil fuels began to flourish once again; export was up and it seemed as if Earth's economy would naturally readjust and ever so gradually return to its former dependence on renewable sources of energy. That was wishful thinking. However, terrorists were unexpected - just like the corruption of interplanetary shipping companies was unexpected - just like the Martian Revolution was unexpected. Earth was faced with an unexpected situation: the countless wet scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and fabric-filter baghouses weren't cleaning the air as fast as we were polluting it, which, in other words, meant that the atmosphere, though deceptively improving in the lower regions of the troposphere, was only getting much, much worse in the crucial regions of the stratosphere. That was bad.

Usage of Word 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 stopped it again, but the girl said, "Let it play." So I rewound it briefly and listened as carefully as possible. I thought I heard a lilting action, a soft bounce, like breath exhaling. It was only a murmur of sound, not words, and then: only Nike, describing a student from rehearsal. "The peaches and bananas: that was the best part, let's have a bit of that." So I started to rewind all the way. "I think I'm going to use it for my paper. It was almost violent!"

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 10, Exercising Chastity, Paragraph 2, Clauses 8-15

There was something else different about this dream: unlike the first two, I did not feel my own presence. That was truly disturbing. I don't know where I was - or, I should say, I don't know where that thing was which I was considering to be a projection of my own consciousness. Oh, but that is truly disturbing: why must I write such nonsense? All this dream business has me writing psychobabble: the worst kind of sex-driven mania.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 4, The Fourth Day, Part 1, Our Constitution & Constitutional Reform, Section 1, Losing Oneself, Paragraph 4

Your presence in your words was comforting, and I confess that, until now, I have suffered from your absence, and I held myself, by all accounts, among the lonelier of men - and all despite my attractive company. But without you, Sister, I am like a cloud without a storm, like a steppe without a fire, like a stable without a horse: I am too open for these times; I am too vulnerable to be sitting in this hospital by myself. Luckily, there's this letter I'm writing; your letter I have too: I keep it in my breast pocket. I have underlined all the best parts, and the parts with which I disagree - but those are of little importance.

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.

Tatum bounced down Sams Town's main concourse. She wondered what to do. She couldn't contact Uzumaki. Miss April had told her ten thousand times, "Never lose sight of the PDA." Tatum was too upset to wonder why Manga People were scurrying around her like shrews. She hardly noticed them. When she reached her apartment, she found a note stuck to her door.

It said, "I know where it is. Come to the radioactive pool. Dress sexy." The word 'sexy' was underlined-twice.

Shephard asked, "Is it painful?" Clark smirked. A man came into the room. He was holding up a digital video camera. He pointed it at Clark. He watched him on his flipped out viewscreen. He zoomed in.

"Don't sweat it," said Shephard. "These guys look like amateurs."

Sargon was dropped. The porters fled. The bodyguards' heads rolled to the ground. As pathetic as the situation was, the king seemed determined to defend himself. He braced his body. He lifted his sword. It was no match for the bloom of Atar. The king's head rolled.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a frank discussion of the purpose of life

"Praise to the Holy Bhag," said Gog. "My son and I shall soon be buried with our forefathers." The champion of the west took the sword of the son of Gog. He prepared to face his great uncle in single combat. Gog took up his sword and the sword of his consort.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a man with a sword

Gog smirked. "What I might have done in one stroke," he explained, "I do in two for lack of a brace." He turned the buckle around. He addressed the uncut bar. He slowly lifted the sword. He addressed the bar again. He slowly lifted the sword. He swung. The bar broke-as did the woman-towards her horse. Gog ran behind her. She knew she had no time to mount. She reached into her saddle. She pulled out a dagger. Gog froze. The woman stepped backwards. She drew the dagger close to herself. Reaching the horse's neck, she jabbed the blade into its throat. The horse collapsed.

Usage of Word 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.

LUKE: (to ALICE)

I'll explain later.

MS. JACKSON: How dare you invade this house? You idiot! What were you trying to do? Rape my cook? Don't tell me she was expecting you. You weren't expecting him, were you?

KOKOMO: No.

MS. JACKSON: You were trying to seduce her. My God! With a sudden invasion of the sofa bed? Not even an imbecile would consider that an effective strategy. You've lost your wits completely, haven't you? Pathetic. If you're so desperate for sex, why don't you try buying some attention?

GREY GOOSE: I admit that there have been a few times in the past couple years when I thought my vow of fidelity to you had long since expired. There may even have been a few times when I looked after a nice bit of flesh. Despite that, I've never been unfaithful to you, Ms. Jackson, no matter what you might think. As for this, I won't deny what I was after - and have been after for too long now - which is, namely, to sleep in my own bed, whether or not your cook or your lover or anyone else is in it at the time - and that, my dear, is a matter of your own construction.

MS. JACKSON: You deserved to be expelled. Do you think I enjoyed getting looks in town? Complimenting my dress, were they? You promised me you had never fooled around and that you never would. Now I know every single word they ever uttered about you is true. How could you? After all we've been through? I loved you.

FLETCHER: Come on.

GREY GOOSE: Wait. I've got some more to say. I confess I earned somewhat of a reputation in my day - for reasons mostly beyond my control, like my virility and my instinctual desire to perform well.

FLETCHER: Don't screw it up.

– ACT II, lines 347-355

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

GREY GOOSE: Must you always be so oblivious?

MS. JACKSON: I demand an explanation.

FLETCHER: From whom?

MS. JACKSON: (to KOKOMO) You.

KOKOMO: I don't know anything.

MS. JACKSON: Fletcher.

FLETCHER: Mum's the word.

MS. JACKSON: Grey Goose.

GREY GOOSE: Alright. There's a bunch of money in the music box.

– ACT II, lines 402-410

FLETCHER: Oh, marriage! Where would man be without thy warm bondage? Those who fear the rope will never know the pleasure of being tied up: of pushing with all one's might only to stand still. It is a perverse joy, indeed, to take the plunge through the trapdoor: to hear one's soul snapping in two, pushing one's heart into one's throat: to say the words, 'I do.' To wed and then to bed - how old-fashioned an order! One cannot help but desire permanence in such an ever-changing world. To oppose it, lashed to a rock, feeling its weight crush one's spirit, may be a Promethean punishment best reserved for the noble. It is no wonder that only the force of custom and law kept so many together for so long. Matrimony is not for the faint of heart. So watch out, you concubines and concubinaries - you cohabitants and live-in friends: both cataracts and calm pools await you, but no peace at that river's end: just the wide, gaping maw of dissoluteness and abandon: the ocean of human desire, with nothing to do but sink. So swim home, like salmon, and enjoy rest: the comfort you get from being tied up. My prayers were answered: I am a man again - and soon to be more: a husband. Wish me luck, for the night is still young, and many acts of husbandry await me.

– ACT II, line 550

ALICE: How old were they?

FLETCHER: Seven.

MS. JACKSON: You're taking after your father.

FLETCHER: Father never worried about getting himself extorted. Everybody already seemed to know whom he was - what's the word?

ALICE: Rooting.

FLETCHER: Thank you, Alice. Rooting.

LUKE: We're gonna have you speakin' Strine before we leave.

FLETCHER: With wowsers like my mother, it won't be enough.

MS. JACKSON: What, may I ask, is a wowser?

LUKE: A spoilsport.
