Young, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is wrestling with the notion of strengthening his superb Fiction Corpus with a treatise on nobel literature; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the soundness of exercising English as a global standard. I do question the spiritless design by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Beefing up one's know-how with a language isn't like producing a finer porcelain. A language isn't merely a tool that you can teach yourself to employ with greater amounts of precision. A shared tongue cannot be disassociated from the shared logic of a society 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 cheat her out of its cultural context. A proper teacher must find a method of introducing it; the smartest student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a particular corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. They may include everything from a book about literature to some good fiction. I burned many candles creating my "paltry" Fiction Corpus in order to form a unique class 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 fashioned a million words and I have investigated them, reformulating them - not simply to teach a tongue but to describe the human spirit, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Young

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 young in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Young 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 remembered one time when a younger Jesus had expressed his fears that someone might break into his father's apartment and steal his books. "That's never happened," his uncle had said. "Someone breaking into a poor man's apartment building and climbing three flights of stairs? To steal his books? Never happened - not in Poland. Maybe in the States, but: I doubt it."

Verse 592 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Now, in those days, people still went to the altar rail and kneeled to receive Communion. This process, though quaint, was always a grand rush among the old people to get there first, probably so they wouldn't have to walk alone on the way back - they were so afraid of being judged. Those people poked each other with their elbows, pushed ahead, and nearly trampled the hunchbacked. The first time I saw it, when I was thirteen years old, I thought the elderly went first for the sake of courtesy. I was waiting for the young people to go up; they never did. I missed Communion. Not even the middle-aged went. They were sinners. If they hadn't been to confession in - let's say - the past two weeks, they weren't supposed to take Communion. That's how well trained they were. Maybe the priests couldn't afford the bread.

Verse 680 from the chapter called Security

When my parents were young, the government in Warsaw told everyone that Americans were dropping potato bugs onto Poland. Supposedly, they were dropping them from planes. Nobody believed it. People thought it was some kind of strange propaganda: why would Americans drop potato bugs on Poland? Nevertheless, the potato bugs were there. People admired their beautiful colors. "What beautiful eggs," they said. Then, the eggs hatched. People didn't realize these were potato bugs. Before long, the potatoes were gone; people blamed America. The government in Warsaw was safe.

Verse 85 from the chapter called Childhood

"Look: I understand that you're young. You haven't lived as long as I have. You're inexperienced. But after you've lived on this planet for a while, you'll gain some experience-"

Verse 317 from the chapter called Bohemia

"She was sacrificed. She was not innocent, but she was sacrificed - not for your sakes, but for her own. Do you understand that? She didn't have to do what she did. She didn't have to die so young; it wasn't her calling. It was her sin. She fell into it and she couldn't get out. She was trapped by my father's obsessions. Do not follow him!

Usage of Young 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.

NIKE: Yeah, it's like heaven wrapped up in hell. They don't have to work alright, but not because they don't want to: they can't even feed themselves: they don't know how. The women have to feed them until the queen's ready to have kids. It's like the Amazons, for godsake. These chicks have careers, man: they start by takin' out the trash: they're on clean-up duty, disinfecting the honeycomb. After that, they become nurses - right? first for the older kids, then they're graduated to the younger ones. And then what? They become builders for a while, and then, finally, they get to fly outside for the first time. But then? they go straight to guard duty - 'cause only when you're at the top of the hive can you go out and hunt for nectar. Can you imagine what that's like? Matriarchy?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 13, Discussing the Birds and the Bees, Paragraph 11

Do you know what I'm talking about? Every time I began pouring water over that tiny head of hers, she would get extremely nervous. She would stand up in the bathtub and wave her arms about as if she were trying to fly. And, as the water came pouring down, she would squeeze her face as tightly as possible, fluttering those tiny little arms of hers. She blew raspberries to prevent the water from coming in. It was very cute - especially when the water was finished, because then she would smile, and, giggling, she would flap her arms about a few more times - but this time, much more forcefully, with determination: as if she were trying to assure us that she was indeed a very happy child.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 1, Bathing Young Children, Paragraph 2

Then he put it back on the plate. This time he ignored the crumbs on his mouth. Holding the newspaper with his left hand, he placed his right elbow on the armrest, brought his hand to his nose, pushed up his falling glasses, and leaned back in his chair. Then he started reading again; I thought to myself, "What an old man: Nike looks just like an old man. If he were wrinkly and gray - except for those minor differences, he would look exactly the same. He would do the exact same things - in fact, he will do the same things. He will be Nike many years from now. He will be older and he will not look as young, but he will still be Nike.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 1, Cancer, Paragraph 5, Clauses 8-16

ANDY: And that's why Iraq is an interesting model, and the Polish especially: I can't imagine who would know more about nation-building: considering they went from having one of the largest states in Europe to nothing at all in the span of a generation. Their whole mythology is about nation-building - in the sense of creating a single people, you know? Not like America's ideals of manifest destiny: the American Dream: go west, young man. Not like British mythology, either: the sun never sets on the empire, et cetera.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 10, Bringing Up a Sore Subject, Paragraph 48

I checked up on the old woman down the aisle. She was being fucked by the young man. An old man sitting next to her was trying to masturbate. He looked like Bob Dole. I laughed out loud, but very nervously.

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.

As the men crossed, one of his favorite pages, a boy named Mangone, was pushed by the current to high water. Instinctively, Sforza rode out to save him. His horse slipped. In an instant, underneath the weight of Sforza's heavy armor, the loins of his horse gave way. Both man and beast were delivered into the arms of the cold current.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story about a young man who tries to be manly

Her husband had appeared. Ferrari was beaten within an inch of his life. Undaunted, the young boy remained. To spite his treacherous stepmother, he gave her no privacy. His father gave no quarter. Beaten senselessly on a regular basis, Ferrari gave up. He began wandering through the Puglian countryside.

Tae had trouble concentrating on the argument. The man of average build was standing between two women. One was young. She had square shoulders. The other was middle-aged. Her breasts were enormous. She wore-like everybody else-a standard issue People's Liberation Army uniform. Her physique defied standards. The brown, woolen skirt mushroomed her belly. The top button of her white shirt was fastened; the bottom one, less so-the three in between had already popped.

The chairman of the committee was of a different mind. Patsy went to the chairman's wife, saying, among other things, that, though he proposed to pursue full time his own investigation into the suspicious death of Nancy Cartwright, he was told that dead young women don't vote. "Excuse me?" said the chairman's wife. Eventually, the chairman gave in.

Patsy's colleagues in New York were less than excited. "Nancy Cartwright committed suicide," said the Captain.

"If I a brigand be,

Thinking yourselves so wise,

Deserving every prize,

For having such clean feet,

And farting out your meat."

Usage of Young 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

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

ALICE: 'If you shoot want a yun wife rater?'

FLETCHER: 'I am not Ned Young. I'm not going to shoot anybody. I'm not going to chop anybody's head off with an axe. I'm not going to abandon you for anyone. I'm going to love you for the rest of my life. So help me God, I will. You don't have to run away anymore. You don't have to be afraid that someday you're going to want to hurt me. I will never give you cause.'

ALICE: 'You ton't know tis.'

FLETCHER: 'I do know it. I may be young, but I'm not stupid. I know what I'm doing. I'm following my heart. Even if a thousand men-of-war were to show up this very afternoon with a thousand brides for me to choose from, I wouldn't leave you: not for all the Englishwomen in the world. Who took care of the sprawlers with me? Who threw me Johnny Mills to save young Polly's life? You did. Do you remember that day when the wave nearly swept those infants away? Who saved their lives? We did. Tera-ura: "Sacred Dance." Mata Ohu. It's time we had children of our own. It's time for you to have a proper family. What say you? Will you marry me?'

– ACT II, lines 214-217

KOKOMO: Do you have any other newly found faith I should know about?

FLETCHER: I believe in the strength of our love.

KOKOMO: Do you love me?

FLETCHER: With all my heart.

KOKOMO: Are there any other new beliefs?

FLETCHER: You're in a bit of a hurry.

KOKOMO: I'm not getting any younger.

FLETCHER: I believe in the Catholic Church.

KOKOMO: You are not Catholic.

FLETCHER: I will be. I won't stand for any more impediments. I will adore God, worship Mary, and venerate the saints - as long as I can ask your hand in marriage.

– ACT II, lines 527-536

FLETCHER: Next you'll say my mother.

ALICE: Why not Kokomo?

FLETCHER: Our cook?

ALICE: She's pretty.

FLETCHER: That's not the point.

ALICE: I think she's beautiful.

FLETCHER: You like boys: strapping young men, who know how to treat a woman right.

ALICE: Stop it.

FLETCHER: You like it when they stroke your arm and your back.

ALICE: Stop.

Usage of Young 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.

When the Nautilus left orbit Orbitz shadowed it in the Argo. When the Nautilus turned off course and headed towards the tesseract the Argo turned too. It wasn't alone. On the opposite side of the Nautilus there was another Argo. It was may have been younger but it had the same shape. The same designation. The same frequency to its identification transmitter. The presence of the two identical ships seemed impossible. It confused the operators of the control station long enough to let all three ships pass into the tesseract. From that point on they couldn't be stopped. They passed through the singularity.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance written in honor of Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

The bank on the corner of Lima and Rebelo streets was a big bank. It had a glass tower reaching up into the heavens like every other building in the area. It was an old bank. Its first two floors were refreshingly free of the massive luxury watch billboards and perfume ads that littered the eye in every direction. The walls were made of stone. Walking further I realized it was just a facade. But the wall that ran perpendicular to Lima and Rebelo streets had a gallery on the second floor. It was the one old thing of substance I could see. The one part of the old building you could actually stand on. For a second I imagined myself in 19th century China as if I were a young Rebelo in love with a young Lima whose father owned the bank and whom I was dangerously wooing from the street with a bouquet of flowers. The world was beautiful and full of hope. Until the garbage truck honked for me to get out of the way.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that includes fiction as far as I can tell

Grendel never saw her mother again. She was taken to live with a quiet family next to a quiet house with a young boy in it. The young boy was fond of Grendel even though she was quiet and shy. The boy told Grendel he loved her and would take her away. "Like the Chinook," she said.

One day the Chinook came and Grendel disappeared. The boy was left quiet and sad.

– from “Little Grendel's First Hair,” a fairy tale story about something terrible that unfortunately exists in real life

"I saw the two of them down by the court," said the young woman. She was talking about Matt and Parker. She whispered, "I think they're doing it." Jessica puckered her mouth in excitement. She was grateful to be off the grindstone. Her beer-fueled dalliance with the old man fueled giggles and shakes of the head for days. She was the youngest counselor. Barely eighteen.

I considered mentioning Matt's condoms. I thought better of it.

– from “A Magnum Condom,” a bedtime story to teach children about the real world that may or may not work

The older girls took Grendel to a warm cabin full of stuffed animals. They left her with two younger girls about Grendel's age. They were quiet and shy. The witch came with a bowl of macaroni and cheese. Grendel liked it.
