Town, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to contemplate the viability of compounding his vast Fiction Corpus with a book about writing stories; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I regard highly the potential of legislating English as a worldwide language. I don't have faith in the irksome process by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Upgrading one's expertness with a language isn't like bringing about a bigger bomb. A language is not just an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A shared tongue can not be detached from the shared logic of a tribe 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 man recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A capable teacher has to prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written works of various size and consistency. This corpus may include everything from a book about literature to a bunch of books to read. I watched many nights pass developing my "supersized" Fiction Corpus in order to form a different genre 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 devised a million words and I have codified them, reshaping them - not merely to teach the English tongue but to promote the human spirit, and to propel that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Town

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 town in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Town 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.

But the terrorists were persistent. When public opinion turned ambivalent, Jesus decided to withdraw from the Old Town as quickly and as quietly as possible. After all, he was running out of ammunition. There was only so much he could do without fresh resources. Negotiating through a Reserve Army controlled checkpoint, Jesus arranged for his men to be escorted by Union soldiers north to Treblinka, where the Reserve Army would accept their arms (those that they had brought with them, of course - not those that they had hidden away) and then hold a debriefing, asking them, for instance, why they had chosen to take it upon themselves to do the Polish Army's job - even though they knew the Polish Army was grossly underfunded, and, what's more, had totally destroyed the building in which those poor men had been imprisoned.

Verse 7 from the chapter called Bohemia

Jesus didn't recognize any of this at the time - all he saw was weaponry: multitudes and multitudes of guns, ordnance, and ammunition locked away into his uncle's back room. Jesus's ability to distinguish between rifle cartridges and low-caliber, high-velocity rounds came later, after he had freed fifty Polish soldiers from terrorist captivity and had led them and others in a valiant assault on the Old Town, reclaiming it from the bloody hands of terrorist pirates and their traitorous collaborators. Jesus had no intention of doing that at the time; in fact, he had no idea that the Old Town was in the hands of bloody terrorist pirates. He had no idea that, first, he was going to become one of their traitorous collaborators.

Verse 13 from the chapter called Arms

Some people gave themselves problems. Alcohol was the chief method. For many people, alcoholism was only a symptom. For others, it was what could only be described as a strange and tragically unnecessary life choice. In Treblinka, there was a couple nicknamed the model marriage. Every afternoon, they were seen stumbling hand in hand with wide smiles on their faces. They were drunk, having spent the entire morning walking around town, asking for spare change. "Thirty cents," the woman begged. "That's all I need: for bread." Meanwhile, the man always went to the soup kitchen at the convent. "And one for my wife," he would say, smiling. Then, he would take the soup outside and sell it to some slightly richer man for loose change. Afterwards, the woman went. "One for my husband, too," she would say, smiling. Then, she would sell some slightly richer woman some soup. After a while, the nuns got wise. They began insisting on eating in: no take-out. The model marriage moved elsewhere, having lost their primary source of income.

Verse 345 from the chapter called Adolescence

In the latest, it read, in a series of ethical dilemmas, Georgetown University has lost yet another controversial professor to the world of big business - this time to Yariba, the corporation responsible for the Olympus Mons Regeneration Center, the chief gear in a massive integrated power and irrigation system that forms the lifeblood of the planet Mars. Yariba Corporation, an energy and transportation conglomerate based in Japan, but with branch offices throughout the red planet, has become interested in Prof. Mae Mac's research in tissue-integrated robotics in conjunction with its so-called Jupiter Project, Yariba's expansion into information systems which hopes to place the management and operation of the Olympus Mons Regeneration Center into the hands of a so-called supercomputer. Prof. Mae Mac, who plans to relocate to Mars, has just returned from a six-month sabbatical in Poland. Back in her plush, three-story home in Alexandria, Virginia, which she shares with longtime companion...

Verse 751 from the chapter called Adolescence

Jesus didn't leave the island very often. The one mission he went on was to find the Martian. While most of his men were securing bridges that first night, Jesus took his squad (the six men who had volunteered for his personal command - who would later become his personal bodyguard) back to the apartment building where previously that night Jesus had met with the Martian. Number seven, however, was vacant. A search of the building turned up absolutely nothing. With control of the Old Town, however, would come unlimited access to government offices. Building records were ultimately found. Though they didn't help in finding the Martian, they did provide a nice list of suspected collaborators.

Usage of Town 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: It's great. It's like the Bois de Vincennes, only better. Instead of parking in vans, they're parked in beamers. They're the most expensive street girls in Paris. They're usually pretty clean - plus you get to go to an apartment. That's a sweet part of town: millionaire alley. We should drive by. The best thing is: we can roll up. If we don't like what we see, we roll away. It's not far from here. We just have to get out of this Bologna...

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 21, Anal Sex, Paragraph 40

As you know, Ms. Christie is enjoying ever growing success as an actress in her beloved hometown. Last year, she invited me to London to see her in that terrible production - she was playing the young Ms.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 5, Clauses 2-5

NIKE: It's the best assjob in town: good price, no questions, no problems getting it: They want it. They enjoy their work. You can tell. Little Billy pops out. He's a happy camper. That gives a john a good feeling, you know? It shows it not just about the money. The only drawback is you have to use a condom. That's for your own good. If you don't like it, you're gonna have to find a real junky. They can't afford to come all the way out here. You'd have to go to Nation Place or, I don't know, maybe Vincennes, but for what? They just want the money. They don't care about doing the job right - not like these girls.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 20, Encountering the Sex Trade, Paragraph 33

She thought they were going to help her but they helped themselves to her purse. It's not always so easy, though: three men were robbed at gunpoint not far from here. You would never expect it, because it's such a nice place. Well, after I heard those stories, whenever I'd walk up and down this street late at night, and a car was passing, I would pretend to be entering the next townhouse. Nothing ever happened to me though; I'm not afraid; I'll walk you as far as you're going."

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 10, Exercising Chastity, Paragraph 3, Clauses 9-14

I have three people to blame; I'm going to start with Luke: he was responsible for my living arrangements. Having moved into Nike's townhouse on Prospect Street, and not planning to share it with any other lodgers, Luke had the pick of three bedrooms: one on the ground floor, one on the second floor, and Nike's old bedroom on the top floor. Luke wisely chose the middle bedroom, the only one that stays warm in the winter. Now Nike had been visiting for a few days, and, since he comes to visit so often, he has taken to leaving his junk all over the upstairs bedroom. When I arrived, Luke was sorry to inform me that I would be sleeping on the ground floor, in Macy's old bedroom, which hadn't been heated since Macy last slept there (and Luke couldn't remember when that was). Nike was leaving that night, so I was free to use the radiator; up I jumped, running upstairs to steal it, knowing exactly how cold Macy's room could get.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

When Shephard regained consciousness, he couldn't see. He was blindfolded. His hands were tied. He was in the back seat of a car. Shephard concentrated on the road. It had to be the desert highway. He was sure of it. No other road could be so smooth. His driver had made a point of mentioning it. The sun was to Shephard's right. It was sunset-no question about it. They were heading south. They turned west. They were heading towards town. Shephard heard vehicles. It was the traffic circle. They turned right. They were entering an Uyghur neighborhood.

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a frank discussion of what China is doing in its western provinces

Shephard obliged. He found the best room in town: a deluxe suite listed at six hundred fifty Bo. Shephard negotiated down to five hundred. He talked the hostess into putting extra soap and towels in the room. He said, "It's for my friend. He's a little particular." The woman smirked.

She said, "That's what they all say."

Shephard said in Chinese, "Help us. We'll pay." The man spotted Shephard. "We're from America. We work for the president. We'll make you the richest man in town. You'll get away with it. Trust me. Lower your gun." The officer looked back into the tunnel.

Shephard heard Clark say, "Don't look at me. I don't speak a word of Chinese."

Like a man pursued, he reached Troia in three days. By the time he crossed the hills to Benevento, he was completely stanco.

Usage of Town 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.

GREY GOOSE: Not to mention this island's penchant for making the most grotesque of assumptions - never mind that. I did a terrible thing in burning down that house: I know it. I've been paying for it ever since. I'm finally sorry for doing it. I don't think I could've said that this morning. Something's changed. I don't want to be like that anymore. I don't want to do those things. I think the Australians should mind their own business; that's neither here nor there. If you didn't squeal my name to the police, somebody else did. I'm going to find that person - not to burn down his house - to talk to him calmly and rationally: to put these absurd suspicions to rest. Everybody deserves to hear the truth, especially the people you love. I was kicked out not because of my reputation or the looks you were getting in town. It wasn't because you thought I killed that girl. It was because I hurt you. I hurt you a long time ago and I've always been too selfish to realize it. I expected you to understand - even though I never properly explained myself. It had nothing to do with you. You were perfect. I loved you. I was afraid of being a father. You know my childhood - or perceived lack thereof. I was insecure. I was scared to death. I panicked. I didn't talk to anybody about it because I was ashamed. I thought that, if you knew, you would despise me for it. You were always so strong and fearless. I envied you. When your family came and asked me what was going on, I lied. I acted as if I didn't care about you anymore: as if I had lost interest. Nothing could've been further from the truth. I was an idiot. I was such an idiot. I'm sorry for that. I'm so sorry for everything. I won't trouble you anymore. Even if you and your friend want to move in together, I won't trouble you. File divorce papers in the morning. You can keep the house - and the sofa bed - and the mattress - and the comforter - and the dishwasher. You can even keep the cook - and the boy.

– ACT II, line 356

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.

– ACT II, lines 451-460

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.

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.

So I was born one of three identical twins. Or triplets, I guess. Cause twins are two. So that was a big deal back then. I mean, triplets are born all the time now what with all the genetic testing and whatnot but back then it was a big deal. Cause it wasn't just our town that had the triplets. It was another town like right next door. You know. Two sets of triplets in one year. That was a big deal.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story without that much killing coming straight out of Roman mythology

A small but considerable uproar followed reports of the accident. Some people unfairly blamed the drivers. Most blamed the postal service and the other guys for not adequately training their men. A handful blamed the professor. Everybody tried to blame the town. For the first time in a while it seemed like the town actually hadn't done anything wrong. No private person or business was willing to pay for sidewalks, with the one exception being the post office. Something Postmaster Steve pointed out rather tactlessly one day in the local paper.

"She went too far. Khrushchev was a fan of national communism. He wasn't an imperialist by choice. He wanted to be a farmer. His first wife died in a famine.

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.
