Something, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's thinking about the viability of extending his considerable Fiction Corpus with some real mind control fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the feasibility of exercising English as a global standard. I don't believe in the altogether ordinary approach by which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Enhancing a person's know-how with a language isn't like making a brighter lantern. A language - a common language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to use with greater amounts of precision. A language can't be detached from the philosophical currents of a community 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 pupil to recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. A good instructor must create a strategy for introducing it; the perceptive pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language based on a particular corpus, a body of written language of various scope and consistency. A corpus could include everything from a book about literature to some decent science fiction writing. I lost many a sleepless night forging my "enormous" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special type 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 fashioned a million words and I have catalogued them, reframing them - not simply to teach American vocabulary but to describe the human soul, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

A Better Way to Define English: Grouped into Eight Types of WordsPointer

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Something

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 something in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Something 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 didn't notice him. If he did, he only came to the Mass - didn't have time for the burial. He always has to work. You know why? 'Cause he has to have an estate! He had to build a manor house! He had to buy fields from everybody else. Why did he have to do that? Because he's a 'real farmer!' A Christian farmer! A natural farmer! He's seventy years old! He takes all day to move a barrow of hay from one side of the barn to the other. He falls over when his dogs try to hug him - even though they're starving. Seven dogs he has! Two bitches just gave birth: six in one litter and two in the other. I told him to give 'em away, but he said, 'No, I can't do that. They're good dogs: they're guard dogs. They know when somebody bad is trying to do something. When the neighbors come, they won't let them in: they know what they're about. I can't kill these dogs; I can't do that.' I said give 'em away, but does he listen? No! He just talks ridiculous things all day long!

Verse 254 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Terrorists," my cousin laughed. "The terrorist war, the Martian Revolution. The Reserve Army's been burning all of its fossil fuel reserve fighting these goddamn terrorists; no one's been able to transport fossil fuels to outer space or to Mars for the past - God knows how long; fossil fuel consumption's been up ever since interplanetary trade fell to shit, and all despite the rising prices and restrictions - the Americans finally realized we have to do something about the atmosphere again."

Verse 74 from the chapter called Bohemia

In those days, women wore anything that resembled something from a famous hand-tinted photograph from the nineteenth century. There was a free catalog available on the Internet, listing all the famous collections and the most famous photographs, organizing them by date or location, or photographer, painter, model - every criterion available - but especially by women's dress. The crinoline; the cage crinoline, dome and pyramid, flat in front; the crinolette; and the bustle were all represented in their various forms and colors. Even pornographic photographs were readily available to show off every type of undergarment. Famous women wore bloomers underneath their petticoats: the kind with an open crotch and single button, which made it much easier to have sex fully clothed, a favorite and celebrated pastime for the elites.

Verse 18 from the chapter called Childhood

Those days are over. What man keeps his own cow nowadays? Who's going to milk her? Sell her to the dairy farm; let the machines do it. Who's going to sell their own milk and cheese and butter? So many health regulations apply, only the biggest farmer can do it. The Sanitation Department would crush you. That's what they're there for: to protect the public health: to put small farming out of business. Sell your farms! Move to the city! Sleep with rats in your bed instead of your barn. "Don't you realize?" they say. "You can't live off your own land if you're not an agribusinessman! You need to go and be a clerk! File papers! Deal with people! Serve! Don't grow! (Please: we'll give you money not to grow.) Go to the city! Get a job! Manage a firm! Sell cars, rocks - I don't know. We need more cosmetics! More clothes! My shirt is dirty - make me a new one: something flashy, something new. Don't you understand? We don't have enough knick-knacks: go and make some. See if you can sell them! Good luck! We'll see you at the opera! What? You can't make it? What a shame! It's the best! It's culture! That's what we're here for: to make things and watch opera."

Verse 144 from the chapter called Childhood

Usage of Something 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.

You should, however, go down to Jermyn Street and find me something. I don't care what it is exactly, so long as it's something mannish, something you would like. It's not for me to wear: I want to spray it around the house, all over the furniture, the bathrooms, the studio, and especially my bed. Obviously I'll refrain from entering the other bedrooms - don't worry about that. Besides, you're not planning on coming back any time soon, so there's no reason why you shouldn't do it. If you don't want to go all the way to St. James then go to Mayfair. Although I suppose that would be the same thing. Go to Knightsbridge - but stay away from Harrod's: I don't want you doing business there. Although, come to think of it, why would I have you do business anywhere in the West End?

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 6

If there be more travelers, they are not here with me; they are walking their own roads. And everyone else: they are not walking; they are waiting for the train to take them somewhere. They have refreshments. They are satisfied. They may be hungry for something, but they do not thirst. Whereas I am intoxicated by thirst. I am driven by it. I am woken by its demanding murmurs. It leads me down the corridor tipsy. It lets me fall down stairs. It gives me the visions of a madman. But it is my friend. It leads me to the type of water for which I thirst: the type in which I was baptized: the water of eternal life. And someday, I will drink from the cup that holds it. Someday I will because I insist upon it. And I am willing to suffer in the meantime. I am willing to walk tipsy; I am willing to fall down once in a while. I accept the visions that come with my spiritual drunkenness. Shall I describe them to you?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 4, Self-image, Paragraph 5, Clauses 11-29

"Well," said Macy, "Lynnhaven was a very famous oyster - it's a river, actually, in Virginia: Lynnhaven. But it got so polluted that the oyster was declared inedible during the Seventies - all thanks to a little something called 'fecal contamination,' which is to say, dog shit - well, mostly dog shit. And, human shit." It was amazing how attractive Macy was when he was talking about shit.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 4, Meeting a Man in Austria, Paragraph 4, Clauses 7-11

So the industry makes a big deal out of its own accomplishments. That's why, if you're not a rose-grower you don't really hear about the Rose Selections. It's a niche market, which means that there's a steady audience, that certain people will always be buying roses: why should the judges be worried about what's going to be popular?" I told Macy that simplicity is a virtue, and if the Rose Selectors wish to commend a grower for developing an easy flower to grow, then it lies entirely within their prerogative. Nike agreed, pointing out that the Rose Selectors were judging roses, "not rose growers. If they were doing that, then maybe they'd give the award to someone who could successfully grow a difficult rose." Macy agreed that it was entirely natural for the judges to compliment a rose that was easy to grow. "But that's not my point. My point is: why isn't there a prize for rose growers? That kind of prize would reward merit, it would raise public awareness of these talented people and their art form, but it wouldn't serve the economy and therefore it would never be subjected to its forces." Nike stopped to consider this, but I already knew that Macy was mistaken. Not only was he being idealistic, he was being plain wrong. I asked him why he'd want to divorce prize-giving from the promotion of goods. What good would that serve? "It would serve the ideal," he replied; "it would preserve the purity of the prize itself." I turned away from him and stared in front of me. I told him he was being foolish; he was defining a prize as something periodically given by an institution to members of a select community. I told him to consider a prize given daily from one person to another; I told him to consider marriage. "Love," I said, "is a gift freely given, but marriage is a prize for which people apply, for which some qualify and some do not. Whoever be the judge, the prize is awarded on the basis of merit, and the banns of marriage proclaim the lucky victors. Do you think you can divorce marriage from its promotion of life? How fruitful is the marriage without children? Tell me honestly, is your ideal marriage incapable of producing children?" I did not turn to face him; instead, I got up and went for a drink.

Usage of Something 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.

By dusk a crowd of locals had gathered. I could smell somebody using Steve's special supplement. He wasn't sharing. I got sucked into listening to some country rube's monologue about a friend who came out as a lesbian. She kept insisting to me that she respected her friend's decision but she wasn't going to enter into that kind of immoral relationship herself. I wondered if there was any polite way I could leave.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on something that happened, namely to the author

One day a strong man came to the cabin. He lifted Grendel in his arms and took her to a car. He told her she would be okay and gave her a blanket. Grendel asked him if he was the Chinook. He said, "I don't think so."

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

The Amazon called his team. One half was still following Orbitz on the cruise ship. The other half was in front of the shop. He ordered them into the neon building. They walked up to the second floor. The team leader paused. He could hear something in the room ahead. It sounded like a man rapping his fingers on a desk. He pushed open the door. There was no desk. There was no man. There was clutter everywhere. Strange objects of art and furniture stacked on top of each other loomed from every corner. The rapping continued. It was slower now. It was more cautious. The men squeezed into the room. All of them were transfixed by the sound. It was coming from behind a low curtain. The curtain was draped over what seemed like a crate. Or a cage. The men crowded in front of it. The leader reached out his hand. He grabbed a corner of the curtain. He lifted it.

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.
