Soon, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is thinking about the concept of strengthening his formidable Fiction Corpus with a biography of the best fiction authors; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I think highly of the idea of exercising English as the world's second language. I do doubt the conventional system by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Strengthening a person's artfulness with a language isn't like bringing about a hotter kiln. A language - a common language - isn't merely a tool that you can teach yourself to exploit with greater amounts of precision. A language can not be bisected 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.

To make pupils recite English is to deprive them of its cultural context. An informed teacher has to develop a strategy for introducing it; the bravest student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words based on a specific corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. This corpus could include everything from a book about literature to some real mystery stories. I lost many a sleepless night developing my "wonderful" Fiction Corpus in order to form a specific 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 drafted a million words and I have enumerated them, reformulating them - not just to teach an American language but to reveal the human soul, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Soon

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 soon in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Soon 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.

"Yes, of course."

"When?"

"I don't know. As soon as possible."

"How did he die?"

"Guess. He was a heroin addict."

"Were you there when he died?"

Jesus stopped.

"Were you responsible for your father's death?"

"What was it like?"

Verses 180-188 from the chapter called Security

"'I'll sooner make a hole,' he said. 'We'll be pedaling all night.' Like on a Crazy Anne."

Verse 216 from the chapter called Adolescence

In fact, he would only have a few minutes. As soon as Stalin saw Zoe leave the office, he would make a radiotelephone call to Columbus. As the Rathaus Club's regularly scheduled deejay for Twentieth Century Night, Columbus would start playing a ten-minute song with a steady beat whose constant refrain was, appropriately enough, 'Do it now.' If he received a second call, he would instantly replace that track with 'Stop! In the Name of Love.' That meant that something had happened and Stalin had decided to abort.

Verse 1145 from the chapter called Security

With the lounge emptied, there was only going to be one guard on the way to Zoe's room. He was the independent variable. There was a chance that he could be in the darkened lounge, or next to the doorway to the kitchen, or, worst of all, on the stairs to the third floor. He would have to be subdued. The problem was that there were security cameras everywhere. If the lounge were darkened, as was planned, there was a good chance that my activities there would go largely unnoticed. Only my passage to Zoe's room would be cause for alarm, but not enough to make the security director inform Leonard Cohen-Krupnik, at least not until he had sent someone to investigate. With one guard strangely unavailable, he would have to send the fourth-floor guard. While that guard were busy trying to unlock or break down Zoe's door, I would already be half-way through the air-conditioning duct. Stalin, having received my call (meaning that the first guard had been subdued) would already have swung onto the balcony and, having entered the darkened salon, would be waiting behind the door to the hallway. As soon as he heard my cries from Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's office, he would rush into the hallway, take the mirror off the wall, lean it against him, and, turning around and opening the double doors as if he were Zoe returning, my attention diverted, I would immediately turn around to face him and, pointing my pistol away from Leonard Cohen-Krupnik - just in case I didn't hear the left-hand topmost drawer opening, or the hammer of a gun being cocked - Stalin would, as quickly as possible, maneuver the mirror into such a place as would allow me, first, to witness Leonard Cohen-Krupnik raising his gun, and then, to avert mortal sin and felonious crime as I, in the last second, turned back and, kneeling to the side, avoided his greedy bullet while, simultaneously, sending him to his ultimate judgment. It was a brilliant plan, but dependent on God.

Verse 1148 from the chapter called Security

"Well what?" asked Jesus.

"Are you going to let me in?" asked the Krupnik.

"As soon as I get paid," said Jesus.

"Then what?"

"Then I'll tell you how to get inside."

"How long will it take?"

"Not long," said Jesus.

Usage of Soon 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.

My interpretation was graciously accepted, but I don't think anyone expected us to stay as long as we did. Luke was very happy with himself. Barbara was able to calm down soon enough to get drunk, and I? I being perfectly content to let the night continue ad nauseum, was very happy when it finally wore itself out in that manner. Not only did I get my money's worth, but I still have a date! It's yours if you want it; otherwise I told Barbara I would have her model for me.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 11, Clauses 7-11

NIKE: Are you familiar with nomenklatura? those millions upon millions of bureaucrats? whose only interest was protecting their own power and privilege? There was only one thing my father was capable of coveting: control of the Politburo; and, soon discovering that there was no way up or down (unless he stayed a coal miner like his father), he soon realized he could only shift himself left or right, and, since China was also communist, and very critical of Russia, he decided he could only go where all young men desired: west.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 27, Penetration, Paragraph 51

Soon enough, she was swallowed by the waiting crowd. They were all waiting to get it on. They might as well have all been naked: I could see right through their clothes. They were all coming in droves: like bees: coming on, getting off. The train kept going in and out of tunnels.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 8, Allowing For One's Imagination, Paragraph 10

Finally, I understand what you mean, A. Jo Ann; you may be right. If marriage is to be divorced from matrimony, then someday soon marriage may also be divorced from exclusivity. There is no inherent reason why that institution must be monogamous. We only think it should because we're divided into two sexes, and, consequently, we think marriage must be composed of two people. But, if it's not based on two sexes, then there's no reason to cherish that number.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 7, The Seventh Day, Part 1, Strength & Security Sector Reform, Section 2, Facing a Choice, Paragraph 22

Do you remember hearing about the big argument? when Albert was hit by projectiles in the head? when I had to offer him my apartment? You'll remember that soon after my offer was accepted, Albert suddenly left the house and left me alone to console his wife.

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.

Patsy, on the other hand, was drawn by a different feast: the confident stride of youth, emerging from the sea, hands pushing back wet strands, an elbow pointing up, pulling with it a tortuous line of shade across flesh, a motion of such immense gracefulness that, once reaching its climax, it just as soon hid the soft, pale underbelly of the arm that led down to a freshly matted pit of delicately trimmed hair, still peaking from beneath those drawn shoulders, pointing to a pair of bubbly breasts, which, ever so mournfully, turned away, presenting the elegant boxwood bouts of the back, dimpled above the ass, bending now at those generous hips before pushing off with the springiness of freshly leavened dough, and disappearing like satin gauze upon the waves. Now that, thought Patsy, was a girl in desperate need of police investigation.

– from “A Cop Named Patsy,” a funny story featuring a cop who goes to Japan

Tae asked, "How can you tell?"

"There's moss on this side. There isn't any on the other. Wet, cold air comes from this direction."

"I suggest," said Tae, "if you like it warm and dry, to claim a field as soon as you can. There's no telling what those others will do."

The man shook his head. "I like it damp. I find it refreshing."

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring a society that has to learn everything all over again

As soon as everybody else had left, Junior asked Harry why he let his wife treat him so poorly. "You're not one of those masochists, are you?" He had met a few of those. They had watched him make love to their wives.

Harry Connick shook his head. Junior thought he heard him whisper the word, "No."

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring an interesting use of wealth

The man was right. As soon as Tatum was settled into her apartment, she came to watch. The excitement was contagious. Manga People strapped on magnetic harnesses. Their jawless mouths puckered with glee the instant they zipped up the sides of the domed roof.

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story featuring a frank discussion of what it means to belong

Neal's arm made it past the threshold. Tatum grabbed his collar. She heaved on it. Neal's shoulder made it. She let go of the arm to grab the back. The arm smacked her in the face. Tatum roared. She got the torso inside. It was working. She grabbed the waist. Piece by piece, Tatum pulled in Neal's limp body from outside. It collected behind her. As soon as the soles of his boots had crossed the threshold, Tatum shut the door. She collapsed against it. She panted.

Usage of Soon 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.

KOKOMO: I listen to you. I know you're upset. Unless you can think clearly about what's at stake, you shouldn't commit to it.

FLETCHER: My judgment has been clouded. Your perceptiveness never ceases to amaze me. I only hope that someday soon I'll be worthy of your favor.

KOKOMO: Time can only strengthen our bond.

FLETCHER: I get impatient. I want certain things to happen now.

KOKOMO: Believe me: it's better to wait.

FLETCHER: Agreed.

– ACT I, lines 1352-1357

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

MS. JACKSON: If he came to me repentant of his sins - I mean all of them - I would forgive him. I would consider allowing him to return to this house. Do you think I don't want him? I want him more than you could ever know. I want him in a way that, unfortunately, I have never had him. I won't settle for less than I deserve. That's all I'm going to say on the subject. It upsets me. Your father has behaved strangely in the past; as of late, his actions have been frightening me. Maybe it is the climate around here - I'm not going to take any chances. (to KOKOMO) I want you to watch out for him, in case he should try to violate you.

FLETCHER: That is unwarranted.

MS. JACKSON: It may have taken a hundred and fifty years for another murder to occur, but we are not immune to rape. We need only bear witness to what took place on Pitcairn in recent times. Six men were found guilty of sexual offenses. That's almost the entire adult male population over there. I'm not going to let that happen around here - not while I'm alive. Do you understand? As soon as you're done with this mess, Kokomo, I would like these towels to go to the laundry. We have all of Lesbian's things to wash.

KOKOMO: I have a question, ma'am.

MS. JACKSON: Yes?

KOKOMO: Will our guest from New Zealand be staying with us for considerably longer than planned? If that's the case, I'm going to have to make a new schedule.

MS. JACKSON: I don't know, dear. I don't think so, but, then again, you can never be sure, can you? Just stick to the current schedule for now. I'm sorry if you've been overworked.

KOKOMO: That is not my concern at all.

MS. JACKSON: I just want Homo to feel as welcome as possible. Thank you for your continued cooperation. Excuse me.

– ACT I, lines 1323-1332

MS. JACKSON: What about my heirloom?

GREY GOOSE: What heirloom?

MS. JACKSON: The one you stole.

GREY GOOSE: I didn't steal anything.

MS. JACKSON: Don't lie to me.

GREY GOOSE: I didn't.

LESBIAN: I did. I packed it away in my bag. I have two tickets for tonight's flight: one for me and one for you. Come. We'll explore the world as your ancestors did: the English and the Polynesians. They went from west to east; we'll go from east to west. We'll show the lost and the lovelorn what true devotion means. We'll scale Victory Peak in China. We'll sail the Punjab. We'll get lost in Gargas Cave. We'll bathe in the hot springs beneath Mount Hekla. We'll catch a Broadway show. We'll do some shopping at Shinjuku Station. We'll do anything your heart desires. All you have to do is liberate yourself. Let your passions run free. Someday we'll return to your native land. It won't ever be the same again. Nevermore will you be shamed. Woman, you'll have made the entire world yours.

MS. JACKSON: Nameless Pain! How am I to deny a penitent husband - newly birthed in remorse, in truth, in love, and desirous of similar gifts from me, his lawfully wedded wife, who, for so long, and with so many tears, kept watch over this heretofore seemingly endless and vain gestation - yet relish this sudden appearance of life: this infant curiosity: this foundling whose love demands more than my adoption could ever give? Oh, Homo: a thousand hearts couldn't beat as strongly as you have made mine beat. This is my home. I can no sooner leave it than change my body for that of a man. The world is yours; go out there and take it. Please leave me in peace. I beg you.

LESBIAN: I'll go. Though it pains me more than female circumcision, I'll go. I'll go because I love you.

– ACT II, lines 357-365

FLETCHER: It was tough. They didn't have many farming tools. In fact, all they had was a broken shovel. They did have some hammers and some crowbars. They used that to bore a hole through a rock. They put their gunpowder inside and blasted themselves a cistern. They were lucky that the ship's armorer was part of their crew. He could use the ship's bellows and the anvil to make new tools. Unfortunately, soon after they got there, his Tahitian consort fell from a cliff and died - apparently while she was gathering birds' eggs. It didn't take long before he was threatening to leave unless they allowed him to take one of the Tahitian men's wives. Nobody was very happy about that, but he was the blacksmith. They couldn't afford to lose him.

Usage of Soon 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.

I killed a cat. It was an accident. I was trying to cut its fur. I wanted to show Kelly the ugliness of a shaved pussy. I don't deserve two years of prison for it. Cruelty to animals is nothing next to how humans treat each other. They put me in the same prison I used to guard. At the very least I know which of these bitches aren't shaved. Those are the ones I can fuck. Even when I was a kid I couldn't stand a bare floor. All the blood stains and grime and guts on the linoleum in the kitchen. It was disgusting. It always curled up at the edges. Like Kelly's toes. As soon as I get out of here I'll find that girl. I'll get her the biggest razor I can find.

Adam was gay. The intimacy of his relationship with Steve O was sending him the wrong signals. Especially when Steve O was really drunk and wielding his naked balls like a pair of nunchunks. Adam decided to try respectfully to step things up. The results were disastrous. As soon as Steve O realized what Adam's hand was doing and where his lips were, he basically borrowed the strength of ten men to heave him up and out of the room. The friendship suffered.

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.
