Them, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is mulling over the possibility of complementing his supersized Fiction Corpus with some akbar birbal stories translated into modern English; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I regard highly the possibility of exercising English as a common language for the world. I don't have faith in the blah blah blah blueprint with which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Upgrading one's expertness with a language isn't like promoting a cleaner piece of coal. A language - a spoken tongue - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with a greater amount of precision. A spoken tongue cannot be segmented from the prevailing culture of a circle 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.

Teaching a student to recite English is to cheat her out of its cultural context. An informed teacher must prepare a plan for introducing it; the wisest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe words on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying size and consistency. Such a corpus can contain everything from a book about literature to some really short fiction stories. I suffered many a sleepless night forging my "considerable" Fiction Corpus in order to form a unique type 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 framed a million words and I have evaluated them, reshaping them - not just to teach the English tongue but to reveal the human soul, and to encourage that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Them

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 them in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Them 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.

Then, in Jesus's bedroom, we played our favorite game, blind man's buff. It was Sapper's idea; Sapper always wanted to play it. At the time, it was generally known as the best opportunity for grabbing girls, but Sapper's excitement was unparalleled. Your father liked it too: he liked to fall on top of girls when he caught them. He said that on top of them was the only way he could recognize girls blindfolded. We were devils, but ladies like devils. Fathers, on the other hand, do not - and Sapper got your father in trouble one time.

Verse 205 from the chapter called Childhood

Right across from Jesus's mother's house, there lived a pretty girl. Sapper was always interested in pretty girls; when we were older, he would accost them on the street. In those days, when we were young, before Sapper's luck had run out, he was more discreet, but no less idiotic.

Verse 206 from the chapter called Childhood

So we stopped at the warehouse where your father's uncle bought some clothes by the scale. He bought enough clothes to fill twenty trash bags. Throwing about five trash bags into the back seat, he was able to fit five more into the trunk. Getting into the car, we placed all the other trash bags between our legs, underneath them and on our laps, beside ourselves, behind our backs and our heads, on either side, piling them underneath our arms and above them, squeezing them into our crotches, filling the pits of our knees and arms, making stacks that came up to our noses and our asses. They were not comfortable. They were plastic bags. They were black: they absorbed the midday sun. They made us hot and sweaty. They stuck to our skin. These plastic trash bags full of clothing stuck to our skin. It was disgusting. They smelled. It was like being poached in oil with sweet and sour pepper. The clothes were spilling out. Somebody would wear this filthy shirt squeezing out of my crotch. It was disgusting. There were balls of nylon stocking squeezing themselves into my ass. When we turned into a back alley and stopped, I was grateful.

"Is this the store?" I asked.

Usage of Them 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 was so drunk I fell backwards on the bed, finding even more sweetness in the sheets. I found so much, in fact, I began rolling around in them, twisting and laughing every time I pushed a new gust of fragrance into my face. I wanted to fall asleep and dream in those sheets, but I was too awake. And when I came back from the auction fiasco, I was insensibly drunk. So I blame Macy for leaving so much of himself in that room. And I blame myself for not spending more time with him there.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 4

I think the history of modern settlement is so fascinating, especially the concessions which the rest of nature has made in the face of our progress. Humanity has had to transform nature to its own purposes, and it is interesting that many people dislike such realities; they find them regrettable, as if they were all part of a conflict we are somehow compelled to wage. But I think the story is heroic, though indeed, our failures are always lamentable. I am the first to agree that respecting nature is critical, but we must respect nature while we continue to conquer. In this war, we cannot become the slaves of nature. Nature must be an honorable enemy. Ah, but speaking of enemies, I was supposed to tell you about the gallows of Tyburn.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 10, Using Metaphor, Paragraph 2

Upon reaching the downstairs room, I closed the door. Going to the sofa, I began to strip. I unbuttoned half my blouse before I tore it off. Unzipping my skirt, I started tugging it down my thighs. I cursed myself for wearing stockings. Rolling one of them down, I looked at the clock: one minute before midnight. Tearing off the rest of my underwear, I cursed myself for wearing so much clothing - but, standing in the middle of the room stark naked, I now approached the fireplace. Kneeling before it, I opened its doors. I looked inside: it was very dirty; the flue was closed. I opened it, letting a small cloud of ash fall: I cursed myself for not preparing it earlier. I looked at the clock. There was still time. I turned myself around, my back facing the fireplace, and, positioning my hands behind me, I felt the cold tile.

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.

Shephard prepared to take another sip. He said, "The kind our last boss put on the terrorist watch list?" Clark turned back. He shrugged feebly. Shephard continued, "I assume we won't be helping the Chinese destroy them."

"We're looking for leverage against Beijing."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a military man

"I'm not going there to sell them out. I'm not going to arm them either. I've been asked to assess the situation. Your Russian is good. Your Chinese isn't bad. I hear you've even picked up some Turkish-and I don't mean just the language."

"You don't know what's going on, Clark-and I don't just mean my personal life. The Chinese are engaged in a full-scale crackdown."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a slick operator

Step by step, the station grew bigger. It looked real. Clark and Shephard got closer. They saw people. They were walking. Some of them were pumping gas. A few of them exchanged words with each other. Clark and Shephard headed towards the store. They reached the door. They both grabbed the handle. It was real. They pulled. Nothing happened. They were pulling in opposite directions. Shephard tried to push Clark away. Clark refused to let go. He tried to push Shephard. They both fell to their knees. They tried pulling again. It was useless. It was too hard for them to cooperate. A customer had to open the door for them. Clark and Shephard crawled inside.

Usage of Them 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: 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: I don't want to be the one spillin' secrets, but you might as well know. It all started when her grandmother was raped by the Japanese on Western Samoa.

LESBIAN: During the war?

LUKE: Whenever it was that they occupied the island.

LESBIAN: The Japanese never occupied Western Samoa. They did have plans to invade, but Midway changed all that. They tried to capture Port Moresby instead. Unfortunately for them, what they thought was a motor track turned out to be a mule trail, one which no Australian had dared traverse in over twenty years. They say the Japanese soldiers eventually turned to cannibalism. I thought about doing the hike myself. Five days is a bit much. The dry season was ending. I decided against it.

LUKE: Are you saying the Japanese never invaded Western Samoa?

LESBIAN: I was on Tarawa in the Gilbert Islands. That was as far as they got. You must be confused.

LUKE: I'm not confused; I'm sheepish. It wouldn't be the first time.

LESBIAN: The music box is missing. It looks as though another heirloom's been stolen.

LUKE: I'm not the one who took it: that's for sure. See you at the airport, mate.

– ACT II, lines 574-582

LESBIAN: I'm going in.

FLETCHER: (off) I'll hold her apart; you stick it in from up there.

GREY GOOSE: (off) It won't go.

FLETCHER: (off) Push.

GREY GOOSE: (off) It's stuck.

KOKOMO: (off) It's too tight. Ouch!

FLETCHER: (off) You're going to rip her apart. Give me that.

MS. JACKSON: My God! What are they doing to her? Quick, Homo: go in there and stop them before they hurt the poor thing.

– ACT I, lines 1036-1043

(KOKOMO exits.)

GREY GOOSE: Excellent! The day of reckoning has come at last. For too long now, the crimes of my distant past have tarried and o'er me their shadows cast. Restitution's been made, Heavenly King! Grant that my wife be open to forgive a reformed man, who only wants to live in his own home - not like a fugitive on an island full of gossiping cows, who whisper lies, make innuendo, roll their eyes and giggle nonsense, and yet dole out their judgments as if they were a whole judge and jury. Let them bear witness that no woman will run me out of my own home - even if I have to burn it down!

– ACT I, lines 251-251

FLETCHER: Bigger than your husband.

LESBIAN: Or so I'm told. I didn't actually see them. What I saw was smaller: about six or seven feet. They had these big beaks and enormous eyes made from concentric circles: each circle colored differently from the next. They looked like crazed chickens dancing around like that. Of course, with masks so big, the focus turns to a dancer's legs, the swaying of his hips-

MS. JACKSON: And everything in between.

ALICE: Ms. Jackson!

LESBIAN: His arms are busy holding up the mask.

MS. JACKSON: I'm not surprised: making women do the work.

LESBIAN: I wonder if any Polynesians use a big mask. Would your cook know?

MS. JACKSON: Probably not. Where is my cook? Does she know the kitchen still needs cleaning?

FLETCHER: Why are you looking at me?

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'll never win with my wife. I used to support her all the time. Until she told me to stop. She said, "Don't coach me. I don't need a coach." So I stopped. I listen to my wife. When she apologizes I'll be there to hear it. I'll accept. That's what husbands do. They listen. They accept. God help them. They clog the toilet.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on reality as I remember it

Proctor took Simmons with him to John Gamble's apartment. Gamble opened the door. He was a pale willowy blond man with thin glasses. He seemed shocked to see them. "What's going on, officers," he asked. "I mean, detectives." His voice was trembling. "Is this about the serial killer?"

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring an investigator put in a weird position

I got off the bus at a small town. It was a two hour wait for the minibus to the village. People in the square stared at me. I kept hearing the words, "Dirty chocolate. Wipe your face." Something possessed me to buy a towel and a box of chocolates. I walked around with them. It made me feel like I was in on a joke.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes life as we have been given it, though hopefully we can change it

The case against Captain Orbitz stymied. The investigation plodded on. It was discovered that Orbitz had recently purchased a ship, the Nautilus. It was capable of inter-brane travel. He was seen in private conversation with an enginner from a planet abandoned by the Alliance to marauding Scutus forces. He was in constant contact with the lieutenant in charge of operating the prototype for an automated combat system. All of it curious. None of it meaningful. When the funding for the combat system was discontinued as part of a swath of spending cuts it generated the usual bitterness and threats among the interested parties. Among them turned out to be Orbitz. Within one microarcsecond of the announcement he tendered his resignation. It was an outrage. He was the poster child of the military. If he didn't want to be a courier anymore he could have a desk job. He could be a liaison. Or a recruiter. He didn't have to quit. According to Orbitz he could no longer serve a government that didn't safeguard its own citizens. As far as the Admiralty could tell he was referring to some outlying garbage planet. It was obscene.

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

A retired mathematician lived on Profile directly across from the hill. He specialized in probability theory. One day while sipping a cup of tea in his kitchen he realized that two mail trucks coming down the hill on two separate roads that met at the bottom and had to stop to service boxes at the exact same spot could potentially be rolling down the hill at the same time and if one carrier wasn't careful enough could be observed engaging in a significant but nevertheless comical collision. The professor happened to be, as Mark knew from his mail, an amateur photographer. He set about recording the times at which he observed the carriers proceeding up the hill and the times at which he observed them coming down. He noticed that if both regular carriers were on duty a collision would never occur. Both of them were too slow. But if one particularly fast substitute carrier, namely Mark, was coupled with the other regular carrier, namely Bill, he could calculate the probability of a collision based on the times at which he saw them climbing up the hill. This excited the professor immensely.

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
