Whether, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is thinking about the practicality of boosting his monstrous Fiction Corpus with some real non fiction articles; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the prospect of harnessing English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't trust in the tepid ground plan by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Upgrading one's know-how with a language isn't like bringing about a more flexible variety of bamboo. A language - a common language - isn't merely an instrument that you can learn to employ with greater amounts of precision. A shared tongue can not be bisected from the competing values of a clan 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 pupil recite English is to rob him of its cultural context. A proper teacher must find a method of introducing it; the smartest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words based on a particular corpus, a body of written works of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to some very short stories. I watched many nights pass forging my "unimposing" Fiction Corpus to form a peculiar 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 crafted a million words and I have examined them, reformulating them - not merely to teach a tongue but to reveal the human soul, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Whether

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 whether in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Whether 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.

Did the first man who successfully defended himself against one of those predators do so with a weapon? If so, whether that weapon was a rock, a spear, a bone, or a horn, did he throw it? or did he hold it in his hand? More importantly, did the first man to hunt down successfully one of those predators do so by holding his weapon? or by throwing it? Which was preferred? Which left the most men living? Which was admired more by the womenfolk? Are we the children of those who threw their weapons? or those who held them?

Verse 4 from the chapter called Arms

"This morning, before I left for the battlefield, I asked my grandfather's nephew whether he would join me for church. He's half-Czech, by the way. You know what he said? He said he would go to church only if the farář paid him - farář is their word for priest - but seeing as how he's expected to pay the farář, there's no way that he would ever go."

We were silent again.

Verses 906-907 from the chapter called Bohemia

"It was very big news back then, I assure you - and I'm not surprised that they found it. You'll notice that Treblinka has at least one of everything. It makes you never want to leave: one theatre, one basilica, one convent, one rotunda, and one homo erectus archeological dig. Now, you might not be ready to believe this, but, in the campsite - the homo erectus campsite - they found rhinoceros bones - and, whether or not you choose to believe, as the scientists have already assumed, that primitive man hunted rhinoceros, I hope you come to accept the simple fact that, at some point, we even entertained a wild rhinoceros in our midst. Can you image hunting wild rhinoceros around here? With a pointy stick?"

Verse 458 from the chapter called Security

"Regardless whether anyone sent them, now that they exist, and they're here, we have to fight them."

"I agree, of course."

Verses 296-297 from the chapter called Bohemia

In the second grade, your father kissed a girl. It was nice, but Jesus was scared: he wasn't sure whether kids would laugh or be jealous - or maybe both. So he didn't tell a single soul.

Usage of Whether 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 wondered whether someone had moved it: I don't think I could ever see into the kitchen so clearly before - but this time, sitting down before it, I could see Indiana standing where she was by her cutting board. She saw me smiling.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 13, The Role of Music, Paragraph 4

NIKE: Because no matter who she is, why would she admit that she was walking around half-naked? Why would she say that she was never wearing a tunic? She's hiding that.

INDIE: Alright, but Nike: the police can check her out. They know whether she's a nun or not.

NIKE: And so what?

INDIE: So if they know she's not a nun, why would they think that she's some random woman who likes to dress up in a veil? I mean, it's absurd.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 5, Talking Through A Problem With A Friend, Paragraphs 36-39

Macy gave me a quick look, and then, resting his eyes on his pint glass, he asked me: "Do you think it was his punishment?" I said: "Certainly, at least in a poetic sense." And Macy, slowly cocking his head and lifting his eyes, opened his mouth again: "It seems to me it was inevitable, whether he eloped or not. Did the infertility make his marriage any less valuable?"

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 13, Bringing Up a Delicate Subject, Paragraph 3

We started walking down the road. I was a few steps in front, Indiana behind me holding her husband's arm. It was pleasant walking, but, before long, I realized I shouldn't be leading the party. I stopped and waited for the couple. As Albert was passing me, he asked whether I wouldn't mind taking the Underground. "Certainly not," I said, and, turning behind them, I started following step. But soon Indiana twisted herself and offered me her hand; I was obliged. She took her husband's hand as well, and, smiling boisterously, she made the three of us walk down Holland Park hand in hand.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 10, Polyandry, Paragraph 24

Knowing that Indiana would ask: why the filthy face? I was hoping I could think of some funny story to cheer her up. But when she did ask me, there was no funny story. Instead, I felt foolish. I told her I was closing the fireplace: someone had forgotten to close the flue, and: "I sneezed." She told me to go wash my face. She was ready to insist, but we were already standing by the open door. We left, and that's how we drove home: one black face, one red face. There was very little conversation. We entered the car in silence and that's how it remained. I was pretty sure an explanation was coming at some point, so I wasn't going to fish for it. But I was hoping it would come in the car - because that way, one can always concentrate on the road. I have very little patience for grief, whether it be warranted or not.

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.

It's hard to say whether Ferrari loved his mother. She died of plague when he was young. Often he would try to remember what she was like by cuddling next to a pillow and pretending it was her. He grew out of that. Like many children who have lost parents, the energy that would have gone into pleasing his mother was devoted to a general resentment of other people, which he hid, and a feeling of entitlement, which manifested itself more obviously.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story featuring a flautist

Much fiction surrounds the names Gog and Magog. According to my understanding, they were not giants or blood-thirsty monsters. They were not fallen angels. They were one man and one woman. They apparently loved each other, though they often quarreled. Whether or not they made up half their adventures is beside the point. They were definitely the first people to circumnavigate the world. The evidence for that, though circumstantial, is overwhelming.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a barbarian

"It carries your most important things," said Nyota. "Whether it's your phone or your make-up."

"This is my clutch bag," said Debbie, squeezing her arm around her husband. Harry Connick squirmed.

Junior turned to Nyota. "I always wondered what those were called. It's a good name. I should give it to my horse. 'Clutch Bag to win.' It's got a nice ring to it."

"You own a race horse?"

Junior nodded. "A few."

"Are they thoroughbreds?"

"Of course."

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring a frank discussion of what to do with a diseased horse

Tae walked along Kwon's field. He saw his friend washing clothes in the river. He waved. His friend waved back. Tae approached the front of the ship. In the distance, he saw Hong and Do. He waved to them. They didn't see. He passed Kong and Jing's fields. He wondered whether Kong were in Jing's tent or Jing in Kong's. He thought, somebody should tell them to put their tents together-on the other hand, he concluded, they might not be ready for that.

– from “How Tae & Bo Took Over the World and Kung & Fu Didn't,” an apocryphal bible story featuring twelve people left to themselves

Eventually, somebody complained of a water leak. A radiator was found crushed up against a window. Patsy was attached to the other end. Hoisted onto terra firma, he wasn't sure whether he was still alive. Opening his eyes, he giggled at the dumbfounded emergency workers. He whispered, "What beautiful angels."

Usage of Whether 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.

LESBIAN: I can put this one back. No one can accuse me of stealing it. I just borrowed it to show that some things in life are more important than others. Whom am I kidding? I took it to get into my landlady's panties. I'm a terrible human being. There have been worse than me - like the person who stabbed that poor girl sixty-two times: the first murderer this island has had to fear in more than one hundred and fifty years. Both suspect and victim were like me: alien to this place. Why did we come? What did we hope to find? Peace? We scared her off. Happiness? Satisfaction? Understanding? Why here? Why do we trespass on other people's land? It stands in our way - but of what? There's nothing beyond what's right in front of us at any given time. There's no way of knowing that unless you trespass. All that one can hope to do is make as little damage as possible along the way. We are all criminals, whether we like it or not. Though some of us are big and some of us small, we are all cut from the same dough. That's not the easiest thing to believe when one man robs or kills another man. What was my crime? Why am I punished? Why am I the only one who's alone? Or is it just my imagination? Are there others out there who can see me? Who know me? Who can feel my pain? If there are, I salute you. I would kiss you if I could. I can't, so I just say, 'Thank you.'

– ACT II, line 583

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.

– ACT II, lines 347-355

FLETCHER: Or whether I knew where to get some. I became so curious as to its inspirational qualities I had to try it out for myself.

ALICE: Did you like it?

FLETCHER: I loved it. I was full of incredible ideas. Unfortunately, afterwards I couldn't remember a single one.

ALICE: You didn't write them down?

FLETCHER: I was in no mood to write things down - not with any amount of clarity.

ALICE: You must have had some great revelations.

FLETCHER: That it wasn't worth my while: a point later made very clear to me by the axe which Kokomo was wielding.

ALICE: The mysterious axe-woman was Kokomo.

FLETCHER: She found my stash. It upset her.

ALICE: I couldn't imagine lifting an axe, let alone threatening you with one.

– ACT II, lines 111-120

FLETCHER: I'm glad you liked it.

LESBIAN: We happened to see your father looking down on us the whole time from a cliff.

FLETCHER: What do you mean?

LESBIAN: He was staring at us the entire morning from a cliff. I thought he was going to jump.

FLETCHER: He was just standing there?

LESBIAN: He was just standing there.

LUKE: I went up to him. He was only watching us bathe.

ALICE: I hope he liked it.

FLETCHER: Don't mind him. My father's a bit crazy. One time, I woke up in the middle of the night. It was about three in the morning. I saw him standing in front of a pine tree, trying to decide whether or not he should chop it down. This was three in the morning. There was absolutely no reason for him to chop it down. It was really quite bizarre.

– ACT I, lines 55-63

FLETCHER: There was a girl who tried to kill me. She came after me with an axe. It reminded me of Susannah's story.

ALICE: What made you want to write a play about it?

FLETCHER: Mull.

ALICE: I'm sorry?

FLETCHER: Isn't that what you Australians like to call it?

ALICE: I guess.

FLETCHER: It's the modern artist's drug of choice.

ALICE: Even here on Norfolk?

FLETCHER: There was a time when every other artistically-inclined tourist I met asked me about it.

ALICE: Whether you had any?

– ACT II, lines 101-110

Usage of Whether 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.

Due to a law passed by the town government the development was never completed. Of the houses that were built all were on Login Road and passed to City Rural Route 15 with the exception of one house which was on Login Road but faced Profile. Its address was Profile at the end of a vast stretch of undeveloped land with no mailboxes. Logically it would have made sense for the city carrier to service that mailbox. Fortunately logic had nothing to do with the process. Profile was rural territory. Any box on Profile belonged to the rural craft. The only question was whether it would be Rural Route 4, Rural Route 2, or Rural Route 6 which gained the prize.

– from “Wrong Again,” a success story inspired by real events, though the details are fictional

On the next day one of the old men was back. I asked him to come inside but he stayed at the window. He wanted to know where I was from. I gave him a brief history of my country and we started arguing over European aid to Africa and whether the Soviet Union was right to have ever been there. It seemed like no matter what I said I was wrong. At least the man treated me like a civil human being. Until he got angry with me and left. I went back to teaching my imaginary class.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that isn't factual and yet is very true no matter who you are

Jeff suddenly stopped grooming. He came close and said, "I hear you're a virgin. Is that right?" I was taken completely by surprise. It took me a moment to nod yes. "I've had sex once in my life," said Jeff. "I regret having done it. I want you to know. In case you have the wrong impression." He went back to grooming. He left after a while. I sat listening to tree crickets. One pitched high. The other pitched low. As if they were discussing the disturbing growth of cicadas in the neighborhood and whether they should just move out. By dark the cicadas were everywhere. The constant buzz left me adrift. Jeff's words like a raft bubbling up and down in my head. To think he and I could be anything alike.

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.
