    Re: Yakadelic Odyssey (aka "the daily babble")

    OK, given the recent discussion about language hygeine (not oral hygeine, that's toothbushing)

    I have been having a thunk. I have come to the conclusion we may have too many words.

    Could we simplify our world by having one collective noun? Which one?

    We have a flock of birds and a flock of sheep.

    Why not a flock of patients, schoolchildren or lions?

    Why do we need gaggles and prides and all the other stuff

    Would we think less if we had less words in which to think?

    Could we still express ourselves?

    Does it matter? probably not, I was just wondering.....

    There is at least one entire book, and probably more, on the various collective nouns of the English language. It's a language just made for mental masturbation!

    I think we should all speak Irish (Gaelic). That would surely simplify the amount of words we need.

    Don't speak it? Start learning now.

    Eventually, I think the language will simplify.  I just use "group".

    You could try making up a new "universal" word, and start using it, and it may become a new word.  Thus the beginning of the end will begin.


    Makes me wonder when AQAL will make it into Webster's. lol.

    Hmm...of course, if you make up a new universal word, we'll just end up with one MORE word, now won't we?  Hmm [^o)]

    Vortex,

    Really now, if  the gaelic has to be the universal language, it would have to be Scottish gaelic.

    I think definitely, we will always be able to express ourselves.  I think we use words just to hear ourselfs talk and the more words we have in our volcabulary the more we think we are intelligent.  I think the question should be can we stop talking in order to really listen.Wink [;)]

    Re: Yakadelic Odyssey (aka "the daily babble")

    Okay. Good. Just checking.

    So, are we going to be switching forums regularly every year, now?

    Nah. Maybe not.


    Yes. Words. Love the idea. New words. Old words.

    Hyperdimensional translinguistic visible language- oops!


    It`s that McKenna influence again.

    He`s on Google video, now, too.

    Words. Words. Words.


    My Japanese sucks, by the way.

    They all answer me in English, so that doesn`t help.


    Didn`t I read a new phrase today? "phoning it in"


    Yes. "Phil is not doing much at work these days. Anymore, he`s just phoning it in."

    Sounds like the new "out to lunch."


    How about an interesting Japanese word?

    "YA-BEY!" or, yabei- if you can get it.

    That means "OH, NO!" or "That`s bad."

    "There is a theory that states that if anyone ever discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

    There is another which states that this has already happened."
