    I'm tempted to believe that Synarch is just trying to turn the tables on you, Cap'n.

    Men who unnecessarily use big words are usually compensating for their diminutive-sized dicks. :P

    As you know from reading my diary, I like words. I like trying to find just the right word to capture the nuance of what I am thinking. I also like how evocative certain words can be. It's a bit like magic. Words, I mean. We forget how magical they can be now that we are inundated with them. Literacy being commonplace has robbed it of a certain potency.

    But, I think of times past when words were regarded as something almost sacred. The knowledge of language, especially written language, as something worthy of reverence, a key to another level of understanding; a mechanism for capturing knowledge. Consider the Norse myths: Odin and how he was crucified on the World Tree in Hel for nine days to learn the secret of the runes. Words can drill into another person's mind and make pictures there. How amazing.

    This might be more interesting if you explained it better. Care to expand or solidify your thinking?

    Words fall forever short whenever we need them the most, to communicate the next ungraspable "thing".

    We use them to both describe and carve out meaning.

    But, the deeper you dig, and the more complex and abstract you get, you find yourself fumbling for the right, and oftentimes, nonexistent words, to say the very least, it can be frustrating.

    Are you offended by my big words or my pompensation for having a small penis. Thus proving the point of we'll say english for example bein so young and half ass that it can't comprehend big words so easily. Or it can't regognize big word meaning in its fitting into syntax and morphology. Who knows. English sure doesn't.

    This is not a failure of language. This is a failure of thinking.

    Any idea, fully understood, can be explained. I live by this, so when I cannot explain an idea, I know I must not fully understand it myself. This is why teaching what you know can improve your grasp of a thing. So many times I am called upon to explain something I "know" only to find myself flailing in explaining, which reveals how little I really knew in the first place.

    Lol, I was just playing.

    But, I have realized that I find effective communication to be economical in style.

    Jargon, and esoteric words should only be used when appropriate, (when in the right crowd), or when necessary, (when absolutely no other word could take its place in explaining the point.)
