    The Oddity of Words.
    The Oddity of Words.“You have to be odd to be number one.” Dr. SeussTheodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), author of 42 children’s books, didn’t like kids. As Geisel once confessed, “You have’m, I’ll amuse’m.” He created The Cat In the Hat because he found Dick and Jane boring....

    Great piece @Robert Cormack! Loved every word. Interesting about portmanteau. I assume it took a nonsensical word from another language to give the English ones a name. Cc @Pascal Derrien. What do you make of portmanteau Pascal?

    Wonderful post @Lisa Vanderburg! This made me do a bit of deep thinking. I remember my mom asking me when I was little if I had butterflies in my tummy? I thought there was a chance I had a few flying around inside there. She did explain what she meant by butterflies when I was old enough to realize, that couldn't be possible.

    You know @Sara Jacobovici- my stand on this issue. Imagination and metaphors are inseparable twin. People who object to metaphors shall fail to communicate and come out with creative ideas. We use metaphors without realizing that we are using them. Let me explain- I read a buzz in which the author attacked brutally metaphors. I read his buzz and commented- you stand against metaphors, but do you realize how many metaphors are embedded in your words? There were more than fifteen of them. I then commented again showing the hidden metaphors in his article. An author discarding metaphors when he was vividly using them. This is a paradox for you to solve Sara. Anyway, the article was deleted post to my comment.
    I am sure lots of authors who object to metaphors use them without realizing they do.

    Metaphors are expansive, the way people may make use of them can be limiting.
    I can yet to work my way around using them and this article explains the language of imagination vividly. Thank you Sara

    Speaking of metaphors, using a hammer to remove a screw conveys so much.... a one time operation, full of destruction, rather than applying the right tool, which provides a sustainable option of rescrewing and unscrewing as often as necessary.

    A fitting celebration for a word that enhances our communications toolbox in so many ways, @Sara Jacobovici

    Excellent, sweet lady @Sara Jacobovici; I'm loving the ball you're running with! And I like what #2 @debasish majumder says about friction - we need the 'grip' to impel ourselves forward, so often provided by others often quite unintentionally or by ourselves; again often naturally.
    Got me thinking about inertia and Newton's law: '1. An object at rest tends to stay at rest. 2. An object in motion tends to stay in motion.'
    Even that serves a purpose in motion - designed for essential rest or renewal...and to come to its end so motion may continue. Looks like our wonderful friend @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee has inspired much fluidity!

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici- to reply in a comment is limiting the value of this great and thorough buzz. I plan to respond in a buzz.
    You wrote "Is it accurate to say that if it were not for movement, memory could not take place and in fact, life itself, depends on movement"? You are right and I shall elaborate more in my forthcoming buzz with scientific proof. Great buzz that keeps the mind buzzy. I am honored to be involved in writing this buzz indirectly.

    Why do we see coexistence as opposites? This is very highly elaborated in your powerful buzz dear @Sara Jacobovici. I have your sense running in my blood. Yes, we say light and darkness but they are always together, nevermind in varying percentages.
    Is it due to our habitual reductionist approach? We reduce coexisting elements to their parts and for convenience we place them at dead ends?
    Why humans drive to think in parts and not the whole. All living systems adapt to their environment as they realize what is in balance now may be off balance a minute later? Do we need to evolve our thinking to think in terms of coexistence insteads of two opposites sitting on opposing ends? I am surely going to find a way for coexistence whenever I think of two opposites. Creation is coexisting and not separation.
    @Sara Jacobovici- you made my day. Thank you

    What is or isn't acceptable changes over the years. Imagine if a critic wrote this today "The Beggars Opera made Gay rich and Rich gay.
    Googling the quote puts it way down the listing after much about rich gay people.
    It illustrates how word meanings can change and turn innocent remarks into taboo ones. It is risky to describe a happy person as gay.

    I agree with you, Renée, that the 'shock value', of what many of us refer to as Anglo-Saxon words, decreases with repetition. The coarseness of those 'Old English' words in your list, however, still tends to raise hackles and offend the ear for those not bombarded with them daily, and repetitive use of 'Fs' and 'Cs' even more so, particularly when the intention of the verbal bombardment if to sling insults. Personally I have always found that a good command of expressive language, with a wide range of fittingly chosen adjectives before a well chosen illustrative noun, achieves the insult slinging objective in a much more effective manner, particularly if those adjectives are not in common daily use. It appears that there were whole flotillas of such successfully combined insults in Shakespearean times and, indeed, a beBee post was written on this, some time back, by a worthy proponent. Unfortunately, I have retained neither the post link nor its author. I do, however, have a list of some of these Shakespearean adjectives and nouns, from which the following alliterated combinations have been drawn:
    "frothy, fly-bitten, fustilarian";
    "bawdy, bat-fowling, baggage";
    "puny, plume-plucked, puttock"; and
    "churlish, clapper-clawed, codpiece."
    Having watched your entertaining George Carlin video, Renée, surely there can be no doubt about the intended context of these word combinations?

    Great post and history on the evolution of language @Renée 🐝 Cormier. Funny? Sad? A little of both I guess. Words are just that, words. Context and intention convey the "meaning". Its too bad (some) people feel the need to label the "word" and subsequently the person who said it regardless of that intention or context.

    @Renée 🐝 Cormier I love this buzz. True story. About six weeks ago I visited my mother in law. She is 90. I was tired and cranky after the 10 hr car ride. My favourite word is the F-bomb. I used it. She tore into me like I was a five year old. Totally ruined my entire visit. This past weekend. Nearly 90-year-old lady and I were volunteering together as house sitters on a garden tour. Her favourite word. The occasional F-bomb. I have a new best friend.

    Is it me.....? The book, Strategic Storytelling, is described as, “a complete guide to creating persuasive business presentations." Strategic Storytelling....I was just starting to get used to the terms Personal Branding and Content Marketing. Interesting to see that the words themselves are marketing driven; can’t just talk about the importance of storytelling, it needs to be referred to as Strategic Storytelling. What is that, storytelling on steroids? Is there a glossary out there to keep up with this new vocabulary for words that still have the same meaning. After all, it’s still all about communication.

    Sense and purpose and their intertwining are beautifully, elegantly and convincingly researched and elaborated in this concise buzz. I have just added in my mind that purpose is a sense. We start with senses to shape up our experiences, beliefs and then intention of our purpose. May be the link may be indirect, but the beginning of senses and ending with purpose show their genuine attachment. I need to read this buzz several time to gauge in your thinking dear @Sara Jacobovici. You have set simple rules for new thinking. Proud I am to have a mention in this high-quality buzz.

    #2 The details of how we develop our senses are quite intriguing @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. In the womb we actually have a "mixing" of senses. It's only when we begin to develop post natally through interaction with our environment and others that our senses begin to take their own route or branch. Just like we are born with the ability to produce all the sounds of all languages but most of us, once we engage in our mother tongue, if we don't learn other languages, we lose the ability to produce those other sounds. But, just like you say, and what I have posted over the last few buzzes, even if we are not officially synesthetic, our senses do blend or "reinforce" or "boost" each other. I love the examples you gave. They are right on!

    I am not familiar enough with those extra senses or I would call them cross-pollination of senses. In my writing I now recall writing statements like"
    I hear the music in your words or,
    your comment tastes deliciously in my mouth
    I believe that senses reinforce each other or the loss of one sense may boost another sense. One way of reinforcing each other is their cross-pollination.

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici- I am sure there are people with extra powerful senses and you open my mind to try understand more how these people got this extra power. Thank you. Sharing.

    Sorry for the bad verse Ken... Your post reminded me of something I read in a Churchill biography. Apparently he hated people who whistled, and would publicly dress them down for doing so.

    Over 20 years ago, @Sara Jacobovici, I was "branded" by others who saw me as a resource for American grammar rules and usage. Because I was able to answer a few questions from other leaders of the American grammar workshop that we all taught for the same international seminar firm, they called me the Grammar Goddess, a name I instantly loved! It's alliterative, fun, and memorable.

    And even though it can be seen as somewhat limiting because I also teach other types of communication skills, I continue to be grateful to those who tagged me with it so long ago.

    It has served me well.

    whole-body perceiving machines - this does make sense if we think of our development as an embryo represented in the form of disciplines like acupuncture, hand and foot reflexology, and the concept of the cortical homunculus where a map of body regions is depicted in size proportionally across the brain. Our body parts are inter-related in many ways.

    I have long been aware of feeling sounds, mostly in the form of unwanted vibrations, such as sounds from heavy construction machinery that cannot be masked via sound volume in my own vicinity because the vibrations are felt more than actually heard.

    A quick response : trust for me is a sense of wholeness & connectedness to everything. Trust feels grounded. Trust feels like I can lie down and I am safe and I can rest well. Trust feels like I am free to express anything as long as I am not hurting others - & I am accepted just the way I am & just the way I am not. Trust gives me permission to be excited, to cry, to dance a silly walk, to ask "dumb"questions, to be intimate, to sense freedom, to sense the darkness, to walk a tight rope, and when I truly sense trust i am safe.

    #9 It is very true that if we doubt ourselves, how can we be open minded enough and free enough to constructively apply doubt in an innovative or factual way. When doubt is made of the construct of fear it is a terrible and destructive thing, but when doubt is an instrument of learning, then the probing, exploring and learning we do with that instrument makes doubt a toolbox and not a statement of our own identity. Our emotions are also toolboxes that nature gave us - but have we have become the tool. Emotion is a beautiful thing as a spectrum but only if it does not lose its light.

Unfortunately there is the "psychological" doubt that @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. International Management, Certified Executive Coach. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. describes. When we begin to lose our sense of security, not feel grounded in our sense of self, then, "Doubts can destroy the quality of life."

    #7 because doubt is at the center of innovation and the scientific method. It takes a Galileo to question what society trusts.

    Great idea and I look for MOndays to read senses-related buzzes @Sara Jacobovici. Fascinating is what you wrote as you captured so many interesting facts about smell. I "smell" the fragrance of this buzz and I shall not get "bored" with it.

    Fantastic initiative dear Sara. We are sensory creatures no denying it. The smell that tops my list of smells is one of the Earth after the first sprinkle of rain. Currency notes smell comfy too ;) I recall the line - A rose by any other name would smell as sweet! And they do too! Thank you for a lovely buzz. We owe our senses everything.

    @Gert Scholtz, this is a wonderfully eclectic compilation of poetry. Each one paints its own story for the reader and easily transports to a place within where one can reflect, and perhaps connect. I truly enjoyed reading each of these and many kudos to the authors - you have done a wonderful job!

    @Mamen 🐝 Delgado @Sweta Parmar @Tausif Mundrawala Thank you for your wonderful comments. Tausif, your comments are poetic in itself: "Lets celebrate this wonderful festival of words where each and every word chimes like a bell with different tones left unexplored before. Lets pour those words through our truest self in order to reflect upon the unheard and unexplored territory of senses and emotions".

    Lets celebrate this wonderful festival of words where each and every word chimes like a bell with different tones left unexplored before. Lets pour those words through our truest self in order to reflect upon the unheard and unexplored territory of senses, emotions, happenings etc.

    Different words like different hues form shades of all the philosophies which were left unexplored. Thanks my friend,@Gert Scholtz once again.
