At present, cherished acquaintances of mine, I have decided on utilising twofold the quantity of terms than customary. This I have done since both expressions are interconnected to each other in denotation, constructing it thus that it appears just as reasonable to discuss both. Furthermore, I do this for the reason that I delight in the sound of this alliteration.
Ok, I believe those three sentences took me more time than any normal blog I have written so far, and it isn't even good enough in my opinion. It's all I have to work with I fear, since I neither have the will nor time to think of better things. Next thing tomorrow will be school so I actually wanted to turn into bed fairly soon. Go to sleep, I mean, turned into bed I have already done as I am lying sadly enough not so very comfortable on my mattress, typing this. "Turn into bed", is that even the correct phrase? It sounds like I have the power of metamorphosis and can change my appearance into one of a bed. Oh well, I don't care as I'm sure you will understand what I was trying to say.
The words I have chosen today are Gnomic and Gobbledygook. I saw them in the dictionary (where else would you find words like that?) and wondered why on earth they exist. The first one was/is rather normal, but firstly I thought it was a derivative of gnome, you know, those little midgets or whatever. Nope, seems it actually means "clever but often difficult to understand". It's from the Greek "gnome" (my dictionary -and therefore I too- was too lazy too look up the Greek word in it's original form (with the correct alphabet) so just look it up yourself if you must know) meaning thought and opinion. Sure, I thought, why not discuss this? In fact, before trying to write the first three sentences of this blog, I really wanted to actually discuss the terms I choose. Then I decided to just try and explain them with a (poorly executed attempt of) an example?
To at least make sure I get the two terms illustrated by means of boringly telling you exactly what they mean, here is the second term. Gobbledygook, a brilliant word if I may say so myself, hail to the person who came with it first, is language that is difficult to understand because of excessive use of technical terms. It is probably imitating the sound of a turkey's gobble, which is the best part of it I believe. Seriously, I like those onomatopoeic things, it's real interesting that some people in this world were lazy yet brilliant enough to just name something exactly the way it sounds. This word is just like the Greek "barbaroi" (this time I really tried but I can't find the correct alt-codes) meaning barbarians. The Greek came up with that name because the language of those people sounded like "barbarbar" to them. I want these kinds of names back in modern language, really. Life would be so much more fun if it were the case.
I don't want to stay up under my bedsheets staring at a laptop emitting too much heat for the little space around it. I'd collapse and fall asleep soon enough anyway so this is it for today, see you tomorrow, with yet another word of the day, this time starting with an.... *sings the alphabet song up and until the "H" to herself* (I ain't ashamed, just a little bit foolish because I have to sing it to know which letter is next) .... H! Next time is the letter "H". ^-^
