We can’t really change the semantics of language, but the semantics of language is changing. In the last couple of years, we have started to realize that the way we speak, write, or use words can affect our thoughts, feelings, and choices. I’m not talking about just the way you talk or write, but how you think.
In the last couple of years, we have started to realize that the way we speak, write, or use words can affect our thoughts, feelings, and choices. Im not talking about just the way you talk or write, but how you think. I think we’ve all experienced a “semantic relationship” between a word and our thoughts and feelings.
I’m not talking about just the way you talk or write, but how you think. I’m talking about how we think when we’re in a state of mind. Like when we think “I’m not feeling that way” or “I’m pissed off at that guy” or “I’m angry at my boss.
Im talking about how we think when Im thinking that way, when Im angry, when Im frustrated, or when Im drunk.
In general, we think in more than one way. I think you’re right to say that we think in multiple ways, but in general what we think, when we think, what we feel, what we hear, what we see, what we think of, what we read, what we think our friends are thinking, what we think about our own thoughts, and all the other ways that we think that we don’t mean the same thing by all the things we think.
The problem with this is that we can’t actually articulate our thoughts and feelings so we just end up repeating them over and over and over again, kind of like the same song over and over. What really makes it hard to put into words is that we don’t really know what they are.
A long time ago, I was a math teacher who had a lot of math homework problems. That seemed so uninteresting and boring. The only reason I would take it seriously was when I found a teacher who was reading it, and she had done it before, and she had a lot of interesting ideas, and she was doing it for a living.
The way we use language is really important. It’s not enough to just be able to explain something, you have to understand it. And since we don’t really understand what a word means, it’s really hard to explain. My friend and I spent the day trying to explain the word’semantics’ to a bunch of fifth graders. It was a really bad attempt.
The problem is, that if you are trying to explain the semantics of a word, then it is almost impossible to explain a word that has two meanings. If you want to be able to explain that “a cat has four legs,” just talk about cats, and not all cats are four legs.
The best way to explain the semantics of a word is to show them something that a cat does. Or, to show them something that a cat is. And since cats are pretty complex, I think we can agree it would just be impossible to explain the semantics of a cat. The same applies to humans. If you wanted to explain the semantics of humans, you would have to show them something that a human does. And that’s pretty difficult to do when that something is a cat.
