Sticks and Stones can break my Bones, But Words can never hurt me
I remember say this when I was younger. I woke up this morning with this saying going through my head. Welcome to the world of words. Words have a life of their own. Just like Sticks and Stones, Words can hurt.
Everything reflected in reality, comes from words. If we don’t have a word for it, we make one up. Ideas, thoughts, actions, emotions, feelings, everything one can imagine and express has a word attached to it.
In language, a word is the smallest element that may be uttered in isolation with semantic or pragmatic content (with literal or practical meaning)
In the Beginning of Words
In the beginning there was the word and the word was… So the word was the beginning. Words must be important. Yet we use them as if they don’t have any power. When if fact, words are powerful vibrations the create powerful effects. The creator used word vibrations in the creation. Words must be tools for creation for without them nothing would exist. In fact, “the” is the most used word in The Bible. In the English language, words come from the combining of 26 characters. These characters are like characters in a stage play. All taking part in creating a scene by playing their parts. Some characters are given more importance with capitalization and marks that are called accents. These characters play their roles in a play called life. As we sit back and watch the play unfold it’s meaning.
A word may consist of a single morpheme. In linguistics, a morpheme is the smallest grammatical unit in a language. The field of study dedicated to morphemes is called morphology. A morpheme is not identical to a word, and the principal difference between the two is that a morpheme may or may not stand alone, where a word, by definition, is freestanding. Every word comprises one or more morphemes. What important to note here is the word morpheme. The root word is morph, to be transformed. Breaking the word down to its two components it’s Morph -e- me. One can extract the meaning of this word as Transform me. Words have the power to transform using morphology.
Words can be put together to build larger elements of language, such as phrases. The term word may refer to a spoken word or to a written word, or sometimes to the abstract concept behind either. Spoken words are made up of units of sound vibration called phonemes, and written words of symbols called graphemes, such as the letters of the English alphabet, a minimal unit of a writing system. A unit of a writing system consisting of all the written symbols or sequences of written symbols that are used to represent a single phoneme.
Phoneme, to make a sound, are any of a small set of sound units, usually about 20 to 60 in number, and different for each language, considered to be the basic distinctive units of speech sound by which morphemes, words, and sentences are represented. They are arrived at for any given language by determining which differences in sound function to indicate a difference in meaning. Or to create different vibrational effects.
Words are a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds, that functions as a principle carrier of meaning. One might consider here a carrier wave in principal. Carrying the creative power of the word or words spoken. The purpose of the carrier is either to send the information through space as an electromagnetic wave, or to allow several carriers at different frequencies to share a common physical transmission medium. So by definition, Words are electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves are vibrations of frequency with the power to create or destroy.
Words and the Electromagnetic Spectrum
Everything exist in the electromagnetic spectrum. The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. The “electromagnetic spectrum” of an object has a different meaning, and is instead the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by that particular object. This electromagnetic energy travels a the speed of light. When a person absorbs this energy it affects them in unknown ways. Listen to what you say, and say what you mean. Or say nothing at all.
As stated, Words are tools that can be used to create or destroy. As with any tool its use is in the hands of the person wishing to effect a change. Read the manual, and use the tool with care and caution to prevent injury.
An expression or utterance: a word of warning.
