What about all of those words?


Hey guys,

Have you ever truly wondered about what words mean? They could mean tons of things of course, from conveying an upsetting event that has passed, or to suggesting two people spend the rest of their lives together. Words are a really powerful device in this world today and I just feel like I should write about them a bit.

I have had many incidents where I have said something and then later, kick myself in the teeth after thinking of something else I could have said that would have portrayed my emotion much better. Really, aside from facial gestures (though they speak 1000 words themselves), you have your word choice by your side to influence and create anything you desire in this world. This world is a blank book, a large book for that matter. If you were to be the one peering into it from above as an uncertain identity, you could read a large history of people that have made the world shake, lovers who have gained, those who have lost, and peace that has been made just for a few examples. Now, is that not the most incredible thing you have ever thought about?

Imagine a world where people could not speak. Do it, right now………………………..How did it look to you? Were there a lot of happy faces? Were there movements and divisions? Were there technological advances, food sharing, a clear set of who was on top and who was on bottom? I would like to know from you how the world looks without words. Reply in the comments box; I am interested to see what people say (using words).

This really all came about just because I was thinking…..of course, as usual. One thing that is said to me from a particular person can have entirely different value to me from another person who says the same thing. How it is said, what the person looks like when they are saying it, and the amount of passion and emotion I can receive from the individual makes all the difference to me. There are people who I want to tell me certain things, and must wait for that moment. Then there are also other people I hope that never tell me other certain things.

In the life we live, one word, one sentence, one empowering vocal release of one’s self can change just so much in an instant.

Take care,

I am a professional talker, but amateur blogger. I am working on getting my word out there to you guys slowly but surely. I love being in the loop in today's world, the things that go on, pop culture, music, and events. I am the kind of person who looks at life and thinks about it in the deepest and craziest way. My mind wonders over the many thoughts and conversations within my head while my body endures the physical wonders of the world. I have contemplated talking about my thoughts for a while now, and this is my first attempt to share to you what I think of the world. :)

  1. In a world without spoken words, humans would have adapted to form another method of communication. It is possible that Braille may be the main means of transferring information, which would lead to the same result of potential miscommunication due to semantic differences. On the other side of the spectrum, it is possible that, due to the inability of emphasis on particular words, that words would have a more “pure” meaning, I.E. they would not be nearly as dependent on context, and would have a more unified sense.

    Let’s use the example: “I didn’t fail the test.”; assuming that the word in the forward slashes is emphasized, it will modify what the sentence means.

    “/I/ didn’t fail the test” implies that someone other than you failed.
    “I /didn’t/ fail the test” implies that you’re trying to convince someone that you passed
    “I didn’t /fail/ the test” implies that you attained another result — probably not favorable
    “I didn’t fail /the/ test” implies that you’ve failed a different test
    “I didn’t fail the /test/” implies that you’ve failed something other than the test

    If we remove the potential of people emphasizing particular sentences, and that they must be communicated in such a way that makes such a task exceptionally difficult (as body language would not convey emphasis as well as your voice would), I would foresee people being affected differently by it.

    If you are a generally positive person, it would have a mainly positive effect. This would be because that kind of person would be more likely to look for the best way to interpret is (in the sense of positive versus negative), and would see it as something that may be more positive than it was intended.

    If you are a generally negative person, I believe it would not be beneficial, given that people who are negative would tend to see the ways that it could be taken in an aggressive, depressive way.

    For example: if you were to receive constructive criticism, “You could consider doing this, but it is alright as it is.”, this could leave the impression that they are trying to help you, and are trying to show you a better way of doing the task. Alternatively, you could read into the sentence, and have it mean that they are disappointed in what you are doing, and are begrudgingly accepting the task as is.

    In short, I believe it would not be beneficial, nor would it be negative. If people were unable to speak words, it would affect each person individually, as they each have their own perspective on what it could mean.

    • You are very right Renycs. I love your explanation! I can definitely see how being a negative or positive individual could influence how you take other’s actions. Without words though, would it be plausible to assume an individual would not comprehend a difference between a praise or a seemingly attack at one’s self? That could get a little deeper. Love what you had to say đŸ™‚
