CROSSING 600 POSTS.

This is my 611th post.

Feeling really, really good. Because the path of my life on writing is so far, so good.

Of course, it is not a huge momentum. It is the time to turn back, the day I started writing my 1st post almost 2 years before.

 I seriously have no idea about the writing and way of writing. But I just started writing, writing and writing. I knew that I don’t have the proper writing.

What I mean is my objective of writing a post is considerably good. But the writing formats, grammar, framing the sentences and paragraphs are not okay. Still now I struggle to do it.

I feel like that’s okay.

At some point, I will realize the mistakes I made. Without working on something, you cannot identify the mistakes or you cannot improve. This is what I learned from writing.

Once you start writing, you will more likely know.

What are you doing while writing?

I mean, could you able to write what you mind says?

Could you able to deliver through words?

Could you able to frame the sentences with the proper grammar?

Why I raised this above question?

I struggled, deeply. While I start writing, there are some stories, thoughts, few vocabularies goes onto my mind. But I couldn’t come up. It’s hard to me to frame with the proper grammar.

Still, readers could able to spot pitfalls and even more major mistakes in this post too.

So far, you could see, my several posts, I could not write at all. I started sharing. I started thinking, why can’t I go with the people and doing some research about a personality.

Let’s share their life lessons and their works.

I started having two methodologies in writing.

One is my personal words.

The other one is, I go with some of the topics and personalities and started learning about them and sharing.

Quite honestly, this was my late post. I personally, when I was flow of sharing about some topics /personalities. I don’t wanna interrupt it.

Taking any topics/personalities. What I supposed to do is sharing quotes about the topic or a person and books and lessons.

So whatever, until the flow gets completed. I moreover never interrupt.

Readers could catch what I mean with the flow of my posts. Most probably, there could be chronological order in my posts.

Right now, I was writing in the mid-night. I still struggle to maintain the writing time. Even at this moment. I had beaten the procrastination. Started writing.

Feeling not okay physically but mentally ready.

But the truth is you don’t have to the time to write or you don’t have the time to do any of your favourite activity/work at all. You cannot fix a time to do.

You just start then and there.

When your mind punches you to do that particular task or wide range of tasks.

You just have to start and keep doing it.

This is how I started to write this post. To write this post, I was thinking (not how to write but when am I gonna write).

It’s been a long time to write.

Still I need to manage my writing.

2021 is on the way.

Let’s start thinking not about 2021, but how the 2020 goes.

What is the lesson?

VALUABLE BOOKS: BOOKS TO READ DURING PANDEMIC.

I don’t wanna iterate. We are still in the pandemic. Things seems a bit normal. Sadly, not much. Because people are making bold move by wearing masks and maintaining social distance and learning to be isolated. But, there is a huge possibility, we can make time to read.

These are required books. From Stephen King to Emily St. John Mandel, here are five books to help you lean into coronavirus fears by The Wall Street Journal. From my choice to read the first book will be ‘The Hot Zone’ by Richard Preston.

To read the full article about the books and the description. I would sincerely encourage you all to visit further in the link down below.

Valuable lessons: What is Linguistics? An Introduction to the Study of Language.

This is the one of the best linguistic writings that I am sharing you all.

These lines pays me a bit more clarity about the language and the usage of the grammar. It took several months to jump into the linguistics. Because I wasn’t doing good and enough research. I’m still getting gathering relevant books and materials and starting reading.

If you ask me, which field in linguistics you comes under?

Without any single doubt or thought, I would like to go-ahead and start my research in lexicography because it is the process of writing, editing and compiling dictionaries. I love dictionaries. I knew every reader and writer loves too.

I remember my school days, we keep a small pocket dictionary. My English teachers taught us to search words which we don’t know. I still remember when I was 11th Standard (high school), when we paid our high school fees, our school has given each of us COLLINS COBUILD DICTIONARY. To me, at that moment, it was quite a big in my palms. I was too hungry to learn a word, whether I understand or I use. I wanna learn a word. Let’s see the understandings and usages of the words later. Foremost, let’s start finding a word.

When I was in undergraduate college days. I write a vocabulary on every single day with illustration in our black board. Sometimes, I couldn’t grab a word. Even more to admit in ashamed manner, I couldn’t illustrate for that particular vocabulary. I ask my colleague without hesitation or ego. Because I was too furious/ruthless to learn languages in both English and Tamil too. I decided that there is no hesitation or ashamed when it comes to learning.

I love searching not only precise word which I don’t know. Even more, I go with random words which fascinates me and making me to note it down and at extreme point, my muscle memory becomes stronger to remember those words. To be quite honest and rational, I was started giving extreme priorities to get those words from the dictionaries. I would love to use that words in my writings and my conversations too.

Here the linguistics article, I’m gonna paste the source link down below. I sincerely encourage you all visit further because there are several linguistics topics you could see. I have bright hope. It will impact your knowledge in languages. And there are few recommendable linguistics textbooks to learn about fundamentals in languages and linguistics.

Every human knows at least one language, spoken or signed. Linguistics is the science of language, including the sounds, words, and grammar rules. Words in languages are finite, but sentences are not. It is this creative aspect of human language that sets it apart from animal languages, which are essentially responses to stimuli.

The rules of a language, also called grammar, are learned as one acquires a language. These rules include phonology, the sound system, morphology, the structure of words, syntax, the combination of words into sentences, semantics, the ways in which sounds and meanings are related, and the lexicon, or mental dictionary of words. When you know a language, you know words in that language, i.e. sound units that are related to specific meanings. However, the sounds and meanings of words are arbitrary. For the most part, there is no relationship between the way a word is pronounced (or signed) and its meaning.

Knowing a language encompasses this entire system, but this knowledge (called competence) is different from behavior (called performance.) You may know a language, but you may also choose to not speak it. Although you are not speaking the language, you still have the knowledge of it. However, if you don’t know a language, you cannot speak it at all.

There are two types of grammars: descriptive and prescriptive. Descriptive grammars represent the unconscious knowledge of a language. English speakers, for example, know that “me likes apples” is incorrect and “I like apples” is correct, although the speaker may not be able to explain why. Descriptive grammars do not teach the rules of a language, but rather describe rules that are already known. In contrast, prescriptive grammars dictate what a speaker’s grammar should be and they include teaching grammars, which are written to help teach a foreign language.

There are about 7,000 languages in the world right now (a rough estimate), and linguists have discovered that these languages are more alike than different from each other. There are universal concepts and properties that are shared by all languages, and these principles are contained in the Universal Grammar, which forms the basis of all possible human languages.

VALUABLE LESSONS: LET’S LEARN ABOUT LINGUISTICS.

Linguists work in many fields:

  • Historical linguistics: The study of how language changes over time
  • Sociolinguistics:  The study of language based on social factors, such as region, social class, occupation, and gender
  • Dialectology: The study of language variation based on geographic distribution
  • Pragmatics: The study of how context contributes to meaning
  • Discourse analysis: The study of how language is used
  • Computational linguistics: The application of computational programs to model aspects of language
  • Language acquisition: The study of how people acquire or learn a language
  • Psycholinguistics: The study of how people process language
  • Experimental linguistics: The study of theories of linguistics representation (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics) based on evidence
  • Neurolinguistics: The study of how language affects the structure and function of the brain
  • Lexicography: The compilation and study of dictionaries with context, history, grammar, and pronunciation in mind
  • Forensic linguistics: The study of language and the law
  • Corpus linguistics: The study of language through a collection of naturally occurring texts.

For further learning and moving forward in linguistics, you can learn from one of the university such as Brigham Young University.

VALUABLE POETRY: The True Meaning Of Life by Pat A. Fleming.

It’s been almost two weeks, I could not share the poems. Stringent workloads. I’m not feeling good with this interruption of my flow of writing. I still need to more relentless when it comes to writing. Still I took it as challenge to move ahead. 

ABOUT THE POET:

I was born and raised in the Trenton, NJ area, one of three children of Irish descent. I discovered my Calling to be a Psychiatric Social Worker after doing volunteer work at the local state hospital during high school. After graduating from College, I joined Volunteers In Service To America (now Americorps) and was sent to work in a school for juveniles called Samarkand Manor in North Carolina. After one year of service, I returned home and was hired at the Trenton Psychiatric Hospital as a social worker. I went on to transfer to the Forensic section of the hospital which later became it’s own Forensic Center. I retired in 2016 after 36 years of doing what I loved. I always enjoyed writing from the time I was young, and satisfied that itch when I was a social worker by writing the best Social Histories on my patients. After I retired, I started writing nonstop. I am strictly amateur, no real training, so it’s more of a hobby, but I so treasure reading and posting poems on this site. I am humbled by some of the talent here.

What’s Important In Life

I have been through hard times, I’ve struggled like everyone else to find contentment, peace and an understanding of what life is really about. I believe age has everything to do with finally knowing what life is really about which is who we are and not what we have.

The Years have passed by,

In the blink of an eye,

Moments of sadness,

And joy have flown by.

People I loved,

Have come and have gone,

But the world never stopped,

And we all carried on.

Life wasn’t easy,

And the struggles were there,

Filled with times that it mattered,

Times I just didn’t care.

I stood on my own,

And I still found my way,

Through some nights filled with tears,

And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,

It’s become very clear,

Things I once found important,

Were not why I was here.

And how many things,

That I managed to buy,

Were never what made me,

Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,

That plagued me each day,

In the end of it all,

Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,

To others when needed,

Would be the true measure,

Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,

Of my soul and my heart,

Would ultimately be,

What set me apart.

And what’s really important,

Is my opinion of me,

And whether or not,

I’m the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,

And love I can show,

Before the Lord tells me,

It’s my time to go.

Valuable lessons: What did the Nobel Laureates read when they were young?

At some point, we might too curious to know what academicians are reading. Even more if we could see anyone what they are reading, a writer or a speaker or a journalist or any successful person.

Reading is the ultimate habit here.

I personally not point out the “reading habit” when it comes Nobel Laureates reading habit. Let’s take it as the lesson or might a piece of advice too.

There are enormous awards still across the globe. I don’t even know at all. I would take and proceed with whatever comes to knowledge. Even more I ask people and I do considerably a good research too.

To me as I writer, moreover, I should not fall in one-sided. Rationally speaking, here, I’m not pointing out the Nobel Prize is the superior one. To read about the people’s greatest work is something feels valuable/interesting and making us curious too. This is the categorical reaason, I started reading about the Nobel Prize nominees and Laureates.

Here is the long list which I should not share everything. I will paste the source link down below. And I sincerely encourage you all to visit further.

In their autobiographies, Nobel Laureates reveal their reading habits: how they got started, who spurred them to read on, and where they spent their time losing themselves between the pages of a book. Find out and compare with your own experience, or simply get inspired!

Aphorisms by Alfred Nobel

Literature occupied a central role in the life of Alfred Nobel. He regarded various literary forms of expression as opportunities to achieve a greater understanding of our own thoughts, lives and relationships with other people and our surroundings. Alfred Nobel had an extensive library, which included important European literary works. Inspired by Shelley and Byron, he wrote poems in English as a young man. Toward the end of his life, he wrote the tragedy Nemesis. His best literary form of expression was probably the aphorism, where he often expressed himself drastically.

“A heart can no more be forced to love than a stomach can be forced to digest food by persuasion.”

“Second to agriculture, humbug is the biggest industry of our age.”

“Contentment is the only real wealth.”

“We build upon the sand, and the older we become, the more unstable this foundation becomes.”

“The truthful man is usually a liar.”

“Justice is to be found only in the imagination.”

“It is not sufficient to be worthy of respect in order to be respected.”

“Worry is the stomach’s worst poison.”

“The best excuse for the fallen ones is that Madame Justice herself is one of them.”

“Self-respect without the respect of others is like a jewel which will not stand the daylight.”

“Hope is nature’s veil for hiding truth’s nakedness.”

“Lying is the greatest of all sins.”

“Home is where I work and I work everywhere.”
