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.

Rabindranath Tagore’s writing is deeply rooted in both Indian and Western learning traditions. Apart from fiction in the form of poetry, songs, stories, and dramas, it also includes portrayals of common people’s lives, literary criticism, philosophy, and social issues. Rabindranath Tagore originally wrote in Bengali, but later reached a broad audience in the West after recasting his poetry in English. In contrast to the frenzied life in the West, his poetry was felt to convey the peace of the soul in harmony with nature.

Biographical

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj, which was a new religious sect in nineteenth-century Bengal and which attempted a revival of the ultimate monistic basis of Hinduism as laid down in the Upanishads. He was educated at home; and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. In his mature years, in addition to his many-sided literary activities, he managed the family estates, a project which brought him into close touch with common humanity and increased his interest in social reforms. He also started an experimental school at Shantiniketan where he tried his Upanishadic ideals of education. From time to time he participated in the Indian nationalist movement, though in his own non-sentimental and visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honour as a protest against British policies in India.

Tagore had early success as a writer in his native Bengal. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West. In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India’s spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.

Although Tagore wrote successfully in all literary genres, he was first of all a poet. Among his fifty and odd volumes of poetry are Manasi (1890) [The Ideal One], Sonar Tari (1894) [The Golden Boat], Gitanjali (1910) [Song Offerings], Gitimalya (1914) [Wreath of Songs], and Balaka (1916) [The Flight of Cranes]. The English renderings of his poetry, which include The Gardener (1913), Fruit-Gathering (1916), and The Fugitive (1921), do not generally correspond to particular volumes in the original Bengali; and in spite of its title, Gitanjali: Song Offerings (1912), the most acclaimed of them, contains poems from other works besides its namesake. Tagore’s major plays are Raja (1910) [The King of the Dark Chamber], Dakghar (1912) [The Post Office], Achalayatan (1912) [The Immovable], Muktadhara (1922) [The Waterfall], and Raktakaravi (1926) [Red Oleanders]. He is the author of several volumes of short stories and a number of novels, among them Gora (1910), Ghare-Baire (1916) [The Home and the World], and Yogayog (1929) [Crosscurrents]. Besides these, he wrote musical dramas, dance dramas, essays of all types, travel diaries, and two autobiographies, one in his middle years and the other shortly before his death in 1941. Tagore also left numerous drawings and paintings, and songs for which he wrote the music himself.

MY STORY: WHAT I LEARNED FROM BOOKS?

I haven’t read any books until college. It’s a bad statement but, I was hanging around with my high school books.

8428

I started reading the first book in my college library. The language was Tamil. சாதனைகள் சாத்தியமே ( Achievements are achievable). I hope, I’m translating it right! Sorry.

Thangavelu Marimuthu is the author.

It contains only 128 pages. I really struggled to finish it off. At the same time, I would love to finish it because I felt really motivated the way the author has been conveyed.

I never read books for entertainment or passing times (if I feel boring). I will read the book because I love it, I’d love to learn from it. Finally, I’m gonna think with all the possibilities then I’ll apply. Every time, I used to say particularly special about books. Vocabulary. The unknown words make me search the meaning and also to use it in the conversation.

So far, my thinking ability has been widened. I’m feeling like the same books I read, I need to read it again. Still, I could go into deeper.

Every month, I read the minimum 2 and maximum 3.

Then every month, I visit the mall and old bookshop I will buy 2 more books.

My state of mind was happy, it knows what to learn?

This was my asset.

Readers are leaders,

Readers are writers.

 

With respect.

MY STORY: WHAT LIFE HAD TAUGHT ME, SO FAR?

It’s not my sentimental or emotional content. But,

Only two assets had taught me in my life.

It was my open statement.

Tangible was a book and Intangible was my lessons learned in my life.

I will talk tomorrow about books.

I could not believe; how adamant and impatient I was, I mean 10 years ago.

Through patience and perseverance, I was doing a bit good, those two essential qualities. Life started teaching me.

In fact, at this moment I should not write this content. I haven’t reached any milestones.

For the past seven years, I started hanging around with my goals. I was totally amateur. I don’t know, what’s wrong with me? But, I started writing it and working towards my vision, still playing with my sport, still looking for the best effort every day, sorry again same OLD CONTENT (statement), STILL STRUGGLING, BUT STILL LOOKING FORWARD. Even though, I started hating life. At the same time, I was still dreaming to succeed. That kind of, something I don’t know what to say? Can I say it was my obsession? Sounds wired!

But, I think life is not hating me, rather the lesson was teaching me so far.

I wasn’t a simple one-page plan, you can write it and you can win easily as per the plan.

My last line. It’s far more beyond. We could not imagine.

Are you learning and growing what life has been teaching you?

 

With respect.

 

SIX VALUABLE STORIES FROM 1921 NOBEL PRICE THEORETICAL PHYSICIST ALBERT EINSTEIN:

It’s been very long to post such a valuable story. This is the second valuable story after Abraham Lincoln because I was keenly looking forward to conveying these kinds of stories.

It’s absolutely interesting and peculiar when I was reading. Just morning I got this story from my professor Rajeev Ramanath through What’s app. My professor is a practising Chartered Accountant over the past 10 years in Kerala, a state of India. Also taking classes for Economics and Cost Accounting.

alberteinstein1-2xE = mc2 is a well-known equation across the globe. But still certain stories behind the scenes.

Six enthralling stories:

  1. One day during a speaking tour, Albert Einstein’s driver, who often sat at the back of the hall during his lectures, remarked that he could probably give the lecture himself, having heard it so many times. Sure enough, at the next stop on the tour, Einstein and the driver switched places, with Einstein sitting at the back in his driver’s uniform. Having delivered a flawless lecture, the driver was asked a difficult question by a member of the audience. “Well, the answer to that question is quite simple,” he casually replied. “I bet my driver, sitting up at the back there, could answer it!”
  2. Albert Einstein’s wife often suggested that he dress more professionally when he headed off to work. “Why should I?” he would invariably argue. “Everyone knows me there.” When the time came for Einstein to attend his first major conference, she begged him to dress up a bit. “Why should I?” said Einstein. “No one knows me there!”
  3. Albert Einstein was often asked to explain the general theory of relativity. “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour,” he once declared. “Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity!”
  4. When Albert Einstein was working at Princeton University, one day he was going back home he forgot his home address. The driver of the cab did not recognize him. Einstein asked the driver if he knows Einstein’s home. The driver said “Who does not know Einstein’s address? Everyone in Princeton knows. Do you want to meet him?. Einstein replied “I am Einstein. I forgot my home address; can you take me there? “The driver reached him to his home and did not even collect his fare from him.
  5. Einstein was once travelling from Princeton on a train when the conductor came down the aisle, punching the tickets of every passenger. When he came to Einstein, Einstein reached in his vest pocket. He couldn’t find his ticket, so he reached in his trouser pockets. It wasn’t there, so he looked in his briefcase but couldn’t find it. Then he looked in the seat beside him. He still couldn’t find it. The conductor said, ‘Dr. Einstein, I know who you are. We all know who you are. I’m sure you bought a ticket. Don’t worry about it.’ Einstein nodded appreciatively. The conductor continued down the aisle punching tickets. As he was ready to move to the next car, he turned around and saw the great physicist down on his hands and knees looking under his seat for his ticket.The conductor rushed back and said, ‘Dr. Einstein, Dr Einstein, don’t worry, I know who you are. No problem. You don’t need a ticket. I’m sure you bought one.’ Einstein looked at him and said, ‘Young man, I too, know who I am. What I don’t know is where I’m going.’
  6. When Einstein met Charlie Chaplin:  Einstein said,

*”What I admire most about your art, is its universality. You do not say a word, and           yet … the world understands you.”*

“It’s true,” replied Charlie Chaplin,

*”But your fame is even greater: The world admires you when nobody understands you.”. *

My Story: Rafael Nadal is my Well-wisher.

62081717_10219764776807378_5792734576660971520_n

Bit delay to deliver this one, but I was writing a review for the book. Sin, Sex and Self-control.

Since 2008 I started watching Tennis. Rafael Nadal is my inspiration, motivation, and everything. That makes me a Tennis Player. I was started playing Tennis in college and still playing. On 2008 Wimbledon, Nadal won over Federer, that was one of the most epic matches in the Tennis history. Again, Nadal conquered in Paris for the 12th time. French Open. Most single Grand slam won by the single player in the Tennis history. Although, Nadal suffered mostly hamstring injuries and more. But I love him. Apart from his injury, he is still ready to compete with all the players. Precisely, he is getting ready to break the Roger Federer’s record, Roger holds most overall Grand slam won by the single player carrying 20 slams. Some bad loss affecting him.

Just a few years back he said, “Losing is not a problem for me.” Despite, he is winning the Grand slams. So far 11 years, I was watching Nadal, the fighting spirit that he has. His uncle Toni Nadal and his Ex-coach polished him. I was heartbroken three times, Nadal retired from Grand Slam match due to injury, 2010 Australian Open quarterfinal against Andy Murray, 2018 Australian Open quarterfinal against Marin Cilic and 2018 US Open against Juan Martin Del Potro.

Nadal bounced back from all the injuries and setbacks.

62134106_10219764888850179_1250772262747897856_n

That resilience is the key to success.

Bravo Rafa.

“The King of Clay.”

A VALUABLE STORY FROM 16th PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’S ABRAHAM LINCOLN:

One fine day, the rain was pouring, Mr. President was getting ready with the black broadcloth coat  to address the meeting. On the way to the White House,

Abruptly,

Mr. President saw the kit rabbit was stumbling in the downpour of the rain, none of them are expected that Mr. President was drenching in the rain.

It’s was, unbelievable.

What Mr. President had seen, no one had seen,

Mr. President was trying to save the kit rabbit. In and around President’s closest advisors are totally appalling.

Eventually, Mr. President has safeguarded the kitty.

Everybody was flabbergasted.

More awfully, the next moment Mr. President was March on to address it, with drenched clothes.

The crowd seems, atrocious.

In the End, addressed, with bit delay.

The Moral of the story, I had learned is,

The tendency to help even though it was a rabbit, Honest Abe is the (sobriquet for Abraham Lincoln) thinks that it was also a living creature. Also, Abe thought to address the meeting in the drenched dress. For Abe dress not at all matter, to address the meeting matters most.

Dignity or prestigious is absolutely nothing.

With Respect.
