The Word

When we write we define. If we use the wrong words, the speech cannot be understood.

A word, it is :
* Sounds or letters.
* A story or a secret.
* A meaning defining the word.

Indeed, words have existed since prehistory. At first, only numbers existed, to trade. It is thought that idleness has made it possible to create words.

So the words were only sounds at the beginning. The history of each word thus surely possesses a secret. The meaning of the word stops when the handwriting has forgotten it.

A word, it may be :
* A combination of words.
* An objective, an entity, an action, a person, an object.

A new meaning uses an old word’s meaning, another language, or a words’ combination. The Travelers allowed these new creations. Localization has created languages and cultures, a set of words and community‘s habits.

Learning about word’s history1 adds meaning to his text. Then we clarify his text’s meaning, with the new words found.

My Notes

Rework a text and find synonyms, or add a story on words...

You can use a word processor with a synonym search. You can search for meaning on an electronic or paper dictionary.
