Re: I'm Brainless

Words, whether big or small were made to be used. There's absolutely no doubt to that. Like you said, they've their circle, where it should be used.

Frankly, Merle's point was for the ordinary people. It didn't depict the highly-qualified educated men, nor women. I responded to it in the same like demeanor, as was pointed out, by Miss Edmund.

It is only fair that "big words" be targeted to a specific audience, that have no problem in understanding them. Other than that, the average men and women don't fully comprehend just how to use a dictionary, to quickly grasp the meaning of "big words they're confronted with." Even if the dictionary comes in alphabetical order, to avoid excessive looking through it to find a word. It is very important for a writer of, let's say, fiction/non-fiction, or mystery, for that matter of fact, to first know the audiences he's writing for. Otherwise, his work will not be great, no matter how much work he put into it.

I always appreciate "big words" crawling up and down my ally! It gives me the flexability needed to read the dictiomary. I have no bad feelings about that! To me, its getting to know something that I didn't know before. And, that's a plus thing on my side.

It was an excellent point Merle made. She intended to soften up the deliberate use of "big words", when they aren't necessary, for the sake of the ordinary readers, principally on this forum.

I couldn't appreciate Merle's point more!

Mr. Samuel knew where to start, and where to end his choices of words. He's one heck of an intellegent man!

Re: I'm Brainless

Some people use their so called education to use words that the ordinary reader needs to look into a dictionary to find the meaning. Some of us are fortunate enough to know the meaning of words, while others have to think about the word. This forum is for everyone to read. Brain or Brainless. I may be considered Brainless.
