DEFINITIONS PART 2-COMMUNICATION SKILLS-THE POWER OF WORDS AND THEIR MEANING

DEFINITIONS              PART 2-COMMUNICATION SKILLS-THE POWER OF WORDS AND THEIR MEANING

WORDS AND THEIR MEANING HAVE STRONG POWER.  THERE IS POWER IN KNOWING WHEN AND HOW TO USE THE DEFINITIONS OF WORDS.  WORDS WITHIN THEIR PROPER CONTEXT OPEN A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF MEANING WHEN USED APPROPRIATELY.  I COMPARE WORDS TO HAVING A LARGE AMOUNT OF TOOLS;  SOME OF THESE TOOLS WE USE OFTEN AND SOME WE DON’T.   IT DOES SEEM THOSE WORDS WITH APPROPRIATE MEANING GIVEN IN PERFECT RYTHEM AND CONTEXT WITHIN A SENTENCE OPEN DOORS TO NEW MEANING FOR THE LISTENER.  WHAT WORDS WE USE DON’T HAVE TO BE THE WORDS WITH THE BIG PRONUNCIATIONS AND REDUNDANT SPELLINGS TO FLATTER US AND OTHERS.  THESE WON’T BE THE WORDS THAT GET YOUR POINT ACROSS ANY CLEARER OR THE OVERALL MEANING OF WHAT YOU WISH TO CONVEY.  

THE POWER OF WORDS AND USING THEM IN PROPER CONTEXT HAPPEN WHEN WE CAN DEFINE THEM AND KNOW HOW THEY ACTIVELY AND CORRECTLY FIT WITHIN A WRITTEN SENTENCE OR A VERBAL SENTENCE.   WE MUST IN TODAY’S WORLD OPEN OUR MINDS TO THE MORE COMPLEX WORDS.  AS EDUCATION LEVELS CONTINUE ON AN UPTICK, WHAT ONCE WERE FOREIGN WORDS TO SOME OF US, ARE WORDS WE USE IN EVERY DAY LIFE.  IF WE ARE AN AUTHOR OR POET, BY KNOWING THE MEANING OF EVERY WORD POSSIBLE ALLOWS US MORE ABLE AND DESCRIPTIVE WHEN WE WRITE.  THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE FEELING SCRATCHING OUR HEADS KNOWING WHAT WE WISH TO SAY, BUT FIND WE DON’T HAVE THE WORDS TO SAY THE MESSAGE WE WISH TO DELIVER.

WORDS AND THEIR DEFINITIONS ALLOW US TO UTILIZE EXCEPTIONAL SKILLS WHEN WRITING, BUT ALSO WHEN WE SPEAK.  IF WE ARE PUBLIC SPEAKERS WISHING TO SAY A SPECIFIC MESSAGE, WE CANNOT DO THIS AS WELL IF WE AREN’T FAMILIAR WITH MOST WORDS AND THEIR DEFINITIONS.  WE ALSO NEED TO KNOW WHAT CATEGORY A WORD FALLS IN SUCH AS A NOUN, A PLURAL OR SINGULAR MEANING, A VERB, PLURAL AND SINGULAR USAGE, AND ADJECTIVES AND THEIR USAGE PLURAL AND SINGULAR, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE PARTICULAR WORD USED SLIGHTLY CHANGES IN SPELLING AND MEANING.  WORDS AND THEIR DEFINITION ARE A MUST IN TODAY’S WORLD WHETHER YOU’RE A TEACHER, A POET, AN AUTHOR, A READER, AN ACADEMIC, OR ATTORNEY IN MEDICINE AND LAW, FAMILIARITY WITH SOME LATIN AND HOW TO USE THE DEFINITION OF A LATIN WORD TO USE THESE WORDS IN PROPER CONTEXT.  

DEFINITIONS ARE KEY IN KNOWING HOW TO USE WORDS.  IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE FAMILIAR WITH WORDS, BUT WITHOUT THEIR SPECIFIC DEFINITIONS, WE AREN’T ABLE TO USE THESE WORDS. WE  MUST KNOW EACH WORDS DEFINITION AND IN CORRECT CONTEXT AND MEANING.  KNOWING DEFINITIONS FOR AS MANY WORDS AS POSSIBLE ALLOW US TO BE MORE DESCRIPTIVE, ADDING MORE COLOR TO OUR BACKGROUND STORY AND MORE CONTEXT TO A STORY MAKING WHAT WE WRITE MORE INTERESTING.  WORDS AND THEIR DEFINITIONS ARE ONLY AS EFFECTIVE AS THE WRITER, SPEAKER, TEACHER OR ACADEMIC USING THESE MEA IN APPROPRIATE CONTEXT.  HAVING AS MANY WORDS AND THEIR MEANINGS AND DEFINITIONS AVAILABLE TO US, ARE LIKE A CONSTRUCTION WORKER HAVING THE PROPER TOOLS NECESSARY TO DO THEIR JOB MOST EFFECTIVELY. 

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE DEFINITIONS OR KNOWING THE WORDS THAT MATCH THEM OR CONTEXT IN WHICH THEY ARE USED.  THIS WILL BENEFIT US IN SO MANY AVENUES IN LIFE, ESPECIALLY WITH COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY REGARDLESS OF THE CONTEXT WE USE THESE WORDS.  WE CAN BE A WRITER, OR READER TRYING TO COMPREHEND A WRITER’S WORKS AND CAN’T DO THIS AS WELL AS WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO IF WE ARE HANDICAPPED WITH A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF WORDS AND THEIR DEFINITION.  IF YOU ARE A STUDENT  READING THIS TODAY, I HOPE YOU WILL SEE WHY YOU NEED TO INVEST IN THE TIME INCREASING VOCABULARY OR EVEN PAYING ATTENTION IN AN ENGLISH CLASS IF YOU ARE YOUNGER.  PERHAPS YOU WILL HAVE A NEW APPRECIATION WHEN YOU READ SOMETHING WRITTEN ABOVE YOUR COMPREHENSION LEVEL.  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING!
