The Write Work
Select words which precisely fit their contexts in meaning, attitude, and suggestiveness.
Selection of the right word for each job is not easy. Knowledge of meanings is fundamental in defining. The choice usually is not a simple one between tow words, one of which is wrong and one of which is right. Words are more or less expressive, more or less precise, more or less instinct with the power to make the reader see, hear, feel, or understand. Words should be chosen for many qualifications---their sound, their associations, their currency, their meaning, and many others. But meaning is of first importance.
The "meaning of meaning"
Strictly speaking, no word has a meaning as a physical object can have length. The bars of metal in the Bureau of Standards, for instance, which determine our inches and feet, keep the same length at a given temperature. They always have the same length, whoever measures them, so long as the measuring is accurately done, but now words are kept at a controlled temperature in the Bureau of Standards. Words exist only in people's minds, and all minds are different. No word has a "meaning" which it inevitably calls up in everbody's mind.
Theoretically, then, Humpty Dumpty is entirely justified in telling Alice, "When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean---neither more nor less." There is no authority to keep him from using the word glory, as he does, to mean there's a nice knock-down argument for you. Practically, however, Humpty is not communicating very accurately or economically. Words do not have any mystical connection with a particular "meaning," but communication is possible only because at any time in history by common agreement people associate certain words with certain thoughts. We can communicate because we agree, closely enough for practical purposes, to let certain words symbolize certain ideas.
The writer, then, must attempt first of all to choose the word which will most nearly convey to the reader what he is thinking. the selection is not always easy. Many ideas are so complex or so subtle that only careful thinking will discover words to convey them exactly. Some words are so vague or subject to such varied interpretations that their usefulness is limited. But care helps, and this blog and words usage are always available as guides to basic relationship between words, actions, thoughts.
Word in their contexts
Mechanical reliance on dictionary definitions, however is not enough. Dictionaries list various meanings for words, and no word conveys meaning except in its context. Words affect, and are affected by, the words with which they are used. Consider, for example, the following sentences;
My love is like a red, red rose.
The love of money is the root of all evil.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Friendship is Love without wings.
The score was forty-love.
Lord is love.
The word love appears in each sentence, but its meaning is different in each. The context, the company the word keeps in its sentence, indicates to the reader its meaning.
The writer attempting to select the exact word for his purposes must choose with the remainder of his sentence in mind. Even synonyms cannot be interchanged at random. For example, dictionaries list exonerate as a synonym for the verb clear. In a sentence like In the trial the ex-convict was cleared, the substitution would not serve in a sentence like Mary cleared the dishes from the table. Words must be chosen to convey exact meanings in their contexts.
Concrete and abstract
Nobody can photograph unhappiness. One can photograph a woman in tears, a grim-faced undernourished child, or a workman contemplating a notice of dismissal. Through the pictures one may communicate unhappiness.
Unhappiness can be called abstract; the woman who can be photographed can be called concrete. Thus, the word unhappiness can be called more abstract than the word woman. Roughly one can say that abstract words refer to generalities or to ideas and that concrete words refer to generalities or to ideas and that concrete words refer to things or objects, but the statement requires two qualifications.
First, the distinction between abstract and concrete is relative, like the distinction between general and specific. Compare the following:
There was something on the table.
There was food on the table.
There was a bowl of fruit on the table.
Food is more concrete than something, bowl of fruit more concrete than food. The ideas become more specific; the words become more concrete and increase in exactness and suggestiveness as they do so.
Second, just as the general develops out of the specific abstract expressions grow from more concrete ones. Color stands for a thought which could be expressed only with considerable indirection if we had only more concrete terms like red, yellow, blue, green.
Both concrete and abstract terms, therefore, are necessary in any writing, but often specific words clarify an excessively abstract style. Consider the following sentence proposed by George Orwell to illustrate how some writers might translate a passage of the Bible:
Objective consideration of contemporary phenomena compels the conclusion that success or failure in competitive activities exhibits no tendency to be commensurate with innate capacity, but that considerable element of the unpredictable must invariably be taken into account.
The sentence exaggerates, but it suggests how abstractions piled upon abstractions can obscure ideas. Compare the passage from Ecclesiastes which Orwell has "translated."
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Instead of one general statement, the original uses five specific examples; instead of abstractions like consideration, phenomena, conclusion, success, and failure, the original uses more concrete words like race, battle, bread, and riches. Almost always, clear and accurate writing uses concrete words whenever possible.
In bright to Port that portal of thought be neat the tunnel in the tremble of scotch,
block ice with a chisel lot to grasp that barrel of pickle,
in the briny wash of face to taught is the blanket News to Paper to Spot,
on the idea of the formal treat is trick form in varied national storm,
rain that is no wind shield rather the blistering of the castle of the mind in that torn.
Ripping out the back of the full in thus the bladder is the sink on the corn,
a stomach matter in the cramping of flown to the deathly shallows of slain,
shall the bright touch a clock on the acre of range in trade for the barbed of the fence on a lay,
does the Cow of the gate trample the church or is the respective bull find,
gather prospective is inspection of heard to wrangle the doctor of ole Mother Earth.
slight in difference yet Vast are the scores ask in the wrist it's an Ankle or hand,
that slap on the Rump of the movement of sheep is a Flock or the pound buffalo sounds?
There on the Plains of the Most Hello of A Mountain the shark in the see is Mankind on the bleep,
talkers that scramble the channel of mind with 'This' 'That' even on 'Timed' for return,
quick in the sand is the swamp of apt Land shall the torn be of grates And not of the sand,
blocks of the muddy think is an arm that shoulders the breakage on stay on the Farm.
Alas! the quote is in the Big Sky formal with 5th dimensional Vote,
quest to the long ago on the post find it to Will on James Blunt is a toast,
cheers to the reason Wisdom from tot reading a Sixth pen & running From shot,
James Blunt is a curtain that blinks to his crotch With nothing on sum kind of lots,
but even in clamber the length of a trait Muster is I calling out that found Shade,
in that birth to the sail of words on His site Aye find the teaser it's been in & about.
Old fellow, how would you render that field of wheat?---JOSEPH CONRAD
Time is very interesting. Our lives are made of time. Nobody knows what time is. You go in one direction and you gain time. You go in the other direction and you lose time. Airplanes now fly so fast that time stands still. A Plane can fly as fast as the earth revolves past the sun. A baby born in a plane flying in the right direction could theoretically live its whole life of many years without living through one day. It would have a long birthday. Its whole life would be its birthday. Suppose the plane should fly faster. The baby would be minus an old man. There is one place in the United States, and there time is different in every direction. The time belt follows the Snake River. The river makes an ox-bow bend. From within the ox-bow you shoot a long-range rifle north, east, south, or west. The bullet will land almost an hour before it was fired. The ox-bow is completely surrounded by another time belt. Time is all anyone has in the world. It is fluid. Nobody has ever found a good way of measuring it.
