Hay en la intimidad un límite sagrado…

ANNA AJMÁTOVA

Hay en la intimidad un límite sagrado
Que trasponer no puede aun la pasión más loca
Siquiera si el amor el corazón desgarra
Y en medio del silencio se funden nuestras bocas.

La amistad nada puede, nada pueden los años
De vuelos elevados, de llameante dicha,
Cuando es el alma libre y no la vence
La dulce languidez del goce y la lascivia.

Pretenden alcanzarlo mentes enajenadas,
Y a quienes lo trasponen los colma la tristeza.
¿Comprendes tú ahora por qué mi corazón
No late a ritmo debajo de tu diestra?

(Versión de María Teresa León)

iNews. Opinion: 

From Geronimo the alpaca’s ‘euthanasia’ to ‘new hospitals’, politicians are masters of euphemism.

The avoidance of rudeness has always been implicit in euphemism – but sometimes it is used for darker ends.

By Susie Dent / i columnist
September 3, 2021
“Euphemisms”, the actor and writer Quentin Crisp decided, are “unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne”. In a week in which Geronimo the alpaca was “euthanised” and anti-vaxxers decreed that dying “after a short illness” really means “from vaccine-related consequences”, there’s been lot of smelly stuff sloshing about.

Neither of those particular side-steps is new. “Euthanasia” is defined in the dictionary as “a gentle and easy death”, which arguably isn’t quite what Geronimo received. “After a short illness”, meanwhile, declared by some on Twitter to be a swerve away from “death by clotshot”, has been around since the 1890s, and has become an obituary staple when the exact cause of death is private or unknown. It joins other stock phrases such as “didn’t suffer fools gladly” (for which read “cantankerous”) and “a tireless raconteur” (“never stopped talking”). Thankfully, the days when “confirmed bachelor” and “he never married” were fig leaves for “gay” are long gone.

Of course, euphemism is more or less mandatory in some situations. We would no more declare we’re “going for a piss” during an interview than we would speak of being “off our faces” when visiting the in-laws. This avoidance of rudeness has always been implicit in euphemism. But this also opens the gates to comedy, which revels in the very subjects we tiptoe around – and in dysphemism, deliberate rudeness.

Sol Stein´s Top 13 Writing Tips

Sol Stein’s Top 13 Writing Tips
Never heard of him? Neither had I, but his tips are amazing.
Bobby Powers

Jun 22, 2020·
Whenever people share their favorite writing advice books, the same several books come up time and again: Stephen King’s On Writing, Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, and Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style.
But recently, a friend recommended a writing craft book that was foreign to me: Stein on Writing by Stein I decided to check it out and found a goldmine of knowledge for authors of fiction and nonfiction alike.

Here are the top 13 writing tips from writer and editor Sol Stein:
1. Learn from both fiction and nonfiction
“The best of good writing will entice us into subjects and knowledge we would have declared were of no interest to us until we were seduced by the language they were dressed in.” -Sol Stein
Stein says that fiction and nonfiction writers have a lot to learn from each other. Writers of fiction are masters of evoking emotion, whereas writers of nonfiction are adept at conveying information.
The best authors are able to do both: they wrap facts in compelling stories. Read fiction to learn how to tell better stories. Read nonfiction to learn how to accurately relay details.
Don’t limit yourself to your tiny little slice of the writing world (poetry, self-help, fantasy, mystery, etc.). You can learn from any writer in any field.

Entrevista a Ricardo Moreno

Ricardo MorenoRICARDO MORENO CASTILLO Filósofo, matemático y profesor

“La educación ha fracasado por empeñarse en negar sus límites”
“Un buen profesor de hoy se parece mucho a uno de hace 300 años”
M. B.
Vigo | 12·09·21 

“Profesor durante más de tres décadas, Ricardo Moreno Castillo es licenciado en Matemáticas, doctor en Filosofía y autor de una veintena de libros, entre los que se cuentan: Sobre la buena y la mala educación, Panfleto antipedagógico o Los griegos y nosotros. De cómo el desprecio por la Antigüedad destruye la educación. El próximo 25 de septiembre desembarcará en el V Foro de Educación de FARO para desarrollar la ponencia ‘Los límites de la educación’, aunque advierte: “Normalmente, me mandan callar, me dicen: ‘este señor anticuado que no se ha enterado de las novedades…”.

A sus 71 años, se queja de lo políticamente correcto por “hipócrita”, critica a los que él mismo bautiza como neopedagogos – “parecen curas frustrados”– e insiste en la importancia de estudiar a los clásicos. Preguntado por la educación en España, responde: “Es un absoluto fracaso”, pero ¿por qué?”

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking 

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Language

What Is Language? The 5 Basic Elements of Language Defined
RODRIC ANTHONY JOHNSON

Owlcation.com, 3 August 2021

extract

‘Definition of Language

Language can be defined as a form of communication that allows intercourse between multiple people, that is arbitrary (in words individually), generative (in word placement), and constantly evolving.

Many may dispute the meaning of language because some may equate language to communication in general. Where communication can be any action, language must have particular limits placed within its meaning to protect what may constitute a proper language—that is to distinguish between noises or grunts and communicative utterances in languages.

The Lexicon of a language or the words used to form a language provides the opportunity for multiple combinations of words virtually to never say the same group of words the same way.’
