Language Revived
« on: December 14, 2010, 03:51:27 PM »
 As of late, the Tubercle has been a student of the historical record, as he has been engaged the majority of his life, and as a result will attempt to resurrect the prose and poetry of the human language so long lost, especially due to the curt and short modifications deemed necessary by the populace of the electronic realm, and will communicate in a more stately manner better befitting the level of gentleness such as us, and will shun the vulgar attempt of lesser beings.

 This will require, in the modern teaching, a breach of run on sentences; the patience of my fellow brewers will be required as this task is taken on, but is necessary lest we discard our inheritance and condemn that which has brought us to our present state of indulgence.

But what do you think of this?

The human language...?  Would that be the one language - prior to Nimrod and his tower?

So a turn to a more asiatic style versus a senecan style? Or perhaps better to say asiatic as opposed to attic style?
I love it...just promise you won't stop referring to yourself using third person narrative...

I agree with the Tubercle that language is severely under attack. In fact, on other forums I have been accused of being the......



But someone has to do it. As much as we all have our pet issues where we feel our personal liberties have been curtailed, and often they have, the bottom line is that we can spend a peaceful afternoon brewing beer without getting shot at because we live in a society based in law, and law would not be possible without language. "Hey you, gimme the thing, you know".... No, I don't know. Words matter. What you said and what you meant is not always the same, and it is important to care.

Therefore, unto you, my dear Tubercle, I express my appreciation and admiration for having the awareness and concern that language does matter. Together we shall stand, side by side and deliver blow upon blow to the "free gifts" the "irregardless" the "freind" and the generally morsose. Onward, forward........

  Just a small portion of Nimrod's language, a version of which I have had the privilege of learning and which has mutated somewhat from the original that was confounded.

But, you still like turtles, right?

 Hell yea...er...Of course, my good man.


Alright. No more. Trying to talk like the founding fathers makes my head hurt. That is what happens when you spend the afternoon reading the Federalist Papers.

 I does sound cool though. I was wanting to practice so I could freak my boss lady out :D

That's great. ;D

Don't give it up completely. Your use of the semicolon was exquisite.
