I like Words - I respect words - I love words

I like discovering new words & meanings & yet I don’t munge away their personality & history & meanings just to suit an argument or the capriciousness of the moment. I support trans-personal meanings & individual associations & yet am blessed with a life-long interest in etymology, dictionaries usage & slang & I have visited other countries & other languages & appreciate the near infinite variety of peoples who bear the sense of language (speech, thought, hearing & ego).  As far as abstraction goes, mathematics is king of that domain. Ontology digs deeper into those words which have little math in them although there are cosmologists who think the world is all math. I appreciate GW’s dialect of Chinese ming & how he has turned it into a mathematical way of combining words to get a new word using it to describe the Chinese classic yiking . With ming we have the sound of a word, it’s riming characteristics, it’s transliteration (now pinyin) for modern typing & a picture of ancient meanings of the word – a lost art to the Occident since very few people know the origin of the characters in the English alphabet; nor can follow the spelling of a word & make sense of the letters chosen having any meaning. 
I expect when reading & listening to others’ words that they are not just a loosely random gathering called forth to purpose having only personal meaning. Sentences should leave the reader & listener with something other than baffling huh?  Disrespectful arguments on this thought will be curated.
