Silver-Tongued – Friday’s Word of the Day

2 min read

This is on writing, the importance of words. They are not to be regurgitated in some sort of verbal vomit to illustrate a writer’s superiority in use of vocabulary or in ability to mimic and follow trends. Words can be used to express honest thoughts and emotions. Which brings us to an unacknowledged point by speakers whose sole mission is either to fill silence or shout down the more timid. Those wishing to express themselves can be civil and polite. Admittedly, this means speakers, writers and tweeters must know some commonly accepted civil conventions. A lot of these “rules” are learned though Reading books! There are presently a few public examples of speakers who not only do not read; they only hear what they want to hear. Civilization has invented audiobooks but even that seems to challenge those who already know it all.

Sorry, it is my rant. As usual, I find things much better expressed by Kat Myrman who presents several great points below.
