Deconstructing Semantics

Submitted by ub on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 08:10

Whenever semantics comes up, an initial response could be what do you mean by that, or are you trying to be mean? News or Views?

Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, significant is the study of meaning, reference, or truth. The term can be used to refer to philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.

Semantics can mean quite different things in different contexts; fields concerned with semantics are as diverse as psychology, law, lexicography, and logic. Pragmatics is an equally wide-ranging term, with applications in politics.

❤️ LOVE 💗

Before we can love anyone else, we must first learn to love ourselves and try to be the best human being we can possibly be.

It happens to be the most powerful emotion. Love also occurs when you get that feeling from someone else. The butterflies in your stomach, knowing that someone else cares for you almost as much as you do.

One of the most common issues in relationships is the communication barrier. Everyone experiences love differently, and it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to showing that you care.

Brits and Americans are divided by attitudes toward the House of Windsor. Why are there different reactions to Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview? What is the attraction to learn about The Royals who're among the most dysfunctional families on earth?

Bonnie and Clyde were an unstoppable team. The ragtag bank robber duo were inspiring legends everywhere they went.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Champion Barrow were lovers who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. They were known for their bank robberies, although they also robbed small stores and rural businesses.

This image of their romantic embrace makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for their passion.

COVID may turn out to be the ultimate stress test for human beings. A literary guide by famed Latin-American writer and Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez first published in 1985 El Amor en Los Tiempos del Cólera in Spanish or Love in Times of Cholera is one classic we recommend for all to read. There is also a magnificent film to watch with an absolutely fabulous soundtrack to give a listen to. But manor no mistake about it, the global pandemic must be eradicated.

What makes Love, Liberty, and Labor extremely important to all of us? These three make all the difference in the world for everyone.

As we look forward, and looking back, comparing to life in 1921, the similarities are amazing. A century ago, earth was pounded by a global pandemic; people around the world were starving, and there was a new #USA president being sworn in.
