Words. Words. Words! I

In this series we're gonna look at a list of "loanwords" and/or borrowings.These words are derived from others languages. Be sure not to confuse them with "cognates" and "calques" and "false friends". What are those? I'm glad you ask.

As I'm paging through my notes from my varsity days- calques are word-for-word translations borrowed from another language. For instance, 'it goes without saying' calques the French ça va sans dire.

I'm a piani...a piano player.

Music 

No matter how you pronounce it, it can move and groove ya. So I was listening to some music the other day, and it inspired me to be creative all of a sudden. After doodling for hours, and turning my forks into hooks; it just hit me: What if I analyzed the s#%7 outta any maestro I know? There are just so many of 'em. I might well add to this later.  Musicologists: Step aside. Students: Throw away your textbooks.  A new era has begun.

India in Poetry

Nila in flood time and The deserted temple are poems written by Vijay Nambisan. Both poems are rather graphic in their description of India and they offer the audience an opportunity to visualize Indian nation. This is especially true because of how the poet is able to make the image of India come alive. The essay relays on Nila in flood time and The deserted temple to analyze how Nambisan portrays India in his narrations.

In Nila in flood time, the poet writes about how India looks like in July.

Today is the 10 years anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake. About fifteen thousand people died in this earthquake. I posted my writing on Facebook on that day. After I wrote it, I knew that nuclear power plants were broken by this earthquake and tsunami, and that the radiation was diffusing from there. Many people must have been evacuated from their homes.

 

My writing on that day

Today, at about 3 p.m, the largest earthquake in recorded history since about 130 years ago occurred in Japan

Do you want to become a politician?

If you want to become rich, you should do business.

If you want to become famous and popular, you should become an actor, actress or entertainer.

You should not become a politician asking for those things.

Only people who want to work for their nations should become politicians.
