Write something using rare English Oct. 18th, 2013 @ 11:21 PM Reply

All too often, fluent speakers use the same boring syntax, the same regular vocabulary, and the same relaxed grammar, paying no mind to the full expanse of the language they've been given. In this thread, try not to use common English.

Use rare words, build new words, steal words from other languages (A, B, C, D), write in with bizarre structures, and use defunct punctuation marks.

Here are the rules:

• You must write at least one sentence.
• Your post must convey meaning, it mustn't be a jumble of words.
• If you borrow words from other languages, you must define them.
• If you build a word or a compound word, it must be rooted properly, and it must be defined.

Too dilatory is infinity, that we as putative mortals, manage to realize our own follies. Shepard me, please, towards the privy of such a mortal. For that mortal be not I.

Books look better torn to bits, pages with shredded edges· marked up margins: used to learn; never paper walls on wooden shelves… except in storefronts.

A sauntering plant; a sycophant, to an opulent degree; we the gallery of a fluorescent sea, garnished by our faculties, taken into the fray, with an odyssey of conveyance.

Seems a kind of pseudish act; to smith meaning for a linguistic schema rather than the other way about.

Just to say so: These images come clothed in fluency but aren't of its fabric. To evidence fluency with detached clauses is to feign nonchalance by sulking. And, withal, fluency's raison d'être is to clearly convey meaning in a manner coherent - I might say that, within the form-content dichotomy's paradigm, you seem pretty content with pretty form without forming content.

This isn't going to work, but I'll give it a shot:

I find most music too pretentious. There is no meaning; it's almost as if you're expected to know a whole set of lore before listening. In my OPINION (not fact) electronic music is like an anachronism from the future. My cultural knowledge just doesn't fill the requirements for listening.

Not as fancy as the other posts, but whatever. I put a few fancy-pants words in there.

Postulating stationery can be utterly lugubrious. Although, it can be derisive to one's well-being if you were to partake in an act of monogamy. Always be reminiscent of the fact that everyone's survival rate drops to zero.


I appreciate any sort of criticism on my writing; please, anything will make my day.

This thread seems like a nice place to enhance my vocabulary, so I think I'll be posting in this semi-daily.

Salvation or damnation. It is not the culmination of your deeds. Apologies.

Apparently I have lied about doing this daily, but whatevs, I do what I want. The man isn't going to bring me down, you know?

The civilization had reached it's zenith, only to plummet down into a nadir. (Man that's wimpy, but I don't have a lot of time for computer today)

It is all fallacy, this zealous drive. It is ubiquitous and requires cessation instantaneously.

That is because I haven't the reason to write it in its complete form. I only vie to reflect the world's nature towards its relative proneness to asunder. I am proving that words are limited symbols to which whose conveyed messages are presented daily, and that we are sycophants of not only each other, but mother nature as well - not only that, but to reveal that very sycophant-like nature which lies dormant within our existential crisises, and how we depend on the distinctions we've created rather than the details that formally existed therein. A space that glows in its finest darkness, we are only living in our lies, whilst what is real is ceasing fathom in all of its form and intracacies. The incomplete sentence I'd written may be formless on the surface, but like the mysteries of our surrounding oceans, there are many forms of life to discover beneath the simplistic isles; much like our ideas and conflictions within our very own minds' stages of stasis. Simply because the surface appears calm, does not represent the further depths of its advocations...


You do not make examples, you make excuses; you do not solve problems, you shift problems; you do not stand behind your statements, you stand behind your stasis.

Upon perusing this skein of posts - diligently, deliberately, and, perplexingly, without any great trouble despite the claim of unorthodox usage of queer and infrequent words - I wished to transcribe a bit of ponderous prose myself. The deliberations commenced as I undertook the difficult task of wresting a decision from my indecisive mind. Shall I, perhaps, cast a malediction, or, better still, a proclamation? Such petty use of prose, as seen hitherto, is normally an anathema to me, but in such a context its usage seems tolerable. I should not think, exempli gratia, that anyone would wish to read any large text written in this manner, but when considering that the outcome of any proclamation in which such words were used would be furthered by such a usage, seeking out a mot juste for each instance of common word transforms the crass and boorish exercise into a delectation.

Therefore, I shall proclaim my appreciation of this logorrhea and, in my loquacity, wish only to add to the amusement and not to create vexation.

Let me mabble my dialog with a simple request. I would wish to see this thread taken further.

There was a severe feeling of tartle※ from which Dave, whom Tom Fulp selected to host the ceremony, was suffering. Tom was forced to waffle the name of Tom.

❧Retorted Tom, “A move, smooth, you have just made⸮”

The term the ※ mark addresses is the stress from announcing a name.

Hark the pitches and tones of the malleable, wretched senses of vexation.
Descry tears of azure tears percolating ambivalent animus.

Inhale, exhume. Long derived from sociopathy.
Exhale, inhume. Nay 'tis but altruism.

Hark!


Live in your world, play in mine...

I perceived by minute chance a resplendent, luciferous artifact of forgotten yore; dust of a temporal, lacunose mystery stowed soothingly into the crisp golden sand.

Hmm, I don't suppose you forgot to say it had to make sense? Many here flounder in their ignorance of the glorious nature language holds. Besides which, stealing words from other languages isn't using rare English, it's using other languages. The magnitude of this heinous fallacy causes a deep, immense vat of regret to well up within me... See guys? No need to even go off topic in spinning an entirely new tale

I am nothing, but dust into the wind. The soul I once held, no longer with me. Death has come, and be I not the one to make him wait. So with a final prayer, and with one last sacrament. I lay thy self to rest, goodnight, and I welcome a Initum Novum
