With all due respect, it is a bit insulting to call people Vulcans for literally taking your repeated references to 'compound words' as an honest-to-goodness compound word. How are we going to attack the English language and etymology here if we are not all on the same page and all have an understanding of English grammar?

quite- but Vulcans do not speak English as their first language so- besides the logical nature of said fictional race, there is quite a scientific distance from the actual subject itself due to it being an acquired language- more than a human could understand. were we talking about the Vulcan language I would be humbled by your knowledge, I am sure.


Vulcan = Vul Can......Vul= (Chaldean) The god of the atmosphere, equivalent to the Hindu Indra. He was superseded in later times by Anu, the god of heaven, who with Bel and Ea formed the great Babylonian triad.

bump......makes you slow down.....
umpire......makes the calls
vampire.......an umpire who can only play 3 chords........
chump.......

I recall an American televised sitcom show - `Three's Company` - and one of the actors misread the following word:

Therapist


a person trained in the use of psychological methods for helping patients overcome psychological problems.


Instead of reading the business card as `therapist` she saw: the rapist! So on a side note, perhaps the `shrinks` are truly what they do best - `screwing with the minds` of people (who should learn very hard to COPE with their own problems the best way they can without submitting to `therapists`). Get it?

Words truly have multiple meanings, indeed.

I think this thread could benefit from some knowledge of linguistics. First off you're only focusing on English, which is an amalgamation of mainly German, French, and Latin. So, instead of looking at pseudohomophones maybe you should be looking into the actual etymology of words. At least do some research into the Green Language or Kabbalah before trying to make some juvenile attempt at looking for a hidden meaning in language.

if someone who sings is "singing" then someone like you- a mean poster- would be "meaning" just now.......

the point is that the English language is crafted (from all the others) to mean very specific things. sure- looking at other languages helps break down the English programming we receive (personally i have studied French, Hebrew, Tibetan, Sanskrit, and Russian) but I am insisting that in this language of English EVERY word has a "spiritual meaning", if you will, beyond grammar. it cant be proven but by slowly lifting the veil here it's possible that you or i will discover the truth on our own.

please contribute to the discussion- there is no reason to get emotional.


EDIT-

OK i can't resist------what's the Green Language? is that something Obama is pushing through Congressssssssss?
