BOOK REVIEW GARNER'S DICTIONARY OF LEGAL USAGE Third Edition Editor: Bryan A. Garner ISBN: 978 0 19 538420 8 Oxford University Press www.oup.com A PARADIGM FOR GUIDANCE ON LEGAL WRITING An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers It is ironic, is it not, that 'legal language' quite often seems opaque and all too often is so; unfortunate too, as the law is based on words, forms of words, meanings of words and their interpretation, connotation and usage. One wonders how often cases have been initiated, then won or lost because someone or other has misconstrued or misinterpreted some word or other -- or some phrase or other. If you're a lawyer, legal scholar, student, or generally someone who is fascinated by the power of language and who seeks to speak and write with clarity, precision and force, Garner's Dictionary of Legal Usage is the resource for you. Here it is from the Oxford University Press in a new enlarged and updated third edition and a remarkable work of lexicography it is. But it's not just a dictionary. It also functions as an authoritative guide to style, grammar and usage. As you look up each word, you are offered not just a definition, but a discussion of its significance, its origins, indeed all its aspects pertaining to law, complete with meticulously cited sources. Prolifically and painstakingly (and often entertainingly) the learned editor, Bryan A Garner, internationally acknowledged as a top authority on legal usage, seeks to blow away the cobwebs of complexity and confusion which may surround any number of terms. 'Testatorial, testorial, testatory' is an example. What's the difference? What is the most common form? Is there a reference to the OED? Look these up if you wish to know. You'll find them just before the word 'testatrix', which the editor quite rightly has a down on. 'This word is useless,' he growls. 'testator quite properly referring to men and women alike. See SEXISM.' Well -- you've been told, haven't you? And you have been referred onward toward further research as well. It's a comprehensive, erudite and easy to use resource which lawyers and laymen alike will find invaluable. Synonyms, for example, are precisely differentiated and defined and such areas of law as immigration, intellectual property are discussed in the clear light of day. Ooops... we shouldn't have said that! Garner and his team have provided a pungent entry on the matter of clichés and overused words which ideally we must avoid, although some of our pet hates have been left out like 'iconic' and 'going forward.' These will no doubt surface in the next edition! Usefully, the orientation of this dictionary (of almost 1,000 pages) is transatlantic. So whether your practice is in the UK or North America, this is certainly an indispensable guide to writing or editing legal documents, books or articles with enhanced clarity, accuracy and style. The publication date is July 2011.

How to Market a Dictionary, 1970s Style
 
16:52
To today’s viewer, the short film made in 1973 for an American Heritage Dictionary marketing campaign looks silly and dated (typewriters? secretaries?). But that’s what makes it so much fun to watch. A takeoff on popular TV shows and movies, it was produced by Bill Miller Film and features dictionary staff and other Houghton Mifflin employees performing skits about pronunciation, usage, and meaning. Watch a well-dressed, middle-aged woman get doused with water (“I said vichyssoise, not Vichy water! Ho ho!! All the way down!”). Watch a person in a bear suit run around a secretary’s desk hoisting a chair (“Take a seat, Mr. Bear”). Watch a man on the street being asked what he thinks about the sentence “The boy was bit by the dog” (“That’s too bad!!”). Watch--well, just watch the whole thing. It’s good for a few laughs and as a reminder of the excitement surrounding the publication of a fledgling American dictionary (first published in 1969). Direct from the dusty archives, we are pleased to present “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About: Sects, Sets, Sex, prefix, frankforts, Waldorf, idle, American, peanuts, gin, Heritage, cabbage, Dictionary, Rasputin, bassoon, cohort, rum, putty, rotor, usage, coquette, alfalfa, zipper, Mississippi, ... etc.: But Were Afraid to Axe!!” See more at http://www.ahdictionary.com You can also get the latest edition of the American Heritage Dictionary and find out what usage has changed since the 1970s here: http://www.hmhco.com/shop/books/The-American-Heritage-Desk-Dictionary-Fifth-Edition/9780547708133

The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide  to Writing in the 21st Century
 
02:09:41
WHY IS SO MUCH WRITING SO BAD, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do people write badly on purpose, to obfuscate and impress? Have dictionaries abandoned their responsibility to safeguard correct usage? Do kids today even care about good writing? In his latest book the Harvard linguist, cognitive scientist, bestselling author (The Language Instinct, How the Mind Works, The Blank Slate, and The Better Angels of Our Nature) and chair of the Usage Panel of The American Heritage Dictionary, Dr. Steven Pinker, answers these questions and more. Pinker applies insights from the sciences of language and mind to the challenge of crafting clear, coherent, and stylish prose. Filled with examples of great and gruesome modern prose, The Sense of Style shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right, that is also informed by science. A book signing will follow the lecture. http://www.skeptic.com/upcoming-lectures/sense-of-style-writing-in-21st-century/

Bilingual dictionary A bilingual dictionary or translation dictionary is a specialized dictionary used to translate words or phrases from one language to another Bilingual dictionaries can be unidirectional, meaning that they list the meanings of words of one language in another, or can be bidirectional, allowing translation to and from both languages Bidirectional bilingual dictionaries usually consist of two sections, each listing words and phrases of one language alphabetically along with their translation In addition to the translation, a bilingual dictionary usually indicates the part of speech, gender, verb type, declension model and other grammatical clues to help a non-native speaker use the word Other features sometimes present in bilingual dictionaries are lists of phrases, usage and style guides, verb tables, maps and grammar references In contrast to the bilingual dictionary, a monolingual dictionary defines words and phrases instead of translating them Contents 1 History 2 Challenges 3 Usage 4 Formats 5 Distribution 6 Multilingual dictionaries 7 Publishers 8 See also 9 References 10 Ext Bilingual dictionary Click for more; https://www.turkaramamotoru.com/en/bilingual-dictionary-32823.html There are excerpts from wikipedia on this article and video

Trump Gets Schooled By Merriam-Webster Dictionary For His Word Usage
 
00:47
The folks at Merriam-Webster Dictionary were among the millions who tuned in last night to watch the first 2016 presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The dictionary schooled the GOP nominee for his use of the word "braggadocious," a word which he's used in debates before. During the debate Trump said, “I have tremendous income, and the reason I say it is not in a braggadocious way.” Merriam-Webster quickly tweeted, "He was trying for braggadocio." However, Vocabulary.com has argued that the word is acceptable, stating that despite the fact that is sounds like a "funny, made-up word" it's been used here and there since 1853. http://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/the-wrap/article/Merriam-Webster-Dictionary-Schools-Donald-Trump-9291011.php http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

According to Meriam Webster Dictionary, Fashion is a prevailing custom usage on style on the other hand fashion is a popular style or practice especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, make-up, hairstyle and body. It is a distinctive and often constant trend in the style in which a person dresses, according to wikipedia. Fashion for me is a way of expressing your identity in a way that creativity and uniqueness matters. It is something that helps you boost your self-esteem. Nowadays fashion has evolved in so many levels. It gives color in our world that us purely black and white. But I was never a guy who’s always trendy and stylish. But growing up I learned how to express my identity and that helped me boost my confidence. So when I started my college years I invested into clothing, shoes and accessories. I also begun to have my hair styled and cut in a way that’s trendy. My love for fashion and curiosity in other styles helped me find my identity. It provided me comfort for expressing my inner self and letting the world see who I am without me being anxious of what others will say. Fashion is significant especially to people like me who are expressive. It gives you so much space for expressing your uniqueness and creativity.

06 tips to learn and remember a new English Vocabulary daily -- Free English Lessons
 
07:46
06 tips to learn and remember a new English Vocabulary daily -- Free English Lessons The most important thing about learning vocabulary is to use new words and just reading a list of new words would not help. It is essential to remember the new word learnt so here are some tips that will help you to do so. 1) Use the new word in a sentence: After you have read the word and understood its meaning, use the new word in your own sentence. Try to create sentences in context with your daily life. 2) Look for grammatical Variations: Look for various grammatical forms of the new word that u learns. For example the word entice is a verb where as the adjective form is enticing and the adverb is enticingly. Enticed would be the past and past participle of the word entice. Once you have the different grammatical forms you would end up learning many words just with one word. 3) Learn Associations and Connections: Try to associate and connect the word more with the help of the search engines like Google. Look for its synonyms and antonyms. Again this will help you to learn more words connected to the original word you have learnt. 4) Always carry a notepad with you: Write the word, its meaning and a sentence in a small notepad or your smart phone that you can carry it around. Go though these words in your spare time. This will help you to remember it well. 5) Make Flash Cards: Make little flash cards with each new word on one side and the meaning on the other. Put them on the ground and if the meaning is face up try to think of the word or vice versa. 6) Learn the word again before you forget: Don't just learn or practice a word a day and then forget about it. Its important to remember it. Therefore to remember it reuse the word, keep practicing it till it sticks in your long term memory. These six tips would help you to learn and remember new words and therefore increase your vocabulary which eventually would excel your communication skills.

Because chances are those jerks are enforcing a few fake grammar rules that today’s linguists and style manuals don’t support. No Initial Coordinators! So you’ve probably been told never to begin a sentence with “coordinators” like “and,” “so” or “but.” But this is not just dead wrong; it’s un-dead wrong. Linguist Arnold Zwicky calls “No Initial Coordinators” a “zombie rule”; no matter how many times you shoot this ghoul down, it keeps coming back. Zwicky speculates that the fake rule comes from elementary school teachers fighting against children’s tendency to overuse conjunctions: “And I went to lunch. And I ate tater tots. And then, and then, and then…” Passive voice. OK, we can all agree that using the passive voice too often is really annoying. “The trout was caught by Alice.” “The gallon of ice cream was eaten by Jeffrey.” Passive voice makes sentences sound like they come from a police blotter, but there’s nothing technically wrong with it. Some writers use passive voice in moderation for effect or to vary sentence structure. It’s not wrong. But yes, it should be used frugally. Less is fewer. In 1770, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary of English Usage laid down the law: The word “less” is used to describe an uncountable collection: “less water,” “less respect.” “Fewer” is for countable objects: “fewer blueberries,” “fewer rubber gloves.” But this doesn’t always work. I mean, is it really better to say “The party is fewer than 5 miles away,” or “The plumber says it will take fewer than 2 hours?” If “fewer” makes the sentence clang, don’t feel pressure to use it. Never end a sentence with a preposition. Some languages actually do ban the terminal preposition, like Classical Latin. And the Anglican bishop Robert Lowth continued this convention in an English grammar guide he published in 1762. But English isn’t Latin, and other linguists have pointed out that it’s perfectly natural to end an English sentence with a preposition. This is one wrong grammar rule up with which I will not put. Never split an infinitive. Infinitives: The pure, un-conjugated form of a verb. In English, they come pre-packaged with the word “to.” So: “To dig,” “to sneeze,” “to saw”. Splitting is when you stick an adverb in there: “to gleefully saw.” Though high school teachers love to get the red pen out for this one, modern style guides are almost unanimous in saying you should feel free to proudly split infinitives when the sentence calls for it. What’s your favorite grammar rule to pedantically enforce? Let us know in the comments and subscribe! And check out 10 Wrong Grammar Rules Everyone Knows at HowStuffWorks to learn more!

Enlightenment now: Steven Pinker/JB Peterson
 
01:05:55
I spoke with Harvard's Dr. Steven Pinker about the immense improvements in human living conditions that are now happening with amazing speed almost everywhere in the world -- as detailed in his new book, Enlightenment Now! (https://amzn.to/2jDwv7D) -- a careful, clear-headed and data-driven defense of the rational/scientific worldview that helped make such improvement possible). Dr. Pinker grew up in Montreal and earned his BA from McGill and his PhD from Harvard. Currently Johnstone Professor of Psychology at Harvard, he has also taught at Stanford and MIT. He has won numerous prizes for his research, his teaching, and his nine books, including: The Language Instinct (https://amzn.to/2JXZcai), How the Mind Works (https://amzn.to/2KEh77f), The Blank Slate (https://amzn.to/2jzXsZO), The Better Angels of Our Nature (https://amzn.to/2rnkqHF), and The Sense of Style (https://amzn.to/2wf5WyI). He is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, a Humanist of the Year, a recipient of nine honorary doctorates, and one of Foreign Policy’s “World’s Top 100 Public Intellectuals” and Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World Today.” He is Chair of the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary, and writes frequently for The New York Times, The Guardian, and other publications.

There are words in English that work both as a noun and verb - so by learning one work your learning two -    work, drive, try, kiss, drink, dream, milk (доить), hope, love 2. Words that end with -tion would be almost the same in your own language, super easy to learn - ambition (ambicion, Ambition, ambitzione), motivation (motivacion, Motivation, motivazione). Dissertation, profession, portion, intonation, convention, sanction, concentration, delegation, illustration 3. Look for images for particular words - you will be surprised you’ve already used them a lot in your life. Sometimes words just remind you of something - a song, a band. Spear which is a weapon - I think of Britney Spears. Beetle = a bug, Volkswagen New Beetle car, which looks like a bug, gosling - is a baby goose - and you know who I am thinking about - Ryan Gosling. 4. Some words have several meanings - try to learn at least a couple of meanings to diversify your vocabulary - fire = flame, to let someone go (employee), date = going out with a loved one, date as a fruit, date as a day in a calendarmiss = to skip something, to long to see someone, miss like a girl 5.

Shtick was adopted from the Old High German stucki, which eventually became stock in modern english. Shtick got it’s meaning from when you have a stock of some item you know you can always go to that stock and retrieve the same item over and over. When the word became applied to performance it literally meant you could return to a particular performer for a particular type of entertainment.

For years I had a negative association with the word shtick that generally indicated that the performer was lazy and couldn’t do anything original.
