Hey Red. This thread is great.  I found this intereting series of videos on the history of the English Language.  It's interesting how english 'borrows' words from other languages and ads them into the lexicon.  Changing morphemes to suit accents within regions, etc. A continuing kalaidascope of colorful communication.

4 Changes to English So Subtle We Hardly Notice They're Happening
http://mentalfloss.c...heyre-happening

Everyone knows that language changes. It's easy to pick out words that have only been recently introduced (bromance, YOLO, derp) or sentence constructions that have gone out of style (How do you do? Have you a moment?), but we are constantly in the middle of language change that may not be noticeable for decades or even centuries.

Weird Forgotten English Words We Should Bring Back
http://mentalfloss.c...ould-bring-back

English changes all the time, often in subtle ways—so it's not surprising that we've lost many delightful words and phrases along the way. In his wonderful book Forgotten English, Jeffrey Kacirk takes a closer look at the origins and histories of these language relics. Here are a few of our favorite words from the book; for more, check out Kacirk's website.

Infancy Gospel of Thomas

 

 7. And Zacchaeus, having written the alphabet in Hebrew, says to Him: Alpha. And the child says: Alpha. And again the teacher: Alpha; and the child likewise. Then again the teacher says the Alpha for the third time. Then Jesus, looking in the master's face, says: How canst thou, not knowing the Alpha, teach another the Beta? And the child, beginning from the Alpha, said by Himself the twenty-two letters. Then also He says again: Hear, O teacher, the order of the first letter, and know how many entrances and lines it has, and strokes common, crossing and coming together.1 And when Zacchaeus heard such an account of the one letter, he was so struck with astonishment, that he could make no answer. And he turned and said to Joseph: This child assuredly, brother, does not belong to the earth. Take him, then, away from me.

 

perception (n.)

late 14c., "receiving, collection," from Latin perceptionem (nominative perceptio) "perception, apprehension, a taking," from percipere "perceive" (see perceive). First used in the more literal sense of the Latin word; in secondary sense, "the taking cognizance of," it is recorded in English from 1610s. Meaning "intuitive or direct recognition of some innate quality" is from 1827.
perception

per·cep·tion \pər-ˈsep-shən\

The thing is, we, as human beings, are using more than one sense at a time.  All the time!  Like that Simpson cartoon mentioned above...did you 'hear' the characters trademark 'morpheme' utterances in your head.  Of course, the visual aid of resemblance is there for all to see.  Unheard, unseen, unfelt...yada yada!

Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.

The Core of Lexicon - Bacon and eggs!
 
 The rise of interest in the high level learning of english translation(s).
 Understanding the educational level of words with pretentious and silly satire and comedy.
 Satire is more negative and tragic. While comedy is more positive in providing consensus and agreement.
 English transformed itself into a language of learned discourse through a concerted effort to improve the language. This came from latin borrowing using "written language".
 A concerted effort began to improve english for changing perceptions and behavior by 'introllducing' this new 'written' english language into plays, publications, and advertisments for the general public to consume.
 
 Funny how threads of inference from many sources can weave warrants for futher investigation(s)! Multi perceptive boosts take more than one person to accomplish.....

 

Here is a nice little video on perceptions and psychology. But, told in simple terms, which I like.  When you 'compare it to other fields' one can realize just how small one really is.  Even the ones who implement these mind control techniques for their own benefit are affected. Perhaps, maybe even shrinking themselves into nothingness and oblivion for using this 'majick' negatively upon unsuspecting, innocent human beings.
 

We only use 10% of our brain capacity!
