In many African cultures we find philosophical thought that expresses an under-
standing of words as a creative and transformative force. Words are seen as a
means by which ideas are made real and concrete. In African culture, the naming
of an object or person gives it meaning by identification and location. These
cultural perspectives allowed us to see the magical transformative effects of
words and speech in relation to ourselves and the world around us. Africans
developed a ...

Only with this “under-standing” can we point out, locate, show and properly teach
anything in our living Dasein. The teacher is the one who stands near the gods
and who thus is rooted in his lordly inner self, his Ka. Tracing words which have
been abused and made shallow to their original sources in Nature's play is the
restoration of their pristine, poetical shine, comparable to cleansing worn coins
which then reacquire their former gleam. Such tracing is in no wise a scrupulous

... what I am sharing with you. Learning to love yourself starts in the home with
parents who unconditionally accept and embrace their children. This is truly a
learned behavior. Daughter, never do anything that will put you in a
compromising position or bring you and your family shame, embarrassment, or
humiliation. Always leave the home with your name in good standing and be sure
to bring it back home the same way you left with it....with your name in good
standing. In other words ...

Whenever in a sentence words standing for the property fexpect a word standing
for the object a, in reality a has f (= the pervasion-rule). But surely the pervasion-
rule is too generous. In the sequence “Gorbachev is back in power” words do
expect each other but we do not thereby know that Gorbachev is back in power.
So mere expectancy will not do as a mark. To tighten up this inference into a
sound form we have to add the semantic feature of “fitness” of the meant entities

Please take a moment to visit Glenn's website, he has so many great prints
available, including this one titled “Manann Mclir the Celtic God of the Sea by
Glenn Miles”, an absolutely stunning image. When I look at this image, I imagine I
am the statue, raising my arms to Heaven in praise and honor of my KING's
Majestic Throne. The Red Letters are the Words of my Lord JESUS CHRIST. I
always loved the Red Letter editions of the Bible, it always seemed to add weight
to HIS Words.

GROSE, J. I agree that the plain construction of the words is that which has been
put upon them by my Lord. The landlord agrees to pay the value for such growth
of coppice as should be standing at the end of the term demised. What growth is
that? The only growth before mentioned is one of less than ten years ; it must
therefore refer to that. LE BLANC, I. I have the misfortune to differ from my Lord
and my Brothers in the meaning of this covenant; but it strikes me at present not
