TL;DR -- The fundamentals behind New England and its long reach about which we have a focus and write about? The advent of technology of recent which motivates both awe and angst? What is it about language, and why is the English world where these phenomena came about? Mind you, that's a huge leap in time and culture with which we have to deal. But, research opportunities are endless.
We have to be technical from several angles as we proceed. Until then, assume that structure will emerge in the same sense as it would in a multi-disciplinary study. Today, we look at language since we have ChatGPT and Bing and others to look at. Where OpenAI's thing is known to have 'fake' as a basis. In fact, Bing needs to learn a lot, too.
And, so, the focus is on "language as a loom" and upon English. The following list gets us started with the lead one being a former post. Then we consider a book from 1944 which I ran across today while browsing videos on language and learning. Finally, we go to Wikipedia, specifically to pull information about English which is our history.
- The English Language Project (August, 2022) -- the language of King Alfred the Great. The proposal is a commemoration every year in October.
- Frederick Bodmer, The Loom of Language (1944) -- made available by Google Books, the introduction was in the LetThemTalk TV on youtube: THIS is the Best Book on Language Learning I've Ever Read: HERE'S WHAT IT SAYS. The video is from 2020; just saw it; though, I have watched a few of the videos by this gent.
- English language -- in the video, there is some reference to Germanic or French influence, given the history of England with quotes from analysis reported via Wikipedia (which is a community-supported encyclopedia that began and continues as an on-line source).
- English people -- this page is part of the Culture of England series of pages.
We started with English and will cover more as we go along. What's next? Perhaps, Latin? To wit, the appearance of very good Latin schools in New England. Kidding. Perhaps, Spanish? After all, New Spain had more territory.
