Dictionaries were invented to make the meaning of words same for all.. Universal!! So does it imply that people used to have no common words and no common meanings before the invention of dictionaries??
Its interesting how such an idea stuck me!! I was talking to a friend some days before and we defined watching “TeleVision” and spending time differently. For her it was a duty and for me, such a waste of time!! I know many must have started hating me after reading the last line..
But its not just about watching TV or any other stuff. Its all together a different issue.
We as humans, use the same words, but we mean it differently and in some cases, different meanings of the same word in front of different persons. Is it Magic or games being played??
We all are made that way. We give definitions to all the words ourselves. We always try to use the defined meanings of a dictionary but one can’t always accept ALL the things that’s written and sometimes try to make his own meaning for a word. And, after that he tries to make his known people know his own meaning of the word. I most certainly do for sure.
I change some proverbs a little bit here and there and feel that, yes my version is more apt than the original one.
“If there’s a will, there are many ways.”
I find it more perfect.
I personally feel more good to make some minor changes and try to look at this world from that point. You define the words, the other way round is just a myth.
If you have any kind of your own versions of proverb or saying,then please feel free to comment it here and let the world know about your inner Dictionary of your mind.
