Journal Index of Word Info Efforts and Achievements
(listings of logs, or blogs, sharing personal stepping stones and stumbling blocks)
All of this information has been gathered together and organized to provide a richer source of content in this lexicon of English words derived primarily from Latin and Greek origins and presented in this Word Info site.
Including first attempts to include a journal/log/blog about the work being done for the Word Info lexicon; and excerpts of articles from The Futurist magazine about "Catching Getaway Cars" with a net; "Japan's Approach to Aging and Dying"; and an introduction to an article about the "Forecasts of H.G.Wells" regarding our modern world which he made in 1900.
Including some historical prospectives about the Word Info lexicon; and more excerpts from The Futurist magazine about the "Forecasts of H.G.Wells" regarding our modern world which he made in 1900.
The first chapter includes Mr. Wells forecasts about the "decline of the steam engine and the rise of new modes of transportation".
Comments about working on the "feather, feather-like" units with links to each group of words.
There is no information about H.G. Wells' forecasts from his book Anticipations in today's journal.
Groups of word families which were completed in the past are listed with easy to follow links; including such word groups as: "feathers", "science-related topics", "rubbing", "caves", and "hair" subjects.
Another section in predictions that H.G. Wells made in 1901 about "a new way of living in the city-suburb complex" is also included.
There are also some quotes about urban growth from the UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) whic is related to Mr. Wells' predictions.
Additional efforts to complete the aesthe-, esthe- unit continued; however, another unit of -lagnia words from the Greek-Latin element meaning, "lust, lustful, lecherous; salaciousness", etc. also required attention. The topic may not be pleasant for some users, but this is a dictionary and people need to know what such terms mean if they ever come across them.
Another section in predictions that H.G. Wells made in 1901 about "social stratification" is also included.
A few words about the special illustrated English History and Its Development. This is a very significant group of images which are geared to present a greater interest and understanding of how English developed its vocabulary.
Another section in predictions that H.G. Wells made in 1901 about "moral relativism and the decline of codes of conduct" is also included.
Special excerpts from the September 8, 2007, issue of the New Scientist and an introduction to the subject of "oxo-degradable" which was seen on the magazine wrapper.
Another special summary of an article titled, "Nothing but a ray of light" about the dangerous use of X-rays to remove excess body hair, or hypertricosis; as seen in the September 8, 2007, issue of the New Scientist and the discovery; as well as, the inclusion, of a new unit of "leg" or cruro- words and links to other "leg" related units.
A short entry today primarily about the origin and meaning of "It's all Greek to me."
Two articles from Discover Magazine pointing out potential harm to the brain resulting from stress; as well as, information about a rare affliction of "hypersomnia", or "Rip Van Winkle Disease"; also known as "Kleine-Levin syndrome".
Another short entry today because of other activities which needed attention.
