A book of many words; not to be read as a regular book of leisure, poses much fun if used for this though. especially when you get to the prefixes and suffixes. YEH!

The standard dictionary is a great way to get everyone to think and act the same way. It defines terms the way the writers like Webster want people to accept the words. Once the words are locked in as meaningful, the next step is the encyclopedia. This is all condoned by the Church, State, Military, Industrial, Education, Crime, Pseudo-Crime fighting masses to control everyone for the writer's own advantage and stop change. If anyone has a different definition of a word, one of the above mentioned group members says, "that is not the meaning of the word." So we all end up thinking and acting the same way, killing each other and burning up the world. Words are much more tricky than people think. Most people think "Peace" is the opposit of "War," because that is what the "dictionary," says; but nothing has lead to "War," more than "Peace." Either way one looses, when one follows the standard dictionary, encyclopedia, church. state, military, industrial, crime, pseudo crime fighting worded way. In the beginning was not "The Word," it was, "What was." Words are hints to get us where we need to go. If one accepts them totally as given by the standard dictionary, one is a word fundamentalist, which leads to other fundamentalist wars such as we now have.
"Eddie looked it up in the dictionary, that prooves he's right." Despite the fact that none of these words have any absolute meaning.

A compiled collection of what was every known word still in present use in the english language. It was put together in an attempt to stem the mutation of the already unstable english language and keep it in a fair condition for future generations. Though dialects have evolved since then, it has managed to maintain the grammatical and vocabulary structures of the language to a good enough point that present society can still read old language tracts without much effort. For example of success; latin, due to its spoken frequency and under developed linguistical records, after the collapse of the culture, mutated into the romantic languages of French, Spanish and Italien, while English after subsequent invasions became a hybrid of Norse (Frissian dialect) and Germanic. Only after a dictionary was written around the 17th century did the English language stabalize into its still recognizable form today.

When in doubt, look it up.
