mmkay.. if what DBD was typing in the 'statement' in elementary type debate here was meant in a "capable of changing position, or arousing deep emotion." way her sentence(more accurately what was written in parathesis) would not be entirely valid(or make complete sense, also taking into account other words that were used in the same sentence.). meaning you have only ONE valid statement above, which isnt much. and further more does not disprove anything i had typed previously....meaning the falsification stands.(also, if you missed the part where i was clarifying the manipulations of language in general, and how human beings generally conceive and project language as a whole maybe you should re-read...)
alright... lets elaborate on the differences in dictionaries&or encyclopedias now shall we?!... ok...
your dictionary presumably says the following:
1: Changing or capable of changing position
2: Causing or producing motion.
3: Arousing or capable of arousing deep emotion
here are some other definitions of the term moving(as well as move, and movement.. since they are obviously related(move being a root term im sure)/and therefore very similar in meaning..correct?)--
1:to change ones position, or cause to do this.
2:to change the position of.
4:to change one's place.
5:change to new premises
6:cause to be evacuated
7:change one's place of residence.
1:the act or an instance of moving
2:a change of house, business premises etc.
3:a step taken to secure an action or effect.
1:the act or instance of being moved.
2:the moving parts of a mechanism.
3:a body or persons with a common object
4:a person's activities at a particular time.
1:that moves or causes to move.
2:affecting with emotion.
so ok..lets break this down just alittle more..
the fact that the term moving was used in the particular placement of the sentence that it was..(which would be between the words is and to, which also may affect the meaning of the entire sentence in fact) .. ill just throw down some more definitions for you.. to further elaborate...
is: 3rd sing.present of be
sing. present of
1:to exist, live
2a:occur, take place
b:occupy a position in space
(so far it seems that the sentence appears to be presenting the idea that DIGIT would...in fact... be occupying residence in SLC, UT. .. or, remaining even, which is not the case.)
to: before a vowel, prep. & adverb
1:expressing what is reached, approached
2:expressing what is aimed at
3:as far as, up to.
4:to the extent of
and blah blah blah.
i think i've made my point as far as the combination of wording in the actual sentence goes.
but..why not just type some random definitions anyhow..?!
1a: a double meaning which is either deliberate or caused by inexactness of expression.
1b:an example of this.
2:an expression able to be interpreted in more than one way.
(yes.more or less what i was explaining earlier.)
1:the method of human communication, either spoken or written, consisting of the use of words in an agreed way.
2:the language of a particular community
3a:a faculty of speech
b:a faculty of expression, the use of words.
1:to handle or use skillfully
2:manage to ones own advantage.
3:to alter, edit or move(text, data, etc.)
1:fraudulently alter or make false.
1a:the act or process of defining
b:the statement of the meaning of the word or the nature of a thing
2a:a degree of distinctness in outline of an object or image.
b:making or being distinct.
and like i was saying somewhere up there when i started this reply there are many different kinds of dictionaries & encyclopedias.. the source for my definitions was:The Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary (just incase you were curious)
and i know other dictionaries have slightly different definitions(as ive shown) because of printing/republishing, editions, etc.
and i suppose if you'd like to also go into the entire english language... we could start analysing grammer, structures of sentences, the differences between past, present, and future tents etcetera etcetera ectfuckingcetra ..wouldnt that be worththewaste!
i dont even know why i am bothering with this(perhaps because im stubborn?)..the circumstances/and or reasons in fact for DIGIT staying in SLC for awhile and visiting me, are really none of your business, let alone sk.net's. and so i guess.. in the end ..everyone will ultimately assume...and think what they will.
i just dont want assumptions/misrepresentations/or misinformation being presented as truth(at least with my involvement)
and like i said.. thanks for the clarification, it was needed.
