a regular occurrence in ‘everyday wordplay’ – WORD UP!

CAMEO is a famous (or authenticated) person who is portraying NO false character, but instead his/her authentic self. When you do a cameo, you appear authentically. The band named “Cameo” made the song and phrase/meme – “Word Up” – famous with help from Hollywood and you and me.

“I’m listening” or “I hear you.” – WORD UP! It means a word has a ‘meaning/movement’ to you and has sparked your emotion to consider actions and policy change. It means, you are on the move! Word up!

Are words important? Word up!

“all you sucker DJs who think you’re fly There’s got to be a reason and we know the reason why You try to put on those airs and act real cool But you got to realize that you’re acting like a fool if it’s a music, we can use it

– When you hear the call you’ve got to get it under way”

Kornie, ain’t it?2

 It is believed to date back to the early 1970s and meant “truth” or “so true.” A song by the American band Cameo is usually credited for popularizing the term, however. There are many variations of the song, some of which were more popular in certain countries. In the famous youtube video,  LeVar Burton appears as a police detective trying to arrest the band.

 Cameo; a short piece of writing which neatly encapsulates something – aka – a small distinctive part played by a distinguished or well known personality/actor. ORIGIN Latin cammaeus.

1986 Cameo – Word Up!

“Word Up” is a saying that was popular in New York and other urban areas in the US that acted as an affirmation of what was said, kind of a hipper “you bet.” Cameo developed a character around the saying and wrote the lyrics about what he would say. They called the character “Vicious” and had him take out his frustrations on rappers who delve into psychodrama when they should be creating music you can dance to: “Give us music, we can that, we need to dance. We don’t need that type of psychological romance.”

The most common use of “word up” is as an affirmation of something. It is typically not used in formal settings, such as the workplace, weddings, and dinner parties. On the other hand, it is particularly popular among young people, usually in universities or casual gatherings. A specific example of the usage of the term might be someone saying “word up” in response to, “I think this music band is the best.” The person saying the idiom usually nods as he or she says it.

As a greeting, “word up” is not as common as “hello,” “how are you,” or “what’s up” in most places. Like when using the term as an agreement, people saying it as a greeting typically nod, smile, or both when saying it to another person. Again, it is generally not used in formal settings, except when the people know each other well.

Sometimes “word up” is not meant as an affirmation or greeting, but instead as a simple “I’m listening” or “I hear you.” A person might say this to an acquaintance as assurance that he or she is listening. It does not necessarily mean the person agrees with what the acquaintance is saying. Like many slang terms, “word up” can mean various things based on the region. It can start out meaning one thing, but gradually mean another thing as years go by.

SO, are words important – WORD UP!

Our obsession with zodiacs and personalities along with the immaculate neural network proves the study of emotions and us spiritual warriors are the prize and the reason we exist and anything else too.

We are literally -all that IS- to include ALL THAT came b4, after, limit and no limit, definable and undefinable.

… words prove it

Words are our map to ourselves – WORD UP!

The razor – It was Sir William Hamilton who christened “Ockham’s razor” in 1852.

It is also known as the law of parsimony, or the law of economy, rendered in Latin as lex parsimoniae.

The man-made elements with atomic weights from 113 to 118 are named ununtrium, ununquadium, ununpentium, ununhexium, ununseptium, ununoctium and are hybrids concocted from the Latin unus (“one”), various Greek numbers and the standard Latinate suffix -ium.

These no flavor names then mean “one-one-three-ium,” “one-one-four-ium,” “one-one-five-ium,” etc. Some words are exciting and flavorful, others bland and forgettable. Each incredibly influential to emotion, action, policy, outcomes.

MEDUSA got americium (America) and europium for (Europe), and several named after countries. France appears in the periodic table twice – francium is obvious but there’s also gallium (from Gallia, Latin for Gaul). Polonium is clearly named for Poland, but it’s a little harder to spot Russia in ruthenium (from medieval Latin, Ruthenia).

We get chlorine (Greek chloros, “yellowish-green”), cesium (Latin caesius, “sky-blue”), and indium because it’s indigo blue. But what’s up with chromium? It’s from the Greek chroma, “color.” Sure, it’s got a color but which one (it is actually named thus because its compounds come in several different colors)?

We might raise a similar objection to osmium, from Greek osme (“odor”) . Is it, for instance a pleasant odor or foul (Smithson Tennant, who named this element, characterized the odor as “pungent and peculiar”)? No such question arises with bromine. It is from the Greek bromos, “stench”.

All in all, being as precise as possible -(word!)- in naming or categorizing seems to be left to an elite few …

… and the majority of us play along toddler/sandbox style. Thus becoming subjects of those who claim superiority. A chain of events in the world of ‘everyday wordplay’ – WORD UP!

The name ‘prometheum’ (symbol Pm) for element 61 after Prometheus – He stole fire from heaven for the benefit of mankind… This name…symbolizes the dramatic way in which the element may be produced in quantity as a result of man’s harnessing of the energy of nuclear fission.”

Funny today we have the 6/1 committees all over crying for a fire red head man who tried to give fire to humanity.

No Mistake? – WORD UP!

Greek-derived suffix –gen means “begetter of” so the other –gen elements are easy to understand. When it burns, hydrogen forms water (Greek hydros) hence hydro-gen (“begetter of water”). Similarly oxygen reacts with metals to form acidic oxides (Greek oxy-, “sharp, sour”). So we were hardly surprised to discover that nitrogen is named for its ability to “beget” nitre. What did surprise us was the identity of nitre. Or should we say identities?

Below shows examples of how we allow any and many words to trail away from their intended use and meaning which changes our ideas, concepts, policy and actions, thus changing ours and other’s outcomes. Are words important? – WORD UP! Below mirrored from http://takeourword.com/TOW209/page1.html:

Nitre has something of a split personality. Its usual meaning “potassium nitrate,” also called saltpeter, but the original meaning of nitre was “naturally occurring sodium carbonate,” a mineral compound which has no connection to nitrogen whatever. It does, however, have the alternative name of natron and this, presumably is where the confusion with nitre crept in.

Note that natron is a sodium compound. This helps explain why the chemical symbol for sodium is Na, not So. The word sodium was invented by the English chemist Michael Faraday who extracted the element from soda.

Saltpeter (or saltpetre in the British spelling) is one of those fascinating words which carry evidence of a misunderstanding. In Middle English it was salpetre (presumably from medieval Latin sal petrae or “salt of stone”) but the first syllable of this colorless crystalline substance was just too similar to salt for English-speakers to leave undefiled.

One of the simplest nitrogen-containing substances is ammonia, which gets its name from the main ingredient in smelling salts – sal ammoniac. (Funny, you’d think it would be the other way around, wouldn’t you?) Sal ammoniac gets its name from an area of Lybia called Ammonia (Latin, “salt of Ammonia” – note that capital letter). The region took its name from a famous temple of Jupiter Ammon – a syncretic deity who combined aspects of the Roman Jupiter and the AmmoniteEgyptian god Ammon. The substance ammonia (not the place Ammonia) was also known as spirits of hartshorn as it was once distilled from the hoofs and horns of animals. It is a strong alkali and, due to its origins was known as animal alkali as distinct from vegetable alkali (potash) and from mineral alkali (soda).

This brings us to the term alkali itself. From the Arabic al-kali “the ashes” it neatly parallels the English word potash (literally “ashes from a pot”). Again we see the origin of a disparity between the name of an element (potassium, from potash) and its symbol – in this case K, from kali (“ashes”).

And before we leave the Egyptian god Ammon, we should mention another etymological curiosity. You see, according to Egyptian belief, Ammon had the body of a man but the head of a ram. And when the inhabitants of ancient North Africa found certain fossils which curled in a flat spiral they said that they were the discarded horns of the god Ammon. For that matter, so do we, in a manner of speaking. We call them ammonites. Is that how we humans got here?

Below mirrored from https://www.gotquestions.org/Ammonites.html:
The Ammonites were a pagan people who worshiped the gods Milcom and Molech. God commanded the Israelites not to marry these pagans, because intermarriage would lead the Israelites to worship false gods. Solomon disobeyed and married Naamah the Ammonite (1 Kings 14:21), and, as God had warned, he was drawn into idolatry (1 Kings 11:1-8). Molech was a fire-god with the face of a calf; his images had arms outstretched to receive the babies who were sacrificed to him. Like their god, the Ammonites were cruel. When Nahash the Ammonite was asked for terms of a treaty (1 Samuel 11:2), he proposed gouging out the right eye of each Israelite man. Amos 1:13 says that the Ammonites would rip open pregnant women in the territories they conquered.
