words are mighty source

    • Thanks for dropping by! Indeed, o Steward of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area! And these fields of study will only become more interesting going into the future. Would philology develop a fool-proof method of distinguishing between fake news and words of truth? Would etymologists of the future get the chance to dissect how socmed might have evolved into a veritable wordwar zone when they look at our present times? In the Philippines free-wheeling press and politics, for instance, so-called ‘thought’ leaders are now talking about ‘weaponizing’ and ‘taking back’ the Internet as if words can still be reined in like a djinn out of the bottle πŸ™‚
