APRIL WRITE 2013 – Day 27 – LANGUAGE

Posted on

Welcome to day 27 of the April Write 2013: a new era begins

Adam Rowland here again for the third and final time in 2013.

For those with a penchant for numbers, we’re 90% of the way through this year’s April Write. For those with a predilection for words – which I dare say is all of you – then this day is for you!

Today’s theme is all about language, and I have titled my piece ‘Lexicon’.

A lexicon comprises all a language’s words, and is used together with a language’s grammatical rules; together, the lexicon and grammar comprise the language.

Language is very important to me, as I am sure it is to you. You can bend it, shape it, even beat it up and it will still bend to your every future whim. It can make people laugh, cry; it can even incite violence and start wars. It is all powerful – and potentially very dangerous.

Please feel free to explore this theme in any way that is meaningful to you.

I look forward to reading your respective – and respectable – pieces.

Cheers,
Adam

Lexicon


Synonyms and antonyms are drawn together to form ironic and sardonic statements of sincerity.
Similarly charged nouns and pronouns subtly enjoy its repulsion.
Translucent rambunctious adjectives dance on the page agitatedly.
Verbs run and dance and sing.
Figurative incursions of speech violate the norm.
The comma baulks.
The full stop cannot come soon enough.

THE APRIL WRITE 2012 – POETS OLYMPIAD – DAY 30 – WORD POWER FINALE

Posted on

Monday 30th April is our finale but in order to write your last piece, you need the words which the group has selected.

For those who want to take part in the live finale (to listen or to share work) it will start from 10pm GMT/BST via Skype (add me ‘AngeeEdgar’). We will be able to conversate and share poetry with those we have only type-talked to during the month. Or you can enable the chat function in our Facebook Group. if you don’t have access to Skype.

I do hope you will join in, if only to listen and chat or IM (as Skype has that function too) for those without a microphone, you can listen to the rest of us and type your responses). I envision it to end around midnight but who knows we might have such a great time we carry on for a few more hours! If you are unavailable when I call out to the group at 10pm UK time, as soon as you are able to join us you can call me – just make sure you have added me on Skype and I have accepted, then you can be added to the group conversation! It really is easy!
