Discussion with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today was sparked by:
* The Meaning of Liff which was compiled by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd who decided:
there are many hundreds of common experiences, feelings, situations and even objects which we all know and recognize, but for which no words exist.
On the other hand, the world is littered with thousands of spare words which spend their time doing nothing but loafing about on signposts pointing at places.
Our job, as we see it, is to get these words down off the signposts and into the mouths of babes and sucklings and so on, where they can start earning their keep in everyday conversation and make a more positive contribution to society.
Liff, a hamlet near Dundee (,y father’s birth place) in Angus, Scotland, is defined by Adams and Lloyd as:
A book, the contents of which are totally belied by its cover. For instance, any book the dust jacket of which ears the words, ‘This book will change your life’.
