or Difficult Questions E-mailed to Me:
One unusual advantage to
operating a website like this one is that people from all
over the world send me e-mails in response to the materials
online. Some of it is favorable
commentary, some of it involves difficult
erudite questions, and some of it is
just plain strange. I include a sampler below, with
names withheld to protect the guilty:
Erudite Questions People Have Sent Me:
- Hello, Is there a literary
term that means a character's name corresponds to the character's
physical characteristics and/or personality traits?
- Do you
know of a particular author of a rhetorical text who
has applied "trope" to aporia?
Thanking you in advance for your response.
- I do have several questions
about the Shijing which your site did not answer,
and while I hesitate to disturb you with them, I imagine
that your students may have the same queries, so
you might wish to add this information to the page. 1.
You mention Commentator Mao, without giving a date or dynasty
for him. Would you care to elaborate slightly, or perhaps
mention the other Han schools, and why they came about?
I have read (in the preface to Karlgren's Book of Odes)
that there were four textual traditions . . . the Mao, Han,
Lu and Tsung schools, with slight divergences in texts,
and that the traditionally accepted version is the Mao.
But I have not found any additional info on them. 2. Do
you have any opinions on the quality of the translations
by Karlgren, Legge, and Xu Yuanchong?
- Do you suppose that meiosis
and litotes originate in the same part of Choamsky-ian
grammatical deep structure?
and Just Plain Strange Questions People Have Sent Me:
- Can you please tell if
I am correct in assuming that the English language was
perfected to an actual written
languange format by the Cathoilc Church in Rome, Vatican
City definitely before Christ. They also did not want to
let anyone know about it, or thier hand in the revisions
over the centuries. There has never been an actual language
of English, until the Church needed to disguise certain
knowledge that may affect thier leadership and power as
one of the richest, most organized syndicates of this world.
I fully understand that I am taking great liberty with
the freedom of speech that I am allowed as my human right.
I can show you a million different ways that the language
was designed with destructive religious purpose. I am very
respectful of the late pontif, John Paul, and know that
he also understood the many voices of power that the Catholic
Church holds, and thier unwillingness to ask God for the
forgiveness that they need to. They had thier chances,
through som e very incredible Saints, and they hid behind
the viels of others kindness's and grace. They cannot however,
fool the Almighty Lord of Lords, King of Kings, God Himself.
That people need to respect certain doctrines of the Catholic
Church as with any other church of the world, there are
certain wrongs that must be righted. Over the centuries,
you can understand that these destructuctive choices have
been made for control, for persecution, for hiding behind
the mask of death and destructions. They have hidden away
much of the Holiness in Christ, adn the ancient scrolls
that Jesus wrote Himself are carefully secreted within
the depths of the Church basement's vaults and catacombs.
I must apologize for my boldness, but I am a humble person,
with nothing but my Love for God to carry me. I thank you
in advance if you can get any information on the questions
and theology theory I put forth. Please note that I do
not have anything other than the interest of God'sTruth
and Honor for t eh Valour of the Saints who lost thier
earthly lives because they knew the Truth. Thank
You Very Much
