Neruda: I Like For You To Be Still (Glenn Close)





I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not touch you
It seems as though your eyes had flown away
And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth
As all things are filled with my soul
You emerge from the things
Filled with my soul
You are like my soul
A butterfly of dream
And you are like the word: Melancholy

I like for you to be still
And you seem far away
It sounds as though you are lamenting
A butterfly cooing like a dove
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not reach you
Let me come to be still in your silence
And let me talk to you with your silence
That is bright as a lamp
Simple, as a ring
You are like the night
With its stillness and constellations
Your silence is that of a star
As remote and candid

I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
Distant and full of sorrow
So you would've died
One word then, One smile is enough
And I'm happy;
Happy that it's not true

Mexico acknowledges 2nd Mayan reference to 2012

 Source 
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.
Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.
But the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement that there is in fact another apparent reference to the date at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. The inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick. Comalcalco is unusual among Mayan temples in that it was constructed of bricks.
Arturo Mendez, a spokesman for the institute, said the fragment of inscription had been discovered years ago and has been subject to thorough study. It is not on display and is being kept in storage at the institute.
The "Comalcalco Brick," as the second fragment is known, has been discussed by experts in some online forums. Many still doubt that it is a definite reference to Dec. 21, 2012 or Dec. 23, 2012, the dates cited by proponents of the theory as the possible end of the world.
"Some have proposed it as another reference to 2012, but I remain rather unconvinced," David Stuart, a specialist in Mayan epigraphy at the University of Texas at Austin, said in a message to The Associated Press.
Stuart said the date inscribed on the brick "'is a Calendar Round,' a combination of a day and month position that will repeat every 52 years."
The brick date does coincide with the end of the 13th Baktun; Baktuns were roughly 394-year periods and 13 was a significant, sacred number for the Mayas. The Mayan Long Count calendar begins in 3114 B.C., and the 13th Baktun ends around Dec. 21, 2012.
But the date on the brick could also correspond to similar dates in the past, Stuart said.
"There's no reason it couldn't be also a date in ancient times, describing some important historical event in the Classic period. In fact, the third glyph on the brick seems to read as the verb huli, "he/she/it arrives."
"There's no future tense marking (unlike the Tortuguero phrase), which in my mind points more to the Comalcalco date being more historical that prophetic," Stuart wrote.
Both inscriptions — the Tortuguero tablet and the Comalcalco brick — were probably carved about 1,300 years ago and both are cryptic in some ways.
The Tortuguero inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation.
However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible, though some read the last eroded glyphs as perhaps saying, "He will descend from the sky."
The Comalcalco brick is also odd in that the molded or inscribed faces of the bricks were probably laid facing inward or covered with stucco, suggesting they were not meant to be seen.
The Institute of Anthropology and History has long said rumors of a world-ending or world-changing event in late December 2012 are a Westernized misinterpretation of Mayan calendars.
The institute repeated Thursday that "western messianic thought has twisted the cosmovision of ancient civilizations like the Maya."
The institute's experts say the Mayas saw time as a series of cycles that began and ended with regularity, but with nothing apocalyptic at the end of a given cycle.
Given the strength of Internet rumors about impending disaster in 2012, the institute is organizing a special round table of 60 Mayan experts next week at the archaeological site of Palenque, in southern Mexico, to "dispel some of the doubts about the end of one era and the beginning of another, in the Mayan Long Count calendar."

Big words

Intelligent Words
by Paulo P Sanchez

Long and exotic words (like defenestration or sesquipedalian) are often more fascinating than useful. By comparison, these words can enrich conversations without sounding ridiculous.

Paradigm

Definition: a theory or a group of ideas about how something should be done, made, or thought about

Words It Might Replace: idea, theory, concept

Example:

"Pessimists are bemoaning the end of U.S. human spaceflight, but optimists see the next few years as a transition to a new paradigm that will energize commercial ventures and get astronauts beyond Earth orbit for the first time since the Nixon administration." – Alan Boyle, MSNBC.com, July 13, 2011

Paradox

Definition: a statement that seems to be contradictory or opposed to common sense yet is perhaps true

Words It Might Replace: puzzle, surprise

Example:

"Withhold $800 million in military aid, let it go through, or double it – no matter what Washington does it can't escape the paradox that [Pakistan] is its most important ally in the war on terror." – Zachary Fillingham, Geopolitical Monitor, July 11, 2011

Nuance

Definition: a very small difference in color, tone, or meaning

Words It Might Replace: aspect, thing, detail

Example:

"...Research shows that our memory is strongest and lasts the longest when our emotions are heightened. This helps explain why we might remember every nuance of our wedding day or our valedictory speech in college." – Richard Zwolinski, Blogs.PsychCentral.com, July 11, 2011

Dilettante

Definition: a person whose interest in an art or in an area of knowledge is not very deep or serious

Words It Might Replace: dabbler, amateur, hack

Example:

"But compared with Matthew de Abaitua I am a complete dilettante. We camp perhaps once a year, and only in summer, and only in good weather (we cancel if it's wet)." – Tom Fort, Telegraph.co.uk, June 28, 2011

Serendipity

Definition: luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for

Words It Might Replace: luck; chance; good fortune

Example:

"If there is one thing social networks and living in public have facilitated, it's serendipity. Serendipity is a good thing. It's been well documented that people who talk to strangers tend to be luckier, and this also applies to communicating with our existing networks..." – Kaila Colbin, MediaPost.com, July 15, 2011

Euphemism

Definition: a mild or pleasant word or phrase that is used in place of one that is offensive or unpleasant

Words It Might Replace: alternative, "another way of saying"

Example:

"Anyone who's ever lived in a small apartment building full of quirky (usually a euphemism for 'extremely irritating') tenants has probably imagined one of them suddenly found dead or killing somebody else." – Steve Donoghue, Washington Post, July 8, 2011

Dichotomy

Definition: a division into two mutually exclusive or contradictory groups or things

Words It Might Replace: split, division, contrast

Example:

"But ballet, with its built-in dichotomy of gender roles (women alone rise on point, men alone may do the partnering), has a romantic tension that can seem poignant, even tragic." – Alastair Macaulay, New York Times, July 4, 2011

Non sequitur

Definition: a statement that doesn't logically follow from or is not clearly related to anything said before it (literally, 'it does not follow' in Latin)

Words It Might Replace: nonsense, stumper, "huh?"

Example:

"'Russia needs more successful young entrepreneurs, therefore, governors should have more children!' At first it may seem a non-sequitur. But in Russia the joke is obvious, cutting to the heart of a growing source of discontent among the young: routes to professional success are fewer and fewer, while the offspring of top provincial officials and the like do well." – Charles Clover, Financial Times.com, July 11, 2011

English Pronunciation Workout & Mastering Intonation

English Pronunciation Workout & Mastering Intonation
Posted September 27th, 2011 by oggy
There are plenty of aspects of communication in the English language. For illustration we can be taught a good deal about a individual by observing their entire body language. To apply English pronunciation gives clarity to individual speech seems. Intonation refers to the rhythm and movement of the English language and consists of the ideas of stress and anxiety and speech fee.
It has been clearly stated by a large number of speech and linguistics scientists that at least 70% of our concept is conveyed to the listener by the intonation (the way we say it) we use. Many most people who speak English as a 2nd language don’t acknowledge how significant the rhythm and circulation of the English language is to that means. To know English accent is not only about pronunciation, it is also about utilizing correct intonation designs.
When appropriate intonation patterns are used although you apply English pronunciation, the listener understands the concept more quickly and can react substantially a lot more immediately. If the accurate pattern is not put to use, the listener wants a great deal additional time to figure out the concept. Communication can turn out to be irritating for both equally the speaker and listener.
An American accent training method will assist you outline and practice the most significant elements of intonation: pitch and emotional tension. American pronunciation teaching can support you hear the psychological highs and lows of pitch and anxiety and it will help to make improvements to English accent.
It usually requires time to fulling integrate all the parts of intonation, but it is really worth all your efforts as you apply English pronunciation. Plenty of college students take edge of understanding English pronunciation via the internet despite the fact that utilizing an accent coach. This is the most suitable scenario, mainly because the verbal feedback from your speech coach can support you acquire very good apply procedures to allow advance English speaking ability.
The accent coach initially presents an examination of the client’s speech. This examination reveals exactly how their pronunciation varies from common American English and also identifies particular parts for focus. The system is customized and has distinctive emphasis on:
. Pronunciation

When You Love Someone




WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE
by Bryan Adams

When you love someone,
You'll do anything.
You'll do all the crazy things
That you can't explain.
You'll shoot the moon,
Put out the sun,
When you love someone.

You'll deny the truth,
Believe a lie.
There'll be times
That you'll believe you can really fly.
But your lonely nights
Have just begun,
When you love someone.

When you love someone,
You'll feel it deep inside
And nothing else
Can ever change your mind.
When you want someone,
When you need someone,
When you need someone...

When you love someone,
You'll sacrifice.
You'd give everything you got
And you won't think it twice.
You'd risk it all,
No matter what my come,
When you love someone.
You'll shoot the moon,
Put out the sun,
When you love someone.
CUANDO AMES A ALGUIEN
por Bryan Adams

Cuando ames a alguien,
Harás cualquier cosa.
Harás todas las cosas locas
Que no puedes explicar.
Dispararás a la luna,
Apagarás el sol,
Cuando ames a alguien.

Negarás la verdad,
Creerás una mentira.
Habrá veces que creerás
Que realmente puedes volar.
Pero tus noches solitarias
Recién han comenzado,
Cuando ames a alguien.

Cuando ames a alguien,
Lo sentirás muy adentro
Y ninguna otra cosa
Puede cambiar tu mente.
Cuando quieres a alguien,
Cuando necesitas a alguien,
Cuando necesitas a alguien...

Cuando ames a alguien,
Te sacrificarás.
Darías todo lo que tienes
Y no lo pensarás dos veces.
Lo arriesgarías todo,
Sin importar lo que pueda suceder,
Cuando ames a alguien.
Dispararás a la luna,
Apagarás el sol,
Cuando ames a alguien.

The oo sound

the "'oo" spelling of the words "foot" and "soon"


Hi again, and welcome back to Seattle Learning Academy's American English pronunciation podcast. My name is Mandy, and this is our 140th episode.

I talked a bit about the other u sound in our last podcast about the word sure. The other u sounds like (other u) and is the vowel sound in the word put. Can you hear it? (Other u), put.

The other u is tricky because it doesn't have any vowel spelling of its own. It can obviously be spelled u, as in the word put, but it can also be spelled oo as in the word foot. Can you hear the rhyme between put and foot, put, foot.

The more common pronunciation for the oo spelling is the oo sound, as in the word soon. The word shoot (s-h-o-o-t) is also pronounced with the oo sound. Notice that the word shoot does not rhyme with the word foot, shoot, foot.

Let's talk a little bit about how these two sounds are different. The oo sound is usually easier to start with because it is a more common sound. Listen to the sound: (oo sound). The major characteristic of this sound is that my lips are brought into a small circle. In addition, the back of the tongue raised to a high position and sides of the tongue touch the top teeth at the back of the mouth. Listen to the sound again: (oo sound).

The other u sound, (other u), has relaxed lips. The inside of the mouth is similar to the oo sound. My tongue relaxes a little more and the back of the tongue drops some, but those details are really minor compared with the drastically different shape of my lips. Most of my students learn to create a perfect other u sound simply by staring with the oo sound, and then relaxing the lips.

Listen to both sounds, I'll say the oo sound first, then the other u sound (oo sound, other u, oo sound, other u).

So, let's get back to the oo spelling for these sounds. Between these two pronunciations (other u) and (oo sound), the oo sound is much more common.

I'm going to say a word spelled oo, and I want you to try to tell if it's the oo sound or the other u sound. Ready?

tooth
cook
good
food
school

Those were:

tooth, oo sound
cook, other u
good, other u
food, oo sound
school, oo sound

How did you do? Pretty good?

Here's a little more practice. I'm going to say the five most frequently used words spelled oo for each pronunciation. I am going to say the words pronounced with the oo sound first:

school
too
room
food
choose

And here are the top five other u words:

good
book
look
foot
cook

If you would like to see more high-frequency words, I've added an exercise to the lessons for those sounds to help you out. The lessons are free to everyone, and have all the common spellings for each sound of English as well as common non-phonetic words. The exercises provide additional practice for each sound. Only people who subscribe to Pronuncian.com have access to the exercises. That's how we pay our bills and are able to keep creating more content like these free podcasts, so please consider joining.

Raise vs. Rise

Raise vs. Rise
Paulo P Sanchez | September 21, 2011 at 3:27 pm | URL: http://wp.me/pMRGn-1pX
When used as a verb they both have the same general meaning of "to move upwards", the main difference is that rise is an intransitive verb (it does not take an object), while raise is a transitive verb (it requires an object):

As you can see from these examples, (nobody is pushing up the sun!), whereas (Mary moved her hand upwards/The government make laws to increase taxes).

rise (v) Something rises by itself

For example:-
The sun rises in the east.
The chairman always rises to the occasion.
I will rise tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. to walk the dog.
Rise is an irregular verb: rise / rose / risen


raise (v) Something else is needed to raise something.

For example:-
Lynne raised her hand.
The government is going to raise taxes.
They can't raise the Titanic.
Raise is a regular verb: raise / raised / raised

Heteronyms

What are heteronyms?

Heteronyms are words that are spelled identically but have different meanings when pronounced differently. For example:

Lead, pronounced LEED, means to guide. However, lead, pronounced LED, means a metallic element.

Compare heteronyms to homographs, homophones, and homonyms.

Homographs are words that are spelled the same but differ in meaning, derivation, or pronunciation. Homophones are words that are pronounced the same but differ in meaning, derivation, or spelling. Homonyms are words that are spelled and pronounced the same but have different meanings. There is overlap among these categories.

Heteronyms are specific types of homographs in which the different pronunciations are associated with different meanings. Many heteronyms are the result of one pronunciation being a verb and another being a noun.

Well, let's see what we have!

Our lists of heteronyms are shown below. We are limiting ourselves to words commonly used in the English language. Some of our heteronyms have completely different meanings while others have somewhat related meanings. (We also list words that have nearly the same meanings.) We also are including heteronyms in which at least one of the words is a foreign word (as long as it is commonly used in English).

Not every meaning of every word is given. The numbers after the definitions indicate the source of the heteronym; see the Acknowledgments.
