lmc solutions ltd learn master control A Way with Words
Feb 2015
 

Dogs may communicate their desires through body language and expression, but we humans have to rely on words. In an increasingly technological age, words are going through a transition like everything else. The trouble is that when we change the spelling of a word, or render it to its simplest form we run the risk of losing its link to its original denotation and with it the depth of the meaning acquired on the word's journey through time. In my work with children with reading and spelling difficulties, I have learned that much of the problem lies with that disconnect. Once these children learn the truth about the way words work, then they are empowered with the ability to analyse any word to determine its meaning, its structure and it usage. They develop a way with words.

On Side Road

There are roadworks taking place a few streets down from where I live and a sign, put out to advise folk that work is underway, became the topic of conversation in the car the other day. There is a picture of a worker with a shovel implying work is being done and then the wording “ON SIDE ROAD” directly beneath. The discussion centred on what this particular configuration of words might mean.
