Optimism (new), nailing down foreign language terms with ids

Points: ids are expressive and useful. I won’t forget “Fazit” (conclusion) –ein zusammenfassendes Ergebnis. I wonder if “Fazit” is actually short for “zusammenfassend”? It fits, anyway.

The Character of Physical Law, 2nd paragraph

As I have said often before, each word/idea is a problem and a challenge in how to represent it graphically. “Force” I find a very difficult concept to illustrate. “Something that tends to influence the motion of a body” is a definition I have read. But that is very vague and incomplete! If and when I come up with an effective, accurate id for “force” I’ll really think I have something. And I will.

Now I didn’t provide notes for the above. If anyone would like them, write to me.

UM

Continuing my exploratory exercise of rendering of German prefixes into ids.

ZER-

I will, as an exercise, present ids for German prefixes/prepositions–ent-, er-, um-, an-, ab-, zer-, etc. It will be a way for me to gain clarity on the meanings of terms beginning with them.

I’ll start with zer-. I think my id for it is very effective–I LIKE IT! I like what I am doing. Having ids — graphic images–for the terms will help them stick in my mind.

bit

This is a good id improvement that I’m sure I’ll use all of the time. I was in fact working on a project and had the thought “I’ll get it done bit by bit” and this is what popped into mind, this is how my subconscious chose to represent the idea.
