  • Alethiology 
/əˌliːθɪˈɒlədʒi/

Alethiology (n.) [unaccountable]: Also known as alethology, it is the study of aletheia, literally meaning the study of truth. The word, though, can be more accurately translated as the study of the nature of truth; the part of logic or philosophy which deals with the nature of truth.

• Alethiology (logic): The branch of logic dealing with truth and error.

The origin of Alethiology is from Ancient Greek ἀλήθεια (alḗtheia, “truth”) + -λογία (-logía). As an uncommon expression for the doctrine of truth, the term was notably used by British diplomat, antiquarian, archaeologist, and vulcanologist Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803) in his philosophic writings, to denote that part of logic which treats of the nature of truth and error, and of the rules for their discrimination. However, it was Lambert who first used it in his New Organon in 1764.


It is sometimes argued that alethiology is synonymous with epistemology — the study of knowledge — and that dividing the two is mere semantics. Other times a distinction is made between the two: while epistemology is the study of knowledge and its acquisition, alethiology is specifically concerned with the nature of truth, which is only one of many areas included in epistemology.

  • This post was inspired by a couple of things.....the first was @will.odg IG stories about the depth of some conversations on diversity and inclusion and the second was a LinkedIn article (see slide 7) @halima_begum_east_london posted on a few weeks ago, which included the following quote:

“When we talk numbers, we are talking about diversity and inclusion. That quickly become a shield and all too often an excuse. It is instead a conversation about power and privilege. By power and privilege, we mean the ability of organisations and individuals to set the agenda and seeing a shift in the power”.

That quote neatly summed up how I feel about Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) programs. I do believe these conversations and programs are much needed, but they become meaningless unless we also address the real problems of power/privilege and lack of access/equity for BIPOC employees. 

I’d encourage everyone who’s having discussions about D&I to ensure they are also tackling the root causes of discrimination in their organisations. Ignoring those issues runs the risk of your D&I programs ending up a well-meaning sham.

  • Amazing how much of Malta’s Silent City's original architecture has been preserved! As the oldest city on the island, Mdina's narrow alleys indeed tell tales of centuries of history!⁣
⁣
If you've been to Malta before, you most probably noticed that not only its cuisine but also its language has been marked quite much by the Arab rule on Malta.⁣
⁣
The Arabs were officially expelled from Malta in 1250 but the name Mdina, which derives from the Arabic word "medina" meaning "city", survived up to today. Yeah, actually although the city was referred to as "Civitas" (Latin for "city") or "Citta Notabile" ("the noble city") after the Arabic legacy.📍Mdina, Malta 🇲🇹⁣

  • Morning spent with a giant swallowtail butterfly (Papilio cresphontes) that unfortunately was on its last leg.
 
In honor of it, I thought I’d share a little about different orders of winged insects. Fittingly, most tell you they’re winged right in the name, using ptera (πτερά), Greek for wing. Think pterodactyl, as in the winged-finger dinosaur. But what word it’s paired with tells you even more about the insect’s wing characteristics.
 
Here are the orders of a handful of winged insects:
 
🐞 Coleoptera (sheath-winged): beetles
🌿 Dermaptera (skin-winged): earwigs
🦟 Diptera (two-winged): flies and mosquitoes
🌿 Hemiptera (half-winged): cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, and shield bugs
🐝🐜 Hymenoptera (membrane-winged): bees, ants, and wasps
🌿 Isoptera (equal-winged): termites
🦋 Lepidoptera (scale-winged): moths and butterflies
🦗 Orthoptera (straight-winged): grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets

  • MIDRIFF: Cognate with Old Frisian ‘midhrif; < the Germanic base of “mid” (adjective) + the Germanic base of Old English ‘hrif’ belly (cognate with Old Frisian ‘href, hrif,’ Old Saxon ‘ref,’ Old High German ‘href’ < the Indo-European base of classical Latin ‘corpus.’ Originally referring to the diaphragm, the meaning of “the front of the body between the chest and the waist” started to be used in the 19th and 20th centuries.

  • Grand rising! Y’all know i always share this! Spelling is a spell. Look into etymology the break down of the english language. We don’t mourn waking up so why do we say morning? This is why i say grand rising! It’s sets the intent for the day. It’s just like manifesting, watch the words you think and speak or it’ll unfold in front of you. #grandrising #spell #spelling #manifest #morning #etymology ✨✨✨🔮🔮🔮💯💯💯

  • Сыр – CHEESE – любят все!?❤️ Я так просто обожаю, а вы?)
Итак, CHEESE пришло в Английский  не сразу. Как прекрасно, что теперь оно есть! Такое лаконичное😁👌
⠀
Хотя CHEESE - неисчисляемое, всё же можно посчитать его, разделив на кусочки)
⠀
A HEAD of cheese – головка сыра.
A PIECE of cheese – кусок сыра.
A SLICE of cheese – тонкий ломтик сыра (или слайс, как уже говорят – слайсы = что-то вроде чипсов, такие же тонкие).
⠀
Остались вопросы по теме CHEESE – you are welcome! 🤗Write them under this video!
See you soon😘

  • What are you writing into your future... Monday's have a way of making us reflect... how do you express this? 

I have fallen in love with writing things out, getting everything out on paper. Flowing with pen and paper. 

Expressing thru words can be very specific did you know there is a word to express jusy about everything. Etymology has been so eye opening to explore.. the origin of words and human self expression fascinates me.

Intention: "Be impeccable with your words"

  • Geneviève est mon 3eme prénom. Celui de la marraine de mon père. Une femme incroyablement libre, gentille et drôle qui conduisait une Déesse (!) façon rallye. 
C'est cette dame.
Connaître l'origine de son ou ses prénoms donne des clefs. 
Pourquoi vos parents ont choisi ce prénom là ? 
Quel est son étymologie ?
Proche de Guenièvre et de l'imaginaire celtique, je suis heureuse de ce prénom pour mon travail autour de la connaissance de soi. 
Comment tu t'appelles ? :)

  • The #etymology of opingë according to Matzinger. Since it's origin is Proto-Albanian we can safely tell that it entered the Slavic languages via early medieval Albanian during the Slavic Invasions meaning albanian was already being spoken in the Balkans at the time. Weird how even one shoe can easily prove our theory right, unlike our neighbours...

  • My husband was WRONG‼️😲⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When we first began our homeschool journey one of the things I mentioned to my husband was that our daughter needed to know how to use a dictionary and look up words correctly.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
He said and I quote, "For what that's what she has the internet for" 😲⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Fast forward a few years and we have a total of 5 different dictionaries in our home that our children use. 😲⁠⠀
⁠⠀
He was wrong and even admitted to it!!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Did you know that words change sooooo much over the years that they eventually those their original meanings?🤔 ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Well, etymology is just as important as vocabulary when it comes to teaching our children. It is the history/origin of words and where they come from.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Why is this important you ask⁉️🤔⁠⠀
⁠⠀
✏️Expand vocabulary⁠⠀
✏️Know and understand the language we are speaking, reading, and writing⁠⠀
✏️A clear understanding of words⁠⠀
✏️which makes us better communicators⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you teach your children etymology⁉️ Would you teach them etymology⁉️⁠⠀

  • Hailing from the early 12th century, onion comes from the Anglo-French word ‘union’ and the Old French ‘oignon’ or ‘oingnon’. Both words originally derived from the Latin ‘unionem’, meaning oneness and unity, reflecting the closely layered parts of an onion.

...

“A union is something that is indivisible and which, if taken apart, is destroyed in the process, like an onion.”

union (n.) 
early 15c., “action of joining one thing to another,” from French union (12c.), from Latin unionem, “oneness, unity, a uniting,” also in Latin meaning “a single pearl or onion.”

  • Ey-up. Pitstop in the Yorkshire Dales en route to Scotland. The entertaining etymology of the podcast #SomethingRhymeswithPurple took the edge off our 5-hour drive. My two new favourite words are ‘crambazzled’ (prematurely aged from excess drinking, in old Yorkshire speak) and ‘matutinal’ (of the morning, esp those annoyingly chirpy first thing). Both could be said of me depending on the day ☀️☀️☀️ #Summer2020 #Yorkshire #YorkshireDales #Etymology #Language #UpNorth #SuzieDent #UK #staycation #Iphone #vsco #mytinyatlas

U.S. state, formerly a Spanish colony, probably from Spanish 𝘗𝘢𝘴𝘤𝘶𝘢 𝘧𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘢, literally "flowering Easter," a Spanish name for Palm Sunday, and so named because the peninsula was discovered on that day (March 20, 1513) by the expedition of Spanish explorer Ponce de León. From Latin 𝘧𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘶𝘴 "flowery, in bloom.”

“What’s in a name?” When a pining Juliet made her famous speech in Romeo and Juliet, she may have been thinking of the field of onomastics. Onomastics is the branch of linguistics that deals with the study of names. The origins and usage of our surnames reveal extraordinary insights into the history and culture of different societies.”
.
“According to legend, surnames were first used in China in 2852 BC to aid the collection of census information. In Western Europe, the use of surnames became more common in the Middle Ages. The continent’s population grew larger, creating a greater need for last names to tell people apart.”

“In general, the etymologies of surnames fall into five different categories: occupational, personal description, toponymic (from a place name), patronymic (from the name of a father or ancestor) and names signifying patronage.”
