conference contribution
posted on 2007-01-01, 00:00 authored by K Simpson Nikakis
With each new object and phenomena humankind discovers, develops or invents, a new set of words must be coined or adopted to describe them. Words are not neutral, carrying with them associations and connotations based on their previous applications and alliances, and augmented by their shapes, sounds, rhymes and rhythms. Many words which are now embedded in lCT's, retain and continue to be colored by these earlier meanings, some of which are drawn from myths.The method of vocabulary-building utilized by ICT's reflects its openness to new ideas and users.
