Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • You could drop horror and wonder and add yamma and gooble as nominative markers, but this would be like dropping azure and adding cerulean, dropping jade and adding emerald.

    More Aesthetics

  • I'm just saying that odds are some 'yamma or gooble' will likely prove functional, even if others will not.

    More Aesthetics

  • Why would we all deconstruct and reconstruct our bodies and/or our psyches so completely as to become crab-monkey-flipper-things feeling crab-monkey-flipper-affects of yamma and gooble?

    More Aesthetics

  • The shared psychology would remain, with bolted-on yamma and gooble as little more than superficial differences -- like the dorsal arm or eyes in the back of your head.

    More Aesthetics

  • You can inhibit fear, stimulate joy, and so on, but I don't believe you can replace them with yamma and gooble.

    More Aesthetics

  • As for "shared psychology would remain, with bolted-on yamma and gooble as little more than superficial differences" - this seems to presume that emotions are discrete, doesn't it?

    More Aesthetics

  • So tell me, what is it that makes yamma or gooble impossible?

    More Aesthetics

  • As for the 'socio-cultural functionality' of yamma and gooble, like I said earlier, that strikes me as a 'horseless carriage' argument - "I don't see a role for it now, so there's likely no role for it in the future."

    More Aesthetics

  • Similarly, your scenario offers no reason to assume we'll all rush out to replace our wonder with yamma and our horror with gooble.

    More Aesthetics

  • This actually reinforces my point about yamma and gooble.
