Word The term word may refer to a spoken word or to a written word, or sometimes to the abstract concept behind either. Spoken words are made up of units of sound called phonemes, and written words of symbols called graphemes, such as the letters of the English alphabet. Definitions[edit] Semantic definition[edit] Leonard Bloomfield introduced the concept of "Minimal Free Forms" in 1926. Some semanticists have put forward a theory of so-called semantic primitives or semantic primes, indefinable words representing fundamental concepts that are intuitively meaningful. Features[edit] Word boundaries[edit] The task of defining what constitutes a "word" involves determining where one word ends and another word begins—in other words, identifying word boundaries. Orthography[edit] Not all languages delimit words expressly. Sometimes, languages which are extremely close grammatically will consider the same order of words in different ways. Morphology[edit] Letters and words Philosophy[edit] Classes[edit]

Photo Quoto: Sayings and Quotations Make A Cheap &Easy Solar USB Charger With An Altoids Tin : TreeHugger - StumbleUpon Photos by Joshua Zimmerman The craftster behind the very popular $3 solar-powered emergency radio is back with a new awesome project: a cheap solar battery charger with a USB plug. Zimmerman wrote, saying that he saw a lot of small solar powered chargers being talked about over Earth Day, but there was a big problem: "They're all quite nice, but also quite expensive. So, he came up with his own, using one of our favorite reusable items -- the ever wonderful Altoids tin.

Zimmerman states, "The central brain of our project is a DC to USB converter circuit. It can be done with a Minty Boost kit, a premade circuit off of ebay, or grabbing one from a cheap USB charger.

printer Who came up with the idea that we are supposed to drink orange juice at breakfast? And why, if oatmeal is so good for us, do we eat that only in the morning as well?
