The Word is a linguistic exploration. It was inspired by a book called Lost In Translation by Ella Frances Sanders. The book focuses on words found throughout the world and in different cultures that define and express universal human ideas, concepts, experiences and habits. In some cultures there are words that cannot be defined outside of that specific language or cultural lens. This is what we’re after. The Word keeps us on our toes with a watchful eye to recognize mundane instances spread across the human experience and our own peculiar behavior.
And now it’s our turn to bring you The Word. Home for The Word and all that it dictates. Its ability to form abstract ideas into concrete understanding by giving meaning to the noise we make (some more than others) from our sound holes.
Have any ideas for The Word? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
