Ever-expanding Language

Without absolute limitations (the "outer" must be obtained thru the "inner"), upon pronouncing conclusions reached (from personal opinion, or the point of some other capability) that one will either speak, or hold back their assumed 'senseless' phrases in their personal biosphere, (dangling off of a planet like a goat's beard). Those "abnormal compulsive motor impulses" that are at one's disposal aren't always factual. The "facts" (without distracting one's embossed speculation), are honest and eye-raising, depending on one's belief-system; whether or not there's proof to consequence their reactions (assuming that most everyone deliberates upon speech/language), and whether the words are suppressed into subaction, there's often nonsensical statements which are often deciphered as "nonsensical" because of the lack of 'listening skills'; and/or, perhaps by the fact that the leading idea is missing, or somehow temporarily thinned. I've always found photography to be thoroughly similar in all progression; imagery as a "form" of Language. Words "appear" from visuals, which is why we are able to "explain", "describe", &c. what we see (as well as what we "hear" [another "form" of Language] and vice-versa), and provide commentary for people's art, whether electronically-assembled or in other various formats.

If you enjoy the "materialistic" language, then Imagining Language: An Anthology By Jed Rasula and Steve McCaffery is for you, and is a must read, in my opinion. Here and Here are some really excellent reviews/examples of/from the book.

From Öyvind Fahlström's Manifest for Concrete Poetry (1953): MANIPULATE the material of language: that is what will justify a label such as concrete. Manipulate not just overall structures: rather begin with the smallest elements, letters, words. Move letters around, as in anagrams. Repeat letters in words; intersperse alien words: gla-ten-dly; alien letters: aacatioaoana for action; explore children's secret code language; vowel glides: gleaiouwdly. And of course "lettristic," newly invented words. Abbreviationmania to coin neologisms, exactly as in everyday language - we already have Lawleares. It is always a matter of reshaping the material and not allowing oneself to be reshaped by it.
