RESILIENT

Postby tormod » 21 Feb 2017, 20:02

Living words: resilient

Current allocation: I would not know this word from before. it is quite new to me.

dictionary deffinition:
(of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

(of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.
Etymology:
1640s, "springing back," from Latin resilientem "inclined to leap or spring back," present participle of resilire (see resilience). Figuratively, of persons, from 1830. Related: Resiliently.

Sounding of word:

i am being silly again that is what i meant
again there is a silly with
something silly appears one more time

Polarity
Negative: it sounds very like mathematic
Positive: it is like a insurance of its quality. it is a good thing - also to be silly sometimes.


Creative writing:
again i am laughing. again i am breaking my back on laughter. i laugh myself to death
he read something silly and he ended/died (laugh himself to death)

New definition: dare to bend and curve/change to see something new - after action with a detail/being. Like an affection.
