I accept that money is definitively "most important", currently.
The first thing I look into is my association of the word important with the word necessary and any implications as to my own application of SELF HERE.

Beyond that my 'posturing' will be considered purpose and application as I review this interaction.
I agree and the point has been demonstrated in this interaction.Cathy wrote:This quote says it best and I agree.Quoted from a post on the 'Official Destonian Forum'Language and all of its annoying specifics and intricacies are basically just sitting in your brain, differing from slight to not-so-slight ways from brain to brain, ready to be accessed whether immediately or, well, not immediately.
How (pronunciation, slang, descriptive words, etc...language, period - and this goes for writings (typos, etc.) as well) is not attention worthy, it's a distraction at best...look further, past the words, and hear what is being communicated to you, and then understand why it is being communicated to you. I wouldn't waste time on visuals either, yet another distraction. Cut the distractions out and understanding will increase probably tenfold.
"Association" is something I am currently considering after discovering from this interaction that rather than applying words specifically or definitively as claimed I am associating them and in that their definitive value appears to be secondary or even inconsequential.
The point made by Marlen,
is relevant in my current experience and I am finding specifying through "emphasis on grammar" important to be completely understood in what one is stating.Marlen wrote: I do place emphasis on grammar, proper writing and spelling words as this is part of what an actual standard education should provide as what's best for all. To me it's not only 'pictures' but at the moment words carry the ways in which we present ourselves to the world and spelling, grammar, syntax and the corrections we walk through in the forums for example, has been of great support for me in developing my English as well as extending this point to my own language in the Spanish Forum which is actually cool seeing how people are now pushing themselves to write properly and take grammar/ orthography into consideration when sharing themselves.
Again, thank you for the interaction, ESSENTIAL.
