no, i asked how old is the universe.
YOU wanna take my DESCRIPTION of myself and MAKE IT MEAN "VALIDATE" according to YOUR "INTERPRETATION."
But, YOUR USAGE and "INTERPRETATION" of the word "VALIDATE" is INCORRECT.
Yes, in response to your PICTURE of the white woman and cosmetic doctor, I DESCRIBED myself to you. --But, I did not "VALIDATE" myself, in any way.
to PROVE/CONFIRM/VERIFY/SUBSTANTIATE/make VALID/AUTHENTICATE something.
And my DESCRIPTION of myself does NOT ACCOMPLISH any of those ACTIONS.
It is YOU who wants ME to "VALIDATE/PROVE/AUTHENTICATE/SUBSTANTIABE/VERIFY" my DESCRIPTION of myself TO YOU with a PICTURE.
And FYI: My DEGREE is in ENGLISH. My professional background is in education TEACHING middle and high school ENGLISH.-- My STATE CERTIFICATION in ENGLISH covers grades 6 to 12.
Moreover, yes, many different words in ENGLISH do have different meanings; but those different "meanings" are USED according TO CONTEXT in the reading passage. This is a part of BASIC READING COMPREHENSION.
So, in the spirit of "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND," this is YOUR ENGLISH LESSON FOR TODAY:
There are 3 BASIC CLASSIFICATIONS OF WORDS WITH DIFFERENT MEANINGS/USAGES:
HOMONYMS: words with the SAME SPELLING AND PRONUNCIATION but DIFFERENT MEANINGS.
That secretary can TYPE over 75 w.p.m.
Ignorant, uncouth men have never been my TYPE.
Every Fall, I hate having to rake up LEAVES.
Every day, my neighbor LEAVES for work at 4:30 a.m.
HOMOPHONES: words with the same PRONUNCIATION but DIFFERENT SPELLINGS and MEANINGS.
HOMOGRAPHS: words with the SAME SPELLINGS but DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS and MEANINGS.
The little boy WOUND up his toy car and it sped across the floor.
The little girl had a WOUND on her knee from falling off her bike.
....Now, like I said before, I KNOW WHO I AM, and ....
But, since I do understand that YOU need VISUAL AIDS for COMMUNICATION and COMPREHENSION, here ya go >>>>
And by the way, I usually CHARGE for "TUTORING;" but in "SPECIAL CASES," I will forego compensation.
So, FOR YOU, that ENGLISH LESSON is FREE.
This is not about words. This is about you proving you don't look at wack at you come across. You spend a lot of energy on denial I see.
We're willing to even accept a full body back shot of you. There are many people here who are interested, not just me.
Really? Like when you ask the person at the reception desk do they "proof" parking, oh I mean validate?
I CLEARLY stated that words have the same meaning right? Then you attempt to give me a english lesson? lol
You said and again I'll quote you that "vadilate means proof". So if that's your logic. Why do you or don't you say do you "proof parking" here?
See how crazy english is? Words with the same spelling are the SAME WORD (but a different meaning). Thus the confusion starts. I've stated this about 20x already, yet you type type type for whatever reason, then you post a quote to substantiate my comment that english words having too many different meanings. A scenario which increases the chances of interpretation or misinterpretation.
In the Spirit of Sankofa,
... First off, my profuse apology, you are correct elder, your question was about the Universe, and not the earth's age.
But not so quick, after re-reading the Thread, you aren't getting off that easily, lol. Its apparent you made no attempt to correct myself or sister cherryblossom,
not a good thing to do in exchanges. Clearly, we answered the question from the viewpoint of the earth's age, the common and typical issue under debate today, not the age of the Universe.
So, I humbly withdraw my answer that 10K, as you say, is the age of the Universe... My answer applies to the age of the Earth; consequently affecting, for the record, any exchanges we've had, okay?
In other words, all quotes by me as having answered the age of the Universe as 10,000 years old are hereby nullified and incorrect... My source, the Bible, doesn't begin to indicate the age of the Universe, only the age of the Earth.
