Last Updated: 02/16/2007On human communicative fallibility
Francisco Gomez de Matos
Our communicative life is a rise-and-fall and a fall-and-rise
Errors,gaffes, inaccuracies,lapses,slips can blur our linguistic days
Can self-monitoring and imperfection-preventing make us a little wise ?
A much deeper quality is needed : Sustaining peaceful, linguistic ways
Communicating is intention-translating
Enhancing freedom or exerting oppression
Communicating is the art of effect-creating
Making a positive or a negative impression
To be communicatively effective
Is part of our Language Education
To be communicatively affective
Calls for Dignity and Humanization
Expressing oneself is a challenging act
When communicating,we may slip and fall
Error-making calls for error-forgiving
Communicatively fallible: aren´t we all ?
Francisco Gomes de Matos is an applied peace linguist and President of the Board of the Brazil America Association.
