Two links for consumption [Aug. 22nd, 2003|11:11 am]
Working With E-Prime: An interesting essay which advocates the abolition of pretty much all uses of the verb "to be" in its many forms. Interesting enough that I might give it a try, anyway. Provides examples and explanations.

Faith In The Game: An article that starts off with an interesting discussion of the differences between knowing something and knowing the name for it, and then moves to a science-versus-religion metaphor in the form of a game. I question a few of its points, like implying religion mainly exists to deal with ignorance, but I still recommend the read. One of these days I really must post some of my own thoughts on empiricism and religion, though. Hmmmm.

I know this is a little late, but I spent a week trying to e-prime in a creative writing class to took 3 years ago. It was harder than I thought it would be.
