About linguistic magic, ...

For general intents and purposes,
including reality tunnel expansion.

[Image: vitriol.jpg]

language is magick, not in a wizard
of Oz [Uz] or Harry potter sense, but Magick,
in a very real daily life determining sense.

an introduction as short as possible:

language / Linguaticum/ litterally:"Tongue-speech"/

speaking in tongues:

Glossolalia (from the Greek, "γλώσσα" (glossa), tongue and "λαλώ" (lalô),
to speak) comprises the utterance of semantically meaningless syllables.
Glossolalia is claimed by some to be an unknown mystical language;
others claim that glossolalia is the speaking of an unlearned foreign language (see xenoglossia).
Glossolalic utterances sometimes occur as part of religious worship (religious glossolalia).


grammar. /gramma./ grimoire./ [glamour] /

The word grimoire is from the Old French gramaire,
and is from the same root as the words grammar and glamour.

A grammar is a description of a set of symbols
and how to combine them to create well-formed sentences.
A Grimoire is, appropriately enough,
a description of a set of magickal symbols and how to combine them properly.

1176, gramarye, from O.Fr. grammaire "learning," especially Latin and philology,
from L. grammatica, from Gk. grammatike tekhne "art of letters,"
with a sense of both philology and literature in the broadest sense,
from gramma "letter," relating to "Logos" -"the word".

gramarye also came to mean "learning in general,
knowledge peculiar to the learned classes" (c.1320),
which included astrology and magic;
hence the secondary meaning of "occult knowledge"

A grimoire (IPA [grɪˈmwɑr]) is a book describing magical beliefs and practices,
written between the late-medieval period and the 18th century.
Such books contain astrological correspondences, lists of angels and demons,
directions on casting charms and spells, on mixing medicines,
summoning unearthly entities, and making talismans.

speech. / spell. / spelling. / spellbinding./
Dutch: spraak/. - spreuk/.- sprookje/.

spell (n.)
"incantation, charm," O.E. spell "story, speech," from P.Gmc.
*spellan (cf. O.N. spjall, O.H.G. spel, Goth. spill "report, discourse, tale;
" Ger. Beispiel "example;" see spell (v.1)).
Meaning "set of words with magical powers, incantation, charm"
first recorded 1579. Spellbound is attested from 1799, from bound "fastened."

"Spell" had many meanings in Anglo-Saxon.
It could mean narrative, history, story, fable; speech, discourse,
homily; message, news; statement or observation,

The concept of speech associated with "spell" is almost certainly older.
It is far more widespread and established, hence our lack of that meaning
appearing in Anglo-Saxon.
We see the speech oriented meaning well established in the Germanic tongues
from the earliest days of their developed writing.
The Old High German "spel" means a story, narrative or discourse.
The Old Norse "spialla" means to talk. The Gothic "spill" means a fable,
myth, narrative or tale.
Gothic also had "spilla," meaning to speak or discourse and "spillon," meaning to relate or give report.

"spellbinder" is often used to denote a speaker capable of holding an audiences attention.
The word "bind" and its synonyms, such as "fascinate,"
also have a long standing position in magical terminology
binding" and "fascination," are also based on action and function.

Typically, a spell can be a symbolic representation of a purported effect,
performed under the invocation of a deity, a call for aid from a higher power,
or the assemblage, direction, focus, or incorporation of the forces of nature.
It can even be an unwilling instantaneous action with no specific shape.

A Spell with negative effects would be a curse
[a verbal curse] which is where the meaning,
of "a bad word" - a curse word comes from.

O.E. curs "a prayer that evil or harm befall one," of uncertain origin.

c.1220, acursede "lying under a curse," pp. of obs. acursen "pronounce a curse upon, excommunicate,

curse relates to ; Ban./ bannish./ Bannan
ban :/O.E. bannan "to summon by proclamation,"

a spell with positive effects would be a charm or blessing.

Charm./ incantation./

Song./ Carmen./

Latin incantare (tr.), meaning "to chant (a magical spell) upon," \from in- "into, upon" and cantare "to sing".

c.1300, from O.Fr. charme "incantation," from L. carmen "song, verse,
enchantment," from canere "to sing" (see chant), with dissimilation of -n- to -r- before -m-.
The notion is of chanting or reciting verses of magical power.
Sense of "pleasing quality" first recorded 1598.
Meaning "small trinket fastened to a watch-chain, etc." first recorded 1865.

In Ancient Rome, the term "carmen" was generally used to signify a verse;
but in its proper sense, it referred to a spell or prayer, form of expiation, execration, etc.
Surviving examples include the Carmen Arvale and the Carmen Saliare. [1]


1490, from M.Fr. envoquer (12c.), from L. invocare "call upon, implore,"
from in- "upon" + vocare "to call," related to vox (gen. vocis) "voice"


1574, from L. evocationem (nom. evocatio),
from evocare "call out, rouse, summon," from ex- "out" + vocare "to call"
(see voice). Evoke is from 1623, often more or less with a sense of "calling spirits," or being called by them.
Evocation was used of the Roman custom of petitioning the gods of an enemy
city to abandon it and come to Rome; it was also used to translate the Platonic Gk. anamnesis
"a calling up of knowledge acquired in a previous state of existence."

sentence./ sententia./

c.1290, "doctrine, authoritative teaching," from O.Fr. sentence (12c.),
from L. sententia "thought, meaning, judgment, opinion," from sentientem,
prp. of sentire "be of opinion, feel, perceive" (see sense).
Loss of first -i- in L. by dissimilation. Meaning "punishment imposed by a
court" is from c.1300; that of "grammatically complete statement"
is attested from 1447, from notion of "meaning," then "meaning expressed in words."
The verb meaning "to pass judgment" is recorded from c.1400.


1398, "tangible thing, something perceived or presented to the senses,"
from M.L. objectum "thing put before" (the mind or sight),
neut. of L. objectus, pp. of obicere "to present, oppose, cast in the way of,"
from ob "against" + jacere "to throw" (see jet). Sense of "thing aimed at"


1315, "person under control or dominion of another," from O.Fr. suget,
subget "a subject person or thing" (12c.), from L. subjectus, noun use of pp.
of subicere "to place under," from sub "under" + combining form of
jacere "to throw." In 14c., sugges, sogetis, subgit, sugette;
form re-Latinized in Eng. 16c. Meaning "person or thing that may be acted upon"


1388, from O.Fr. verbe "part of speech that expresses action or being,"
from L. verbum "verb," originally "a word," from PIE base *were-
(cf. Avestan urvata- "command;" Skt. vrata- "command, vow;"
Gk. rhetor "public speaker," rhetra "agreement, covenant," eirein
"to speak, say;" Hittite weriga- "call, summon;"


rhyme./ rhym./rijm./reim./ reimkenner./ rhitme.

ryme, rime (c.1200) "measure, meter, rhythm," later "rhymed verse,"
from O.Fr. rime (fem.), related to O.Prov. rim (masc.),
earlier *ritme, from L. rithmus, from Gk. rhythmos "measured motion, time, proportion".

rhythmus "movement in time," from Gk.
rhythmos "measured flow or movement, rhythm," related to rhein "to flow,".

The metaphor is of plowing, of "turning" from one line to another
(vertere = "to turn") as a plowman does.
O.E. had fers, an early W.Gmc. borrowing directly from L. Meaning
"metrical composition" is recorded from c.1300.

Old Scottish word for magician,= "reim kenner,"
which literally translates to "knower of rhymes,"
referring obviously to "spells" and "incantations.".


Politician./ politie/ Politikos.

Politikos (Πολιτικος) in Greek or Politicus in Latin (258e-267a)
which means the knowledge to influence and control.

relates to :Gnosis.

Greek word for knowledge, γνώσις) refers to a form of spiritual knowledge

The term Gnosis is related to the [older] Sanskrit "jnana" (as in Jnana Yoga)
and to the Hebrew daath, which is the hidden sphere in the Kabbalah,
or that knowledge which was only given to the initiated.


So far the workings of linguistic Magic, ..

The pictures are interesting but somewhat unrelated,
i originally composed this post for a friend of mine whom i know
doesn't like to read long slabs of text without illustrations. :wink:

Several sources,.. some listed below:

Online Etymology dictionary
encyclopedia Brittanica [1911]
Panikon - Magick of language

If Thine I that I spy with my own little I Doeth Offend thee ; Pluck It out.

When I got this book "Deadly Words" out from the stacks at the downtown public library my name was recorded as a suspected.... what I don't know.

It's an amazing Cambridge U Press book on witchcraft in S. France -- where if you know someone's name then that person can be put under a curse and the only way to break the curse is if another witch finds out the name of the person who made the curse.

The book, I just amazoned it, sells for $90!!

Anyway if your library has it definitely check it out. How this works is through WAVEFORM -- so when you call on a Master's Energy that means it's a living person with strong AMPLITUDE at a high FREQUENCY who is accessed through WAVEFORM.

An example is Master Chunyi Lin -- pronounced "CHOON-yi Lin" meaning Spring Forest -- he sits in full-lotus as day (and night) and heals people!

He went 28 days with no water and no food -- sitting in full-lotus in a cave in China -- and traveled to heaven.

Now he fasts one day a week, eats only one small tofu-vegetable meal the other days, and then heals people all day, while teaching others how to do the same.

So his waveform is highly refined -- his name has strong amplitude! He can instantly go "into the emptiness" and send energy anywhere -- he can see you at any time -- just by knowing your first name, age and location and sex.

The Name of God is the Tetrad -- I Am that I Am means the Tai Chi symbol!!

JNANA yoga is the highest yoga in Vedic philosophy because it is Mind Yoga and the practice is called VICHARA or self-equiry -- repeat I-I-I-I to seek it's source.

The logic is inference and the process is asymmetrical resonance.

The I is the waveform into FORMLESS awareness.
