It's titled The Importance of every Word.
00:06
It's very important in everything that we do, that we're very careful about the usage of words
00:13
and how we how we structure our sentences
00:17
because the difference between
00:20
two sentences can be substantial. We're gonna use, um,
00:24
pretty outlandish examples. But we're going to make the point that every word you use and every sentence structured in your report should
00:36
be structured in a way to make sure that it is interpreted the proper way.
00:42
So in this video, we're going to talk about the importance of every word.
00:47
You know, there's a really great literary example from Lewis Carroll in Alison Wonderland. That's
00:54
part of the book
00:55
that really establishes and kind of
01:00
gives a really good, uh,
01:03
backdrop to the idea of the importance of every word.
01:08
The March Hare went off will serve as our lesson
01:15
for this matter.
01:18
Then you should say what you mean. The March hare went on. I do, Alice hastily replied. At least at least I mean what I say. That's the same thing. You know,
01:27
not the same thing a bit, said the Hatter.
01:30
You might just as well say, I see what I eat is the same thing as I eat what I see.
01:38
And of course, there's always the grammatical, the funny kind of means that are out there of Let's Eat Grandma versus Let's Eat Comma Grandma
01:46
or I like cooking My family and Mike Pets, commas save lives.
01:52
It's important that
01:53
while these humorous examples air being used, it's important
01:59
to remember that every word you use
02:01
and and the way in which you structure your words can change the meaning radically.
02:08
In this video, we covered the importance of every word.
