“What is the single most powerful positive word
in the English language?”
A lively discussion has lit up on LinkedIn on TED’s discussion group to answer that question.
The community responses are shown in the following tag cloud.
From Blog to Haiku to 6 Words to Single Word
Reductionism. This seems to be all too appealing for some in their online communication.
First, it was the blog, a shortened form of the news winnowed down to a journaled blurb.Then it was the 140 character tweet which restricted the 160 characters of its antecedent, the cellular text message.
Haiku tweets then added a pleasant literary intentionality to this narrowed universe with their 5-7-5 syllabic 3 line poems. It is same line of reductionism that fuels the popularity of the Six words blogs, stories and subsequent contests. Which only makes sense that this TED Group would (finally) query asking for a single word.
How would you answer?
What is the single most powerful positive word in the English language for you?
