This week Jen urges us to do some visual storytelling with our photography. Wordpress weekly photo challenge: Story
WOOF (the complete Lexis)
Lexis: “All the words in a language” Cambridge Dictionary.
I will admit that the language ability of our family dog certainly consist of more than only Woof but that is the main word. There are also whining and whimpering and a whole range of different “body language” woofs. But the story really does use the complete Lexis. While you do not hear anything, you are seeing the whole of Lexis as that is her name.
My Afrikaans speaking daughter Elrike did not realize that the word had multiple meanings when she named her Lexis, (short for Alexis). But then while Lexis is of unknown descent; Elrike certainly isn’t. I would like to venture a theory on where she got her natural language ability and dashing good looks (everything but her hair) but that may border on being egotistical…
Anyway the story is in the photos and my lexis is limited this week!
