Archaisms can either be used deliberately (to achieve a specific effect) or as part of a specific jargon (for example in law) or formula (for example in religious contexts). Many nursery rhymes contain archaisms. Some archaisms called fossil words remain in use within certain fixed expressions despite having faded away in all other contexts (for example, vim is not used in normal English outside the set phrase vim and vigor).
An outdated form of language is called archaic. In contrast, a language or dialect that contains many archaic traits (archaisms) relative to closely related languages or dialects spoken at the same time is called conservative.
Because they are things of continual discovery and re-invention, science and technology have historically generated forms of speech and writing which have dated and fallen into disuse relatively quickly. However, the emotional associations of certain words have kept them alive, for example: 'Wireless' rather than 'Radio' for a generation of British citizens who lived through the Second World War, even though the older word 'wireless' is an archaism, and in recent years the term has gained renewed popularity.
The pronominal adverbs found in the writing of lawyers (e.g. heretofore, hereunto, thereof) are examples of archaisms as a form of jargon. Some phraseologies, especially in religious contexts, retain archaic elements that are not used in ordinary speech in any other context: \"With this ring I thee wed.\" Archaisms are also used in the dialogue of historical novels in order to evoke the flavour of the period. Some may count as inherently funny words and are used for humorous effect.
A type of archaism is the use of thou, the second-person singular pronoun that fell out of general use in the 17th century, while you or ye, formerly only used to address groups, and then also to respectfully address individuals, is now used to address both individuals and groups. Thou is the nominative form; the oblique/objective form is thee (functioning as both accusative and dative), and the possessive is thy or thine.
This last example calls attention to the fact that although archaisms are not used much anymore, they are used. If a word or phrase is not used at all anymore, in any context, it is not an archaism; it is obsolete.
It is common for modern authors to use poetic archaisms in titles or for young characters to be fond of archaic poetry, because it usually feels more profound and authoritative than everyday modern English.
1640s, \"retention of what is old and obsolete,\" from Modern Latin archaismus, from Greek arkhaismos, from arkhaizein \"to copy the ancients\" (in language, etc.); see archaic. Meaning \"that which is archaic,\" especially \"an archaic word or expression,\" is by 1748.
Michael Herzfeld is the Ernest E. Monrad Research Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University. He also holds academic appointments at Leiden University, Shanghai International Studies University, the University of Rome-Tor Vergata, and the University of Melbourne. Herzfeld has authored numerous books and articles on a wide array of ethnographic, geographical, and theoretical topics. His latest book, Subversive Archaism, explores the politics of culture and national heritage through a comparative analysis of two sites: (1) Zoniana in Crete, Greece, and (2) Pom Mahakan in Bangkok, Thailand. In the following discussion, Herzfeld describes subversive archaism and some related concepts to explore their utility for contemporary cultural theory.
Nationalism was the main axes of the first Pahlavi era that was followed by using the Persian language and ethnicity, paying attention to the historical past and relying on the antiquity were of its manifestations the result of which was crystallized in the homeland patriotism. In this age of homeland, close bond component was king worship and archaism. Reza Shah's government, by leading the intellectuals sought to replace Imperial ideology of nationalism with the Iranian and Islamic culture and rests the legitimacy of his regime on it. One of the features and characteristics of the Pahlavi regime was the emphasis on the idea of nationalist glory and honor of the Zoroastrian religion of pre-Islamic Iran and the Persian language worshiped by that time.This article aims at the crystallization phenomenon of nationalism and ancient Persian language and ethnicity importance of convergence in the approach of the Iranian (Aryan era) in the first Pahlavi era and investigated the implications and intentions of the founders approach.
The ziggurat, the hut, the cave, the forest, the grotto, the pyramid, the labyrinth: architecture is populated by all sorts of archaic remnants, themes or forms that betray history. Archaisms surround us in literature and fashion, advertising and politics. From the Greek arche, archaisms always refer to origins, to an antique past or, to the allegedly latent, deep and underlying structures of social organization. This event proposes to discuss archaisms and their deployment by architecture by focusing in particular on the role of technology.
This understanding of archaisms as sites of political dispute that act in excess of their causal relations is crucial to Archaisms & Architecture: in addition to debating what are archaisms and why are they deployed, we propose to pay attention to what archaisms do in spatial and political terms and to pose the following questions: What are archaisms in architecture What is the power of archaisms How do they act
The event consists of a full day of lectures, conversations and presentations crossing architecture, cinema, psychoanalysis and art-history. Following the complex infiltration of archaic motifs within images of the future and the various perspectives from which something is deemed archaic, this seminar will address the use of archaisms in architecture as both speculative and projective tools.\"
The academy today is characterised by the hyper-modernisation of global, entrepreneurial, commercialised universities underpinned by the archaism of poor quality employment environments, elitist participation and widespread gender inequalities. Counter hegemonic advocates did not predict the scale of neo-liberal driven change. Traditionalists did not foresee the industrialisation of higher education. Change has not always been driven by academic imaginaries. One change is the visibility of women as students, or consumers of higher education, set against their partial visibility as leaders and knowledge producers. The recognition/misrecognition confuses and confounds gender debates. Women have been allowed in, embassy style but benchmarked in relation to male norms, entering a matrix of declared and hidden rules (Lynch 2009). Women are simultaneously constructed as winners and losers. Winners because female students are gaining access, but losers because of lack of entitlement to leadership and prestigious disciplines. In this chapter, I will discuss these topics in a global context.
In order to gain a critical understanding of the persistence of Islamic archaism and all its paraphernalia, one must approach it through the logic of its own history, as well as that of the Arabo-Muslim bourgeoisie of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which is radically different from the process of European history and from the residual folkloric Christianity of the present-day West.
Apart from its exemplary punishments, Islamic archaism has nothing new to offer. It appears to me to be part of the process of the break-up of the state in a world which is becoming ungovernable. If the Islamic movements were to take power following the failure and the expected fall of Khomeinism, they could only profoundly destabilise the Islamic world which is already smitten with crisis, terrorism and open or masked civil war. It is, however, obvious that Islamic archaism cannot come to power, or remain in power in an acceptable manner. Its force is already spent before it begins.
