View this post on Hive: Let's Talk About Words, Episode #2: "Should"
Oh, this is just like the much debated verse from the Cain & Abel story, Genesis 4:7. Even now, the various translations alternate between using the words shall, will, and should. The original Hebrew word "timshel" however is supposedly closest to may. John Steinbeck wrote a whole novel around this moral lost in translation, East of Eden. Thanks for addressing this very curious shift in meaning!

Interesting idea for a series :)I'll definitely be follow along.
Fascinating love a bit of entomology think we could all do with do some research into the words we use. Mortgage is an interesting one 😉 💯🐒
Oh ya, mortgage is one of my favorites to teach to people when explaining the importance of etymology, and how the way that a word is currently used isn't necessarily what it actually means.
Yep I leant the meaning and it put me off for year but here in the UK the rental is so high i got one. Cut my outgoings but £300 a month so I got into the ... Mortgage won't spoil you post.Not bee read a lot on steam recently just can't keep up, prefer to spend my time away from the screen. I am very torn as to how to manage it to be honest. Maybe I need a cull haha.
I want to do some videos myself interviews. Think we spoke before about it. Just trying to find good decentralise software and develop my stance. Just the time I have a big project i want to develop so that's taking my mind currently. Any suggestions would be welcome 💯🐒
Also one's perception and the way of looking at things will allow them to interpret the words in the way most convenient to them.A very thin line between the Can I, May and Should I but sometimes it's all jumbled up and kind of comes out with the same meaning though they are not.
