Netiquette IQ Blog Of 817/2017 - Words Are Their Own Opposites Definition and Examples of Janus Words



Buy the books at

 www.amazon.com/author/paulbabicki
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++===================================================










These Words Are Their Own Opposites
Definition and Examples of Janus Words in English
Updated April 10, 2017
A Janus word is a word (such as cleave) having opposite or contradictory meanings depending on the context in which the word is used. Also called antilogy, contronym, contranym, autantonym, auto-antonym, and contradictanyma.

Examples and Observations
  • To weather can mean "to endure" or "to erode."
  • Sanction can mean "to allow" or "to prohibit."
  • Fix can mean "a solution" (as in "find a quick fix") or "a problem" ("left us in a fix").
  • Clip can mean "to separate" (as in "clip the coupon from the paper") or "to join" (as in "clip the answer sheets together").
  • Left as a verb in the past tense means "to have gone"; as an adjective, it means "remaining."
  • Wear can mean "to last under use" or "to erode under use."
  • Buckle can mean "to fasten" or "to bend and then break."
  • The verb bolt can mean "to secure, lock" or "to start suddenly and run away."
  • Screen can mean "to conceal" or "to show."
  • Fast can mean "moving quickly" (as in "running fast") or "not moving" (as in "stuck fast").
  • The Verb Table in British English and American English
    "In British English, when you table a document, you add it to the agenda for a meeting, usually by placing copies on the table at the beginning of the meeting because it was not ready in time to be sent out. In American English, however, when you table a document, you remove it indefinitely from the agenda. Writers on both sides of the Atlantic should be aware of this possible source of confusion."
    (R.L. Trask, Mind the Gaffe! Harper, 2006)
  • Literally
    "[T]his usage of literally [to mean figuratively] . . . is not the first, nor will it be the last, instance of a word that is used in a seemingly contradictory way. There are many such words, and they arise through various means. Called 'Janus words,' 'contranyms,' or 'auto-antonyms,' they include cleave ('to stick to' and 'to split apart') . . . and peruse and scan (each meaning both 'to read closely' and 'to glance at hastily; skim'). Usage writers often criticize such words as potentially confusing and usually single out one of the meanings as 'wrong,' the 'right' meaning being the older one, or the one closer to the word's etymological meaning, or the one more frequent when 18th-century grammarians began to examine language systematically."
    (Jesse Sheidlower, "The Word We Love to Hate." Slate, Nov. 1, 2005)
     
  • Factoid
    "[Factoid is a] term created by Norman Mailer in 1973 for a piece of information that becomes accepted as a fact, although it is not actually true; or an invented fact believed to be true because it appears in print. Mailer wrote in Marilyn: 'Factoids . . . that is, facts which have no existence before appearing in a magazine or newspaper, creations which are not so much lies as a product to manipulate emotion in the Silent Majority.' Lately, factoid has come to mean a trivial fact. That usage makes it a contranym (also called a Janus word) in that it means both one thing and its opposite . . .."
    (Paul Dickson, "How Authors From Dickens to Dr. Seuss Invented the Words We Use Every Day." The Guardian, June 17, 2014)
     
  • Schizophrenic Words
    "Best and worst both mean 'to defeat.' Cleave means both 'to cling to' and 'to split apart.' Fast means both 'speedy' and 'immobilized' (as well as several other things). Dress means to put on apparel, as a person does, or to take it off, as is done to a chicken. And while you are reflecting on such oddities, you may as well know that bleach means also 'blacking'; bluefish also 'greenfish'; bosom also 'depression'; emancipate also 'to enslave'; and help also 'to hinder.'"
    (Willard R. Espy, The Garden of Eloquence: A Rhetorical Bestiary. Harper & Row, 1983)

Netiquette IQ Blog Of 8/16/17 - Definition Of "Unit Testing".


Buy the books at

 www.amazon.com/author/paulbabicki
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++===================================================









Unit testing
Unit testing is a software development process in which the smallest testable parts of an application, called units, are individually and independently scrutinized for proper operation. Unit testing can be done manually but is often automated.

Unit testing is a component of test-driven development (TDD), a pragmatic methodology that takes a meticulous approach to building a product by means of continual testing and revision. Test-driven development requires that developers first write failing unit tests. Then they write code and refactor the application until the test passes. TDD typically results in an explicit and predictable code base.

Unit testing involves only those characteristics that are vital to the performance of the unit under test. This encourages developers to modify the source code without immediate concerns about how such changes might affect the functioning of other units or the program as a whole. Once all of the units in a program have been found to be working in the most efficient and error-free manner possible, larger components of the program can be evaluated by means of integration testing.

Unit testing does have steep learning curve. The development team needs to learn what unit testing is, how to unit test, what to unit test and how to use automated software tools to facilitate the process on an on-going basis. The great benefit to unit testing is that the earlier a problem is identified, the fewer compound errors occur. A compound error is one that doesn't seem to break anything at first, but eventually conflicts with something down the line and results in a problem.

Netiquette IQ Blog Of 8/15/2017 - What Is A Unicorn?


Buy the books at

 www.amazon.com/author/paulbabicki
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++===================================================










Unicorn
A unicorn, in an investment context, is a tech startup that is assessed at a valuation of $1 billion or more; companies valued at more than $10 billion are sometimes called decacorns and those valued over $100 billion are called super unicorns.
Cowboy Ventures founder Aileen Lee first used unicorn in a financial context in a November 2013 TechCrunch blog post, "Welcome to the Unicorn Club." At that time, Lee identified 39 unicorns, including Facebook, Dropbox, Pinterest, Yammer, LinkedIn and Instagram. Research firm CB Insights, which maintains a current list, put the number of unicorns in the world at 140 in October 2015.
References to unicorns by venture capitalists have become increasingly common as the economy has gotten better. According to many investment experts, the burgeoning market for Internet of Things (IoT) products and technologies is likely to make the number of unicorns increase exponentially over the next several years.
In mythology, a unicorn is an elusive horse-like creature with magical powers. In human resource management (HRM), the term has been used for many years to describe a job candidate who has a very particular and very desirable skill set. A unicorn may also be called a purple squirrel, another metaphor used to describe the rare candidate who has exactly the right hard skills, soft skills and experience.
