In the study of language, it has been recognized that words used to convey sensory perceptions, feelings, and emotions carry no meaning of themselves. They can trigger feelings or sensations that the listener has experienced -- not more than that.  We know that the perception of color varies with light, background, and distance.  What is green seen by a color-blind person?  Which is the "real" color?  Are we not, in asking that question, implying that color exists independent of the observer?
Similarly, when we characterize an individual or a social behavior as "good" or "bad", we are communicating the contention that this evaluation is absolute, objective, and unchanging.  Yet it should be apparent that varying observers would present disparate evaluations.  We may, then, attempt to win agreement by describing the behavior in question, offering criteria on which judgment was based, indicating that these criteria are personal.  This communication style, the semanticist holds, will help bridge the gap between individuals and make it more likely that people will understand each other.
Students of language have experimented with the use of nonsymbolic language as a means of overcoming linguistic barriers.  The language of sounds, as in the cases of infants and animals, and the language of facial expression and body pose, have been termed "phatic communion" by Bronislaw Malinowski.  We all know people who have good "poker faces."  We also know some whose faces communicate -- sometimes contradicting their spoken sentiments.  Kyrsybski has pointed out that signal reactions, instantaneous and unmediated, if undifferentiated according to the appropriateness of the situation, reflect immature, impulsive personalities, while the development of the ability to delay response will permit modified, thoughtful symbol behavior, a characteristic of the mature person.

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the early days of movie making in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?
Before the pioneering films of D. W. Griffith, film makers were limited by several misguided conventions of the era.  According to one, the camera was always fixed at a viewpoint corresponding to that of a spectator in a theater -- a position now known as the long shot.  It was another convention that the position of the camera never changed in the middle of a scene.
In last week's films, we saw how Griffith ignored both these limiting conventions and brought the camera closer to the actor.  This shot, now known as a full shot, was considered revolutionary at the time.  "For Love of Gold" was the name of the film in which we saw the first use of the full shot.
After progressing from the long shot to the full shot, the next logical step for Griffith was to bring in the camera still closer in what is now called the close-up.  The close-up had been used before, although only rarely, and merely as a visual stunt, as for example for in Edwin S. Porter’s “The Great Train Robbery” which was made in 1903.  But not until 1908 in Griffith’s movie called “After Many Years” was the dramatic potential of the close-up first exploited.  In the scene from “After Many Years” that we are about to see, pay special attention to the close-up of Annie Lee’s worried face as she awaits her husband’s return.  In 1908 this close-up shocked everyone in the Biograph studio.  But Griffith had no time for argument.  He had another surprise, even more radical to offer.  Immediately following the close-up of Annie, he inserted a picture of the object of her thoughts – her husband, cast away on a desert isle.  This cutting from one scene to another without finishing either of them, brought a torrent of criticism on the experimenter.
