Because there are like 20 different ways to say the same thing, and it sounds like slang that doesn't even make sense. Just morphing now and days.

I find it difficult to say "ciemagraphy" and I find it really easy to say "cinematography". Lol, don't know why. Second one just feels natural and so much better. Everytime I'm trying to say "cinemagraphy" I feel like I'm splitting it into two, making 0.0001 pause for going from cinema to graphy. It feels awful.
2020-04-02 07:48
hahahaha oh my god, I'm gonna cry from laughter. We are talking about another level of ignorance. Listen. English language has borrowed each one of its elements from other older languages. In the case you are mentioning , falls into the greek category. Like every language in its own country, the words do make sense for the people there. The same goes for the word "cinemato" and "graphy". They are both greek and they serve a multifunctional purpose in grammar. The same for the word "to" that you are bitching about. It serves a purpose. If we translate the etymological meaning of the syllables, it goes likes this ---> cine (meaning the aesthetic of movement) , mato (meaning the purpose of the movement [to view] and implies the media that follows), graphy (meaning the capturing of the movement in visual memory). If you say "cinemagraphy" , this literally translates into a different word, with the literal meaning of it being "to record the chronicles of social groups", since the synthesis of two words can also alter their independant meaning. Cinema do means cinema like movies but in a synthesis with another word can has different meaning. Let's take another example from the english language. The word "ark" and the word "darkness". Obviously "darkness" word does not contain the meaning of the word "ark" in its meaning. Therefore, instead of changing a word, simply educate yourself further. The more you study , the less you complain.

We use language a lot more than we study it, so it only makes sense for language to be practical. Of course being structurally consistent is part of being practical, but in many cases being easy to pronounce is even more so.

yeah, maybe that's the reason we are full of stupid and ignorant people. We have "soften" every corner in society and we have oversimplify the aspects of life that need effort. The role of "standards" (in the practical sense) is not to guide us in blind adjustment but to imply the substance through minimalization. In which case, the meaning has been lost, cause cinemagraphy is a totally different word.

Speaking shouldn't need effort. There is no sense in having to put effort into unnecessary things. Save that effort for actually relevant things. Now, I couldn't care less whether the word is cinematography or cinemagraphy. I merely wanted to point out your, in my opinion, flawed reasoning.

Let me rephrase myself so that you might better understand. Of course you need to put in the effort to learn to speak a language on an understandable level. However, there is no sense in making that language unnecessarily complicated. If you can make the choice between a word being less complicated or etymologically consistent there is little sense in choosing the latter, in my opinion. Most of us, after all, are not linguists.

I believe that the context of discussion were the fundamental differences between "cinematography-cinemagraphy" that were raised after the lazyness of one person to understand it before adding it as a topic. From your first reply i understood that you didn't care about my argument but you merely wanted to express your somehow "suppressed" opinion. I wouldn't have argued about the artistical simplicity of a language at the first place but you also seemed to be indifferent to the wisdom that surrounds a stand-in-time vocabulary. I mean , i could have used your argument to the opposite way, meaning that modern languages tent to lose the meaning that represent and that is the core of practicallity. It is why you use language in the first place.

cinemagrapgy withouot "to" makes no sense. It is like saying "elepant instead of elephant". if you want it to have a meaning then you change the pronounciation of the word and it becomes "cinema--> kinema". "Kinema or kinima" is a social wave/movement like a social party let's say. IF you say "cinema-graphy" , that leads us to "kinemagraphy or kinimography" and that means to record the social movements since "graphy" means "to write downto record".

Cinematography (originally cynematographie in French) is a word built on Greek "kínēma" which means "movement" and "graphein" which means "write". So it's not really an English word. It's French using Greek (as many French word invention when Latin didn't provide it first).

Hollywood's never been into art. They are directly into the business of providing people with behavior and linguistic models to adopt (lifestyle, as a whole), like in a shelf so each one can choose to their tasting. The money this industry provides as profit is only to show the enormity of the current social power cinema has. BTW Cinema as art died the day Guy Debord decided to become a moviemaker lmao

I'm aware that generally long words are just a bunch of words put together (especially science related ones which are basically just a few greek words that define the word itself), or just multiple prefixes/suffixes added to already decently sized words like antidisestablishmentarianism, my French is terrible but I could compare it to 'anticonstitutionnellement' which again is just prefixes and suffixes added to an already decently sized word. Similar to the science naming thing there is a Welsh town of the name Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch which is literally just a very precise name of where the town is in Welsh.
