The Subcategory is English Language which has four subcategories:
- American vs British English
- English Language Idioms
- English Slang
- Etymology of English words.
Can I ask that a subcategory "Word Meaning" be added to the English Language subcategory? The closest one thus far is Etymology but Etymology is the study of the origin of English words. Though it covers word meaning it has more to do the how the words have evolved throughout history.
Good suggestion, Cardisa! I'll create the new Topic either this afternoon or tomorrow.
Okay, you can now find the new Topic, Word Definitions and Meanings, under Books, Literature, and Writing>The English Language>Word Definitions and Meanings. You can start putting Hubs in the new Topic right away, but it won't get its own Topic page until it has 5+ Featured Hubs in it, just FYI.
Thanks Christy. I started a hub on the topic, I'll edit the category
Three out of the four linked pages under the English Language Topic have a grey PageRank (not a good sign). If you add another category for a single-Hub or five-Hub page, it will further dilute the PR4 flow of page rank to the other four pages. It would be better to change Etymology to 'Etymology and Meaning of English Words'. There are only 17 Hubs on that page and it has been several months since a new one has been published in that Topic. Google notices these things and the four subtopics in that category are having a PageRank problem right now.
Isn't that what "Etymology" means? It is the study of how words get their semantic meaning?
I think that etymology is the study of the history of the word and how it gets its meaning so it would seem to me that category covers both word meaning and the evolution of the word up to the current definition and pronunciation. I haven't seen what Cardisa is writing about in that category but my thought is that keeping the etymology-history and meaning--together would make more sense as Writer Fox mentioned Otherwise it would just be dictionary entries which I can't imagine would do well.
