word / n.
The Canadian Oxford Dictionary defines “word” first and foremost as: “a sound or combination of sounds forming a meaningful element of speech …”
Words are special. By definition, to be words – and not just unintelligible sounds or senseless, trifling squiggles on a page – they must have meaning. In fact, they must be filled with meaning, or meaning full. Words are what give us the ability to form thoughts and communicate ideas.
They are not to be taken for granted. Words can be piercing and powerful, or lifeless and dull. They can inspire and move us, or leave us enfeebled and demoralized. They can convey truth or error, be plain or fancy, lofty or base.
Whether I’m writing news releases, newsletters, video scripts, speeches, articles or books, I help my clients find the right words to carry the ideas and messages from their organizations to the people that need to receive them. I craft words that don’t just go out, but words that get through.
To get through to me, please feel free to drop me a line.
