Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 23 Aug 19 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, General Semantics |

I enjoy the General Semantics (actually, more “ePrime”) exercise of debating whether anything is ever truly 100% awful. 2,891 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-02-08 19:20:50.

Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 20 Aug 19 in ePrime, General Semantics, Uncategorized |

  Someone recently wrote something to the effect that he embraces the principle of ePrime, but does not use it in ordinary conversation because it often sounds peculiar and therefore might alienate the other person.   1,150 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2012-12-31 03:20:25.

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,774 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

General Semantics.  If you are new to General Semantics (GS), you can save yourself from going down a rabbit hole by understanding that the word General doesn’t communicate much here, and, more importantly, the word Semantics is very misleading . . . 198 total views, no views today

TOWARD UNDERSTANDING E-PRIME by Robert Anton Wilson Originally published  nobeliefs.com Robert Anton Wilson E-PRIME, abolishing all forms of the verb “to be,” has its roots in the field of general semantics, as presented by Alfred Korzybski in his 1933 book, Science and Sanity. 5,556 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-04-24 07:38:38.
