HIGHER CASE and lower case

HIGHER CASE and lower case

WHAT IS HIGHER CASE WHICH IS CALLED UPPER CASE BY SOME PEOPLE  OR WHAT IS lower case AND DO THEY HAVE MEANINGS?

WORDS ARE WORDS, NOT EMOTIONS,  THEY CAN BE USED TO EXPRESS EMOTION BUT IN THEMSELVES THEY HAVE NO FEELINGS ONLY HAS WE ACCEPT AND RECEIVE THEM.

EXAMPLE – HIGHER CASE WHEN USED TO SOME PEOPLE MEANS ANGER

TO OTHERS RUDENESS

TO OTHERS A FORM OF RESPECT

TO OTHERS AUTHORITY

TO OTHERS A WAY OF GETTING PEOPLE TO TAKE NOTICE

TO OTHERS A WAY TO HIGHLIGHT SOMETHING IMPORTANT

TO OTHERS IT IS EASIER THAN CHANGING FROM HIGHER TO LOWER

SOME PEOPLE LIKE IT BECAUSE IT’S EASIER TO READ

OTHERS FIND IT HARDER.

 

IN EMAIL WORLD SOME PEOPLE RECOGNIZE A WORD TYPED IN HIGHER CASE FOLLOWED BY AN EXCLAMATION MARK ! AS INDICATING THAT THE SENDER IS SHOUTING

OR AT VERY LEAST TALKING LOUD.

MOST OF THESE CAN APPLY WHEN USING lower case TOO, YOU COULD SAY SOMEONE IS WHISPERING IF THEY USE lower case OR MAYBE WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IS NOT IMPORTANT.

YOU CAN GIVE WORDS ANY MEANING YOU WANT TO BECAUSE YOU ACCEPT WHAT YOU READ BY HOW YOU FEEL OR THINK.  IN OTHER WORDS YOU PUT THE FEELING INTO THE LETTERS, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, WHICH MEANS HOW YOU FEEL AND THINK IS THE MESSAGE YOU RECEIVE.

EARLY MANUSCRIPTS, DOCUMENTS AND PERSONAL LETTERS MAINLY USED LARGE AND HIGHLIGHTED LETTERING.  SOME WERE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND DECORATIVE BUT ALL WERE DISTINCTIVE, BOLD AND CLEAR. PEOPLE EXPRESSED THEIR CREATIVITY IN THESE LETTERS AND MANY WORKS OF ART REFLECTED THIS WRITING ALSO.

MUCH WISDOM AND GUIDANCE HAS BEEN PASSED ON THROUGH THE CENTURIES AND EARLY MANUSCRIPTS OF THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS WERE WRITTEN IN LARGE SCRIPT AND HEAVY DARK INK WITHOUT SMALL PARTICLES SUCH AS a, it, is etc. THERE WERE ALSO NO BOOKS, CHAPTERS OR VERSES AS WE KNOW THEM TODAY ONLY IN THOSE THAT WERE ADDED LATER IN ERROR.

IN SOME OF THE MANUSCRIPTS PAUL THE APOSTLE  SAID  HE USED BIG OR LARGE LETTERS AND YES HIS WRITINGS WERE ALSO EXTENSIVE SO BOTH MAY APPLY. EITHER WAY THIS  WAS HIS WAY TO GET HIS MESSAGE ACROSS SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD TAKE NOTICE AND HE DID HAVE THE AUTHORITY FROM GOD TO DECLARE THE TRUTH USING HIS OWN EXPRESSION AND THE WAY HE HAD BEEN GIFTED.

 WE NEED TO REMEMBER THE TRUTH COMES FROM GOD EVEN THOUGH WE MAY EXPRESS IT IN OUR OWN UNIQUE WAY.

TODAY MAGAZINES AND ADVERTISEMENTS USE HIGHER CASE TO GET YOUR ATTENTION. THEY WANT YOU TO STOP AND LOOK AND BUY- YOUR MONEY IS IMPORTANT TO THEM.

 SOMETIMES MORE THAN THE TRUTH, SO IT’S NOT  ALWAYS PRESENTED BECAUSE THEY NEED YOUR PATRONAGE.

HOW SAD IT WOULD BE TO REJECT SOMETHING BECAUSE OF OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING OR WHAT SOMEONE ELSE THINKS.  SO WHEN YOU RECEIVE A LETTER OR E-MAIL, READ A BOOK OR MAGAZINE ETC, IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER WHAT CASE IS USED OR IF IT HAS BEEN HIGHLIGHTED  WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT

IS THAT THE CONTENT

 IS

THE TRUTH.

    Upper case lower case as long as it is written nicely. Focus on gentle words and how we use them

    I can think of one exception! As a Sunday School teacher for children, I always made sure that they capitalized the G in God. I have seen many people spell God with a lower case g. The capital “G” signifies that He is the one true God and not a pretend god which is simply an idol!

    I do get your point! We are to do whatever we can to share the gospel! Paul worded it as, “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” (1 Corinthians 9:22-23)

    BLESSINGS TO YOU ANNIE! The all caps is meant to be a hug from me to you!

    • Yes I agree with you Debbie and I always make sure I use Capitals when sharing the Names of The Godhead but this was in reference to whole sentences using HIGHER CASE or lower case.

      As I shared with Diane, I wrote this message years ago after I had been accused of being angry and rude because I wrote in Higher or Upper case but I was not angry, I used Higher case because with not knowing how to type at that time and with my being Dyslectic, it was easier than changing from Higher to lower case and vice versa, Blogging has helped me a great deal with my typing and I don’t need to do this now even when I’m angry.

      It is important that “To the weak we became weak but as we know we must never compromise God’s Truth or agree with Evil to win them over.

      ((( A BIG HUG TO YOU TOO DEAR DEBBIE ))) from your Blogging FRIEND Annie.

  3. I believe that sometimes written words as in emails or text messages, can never fully express what the writer is trying to say. There are no ‘feelings’ or ‘intonations’ when written, and the person reading may not interpret the words as they are meant. In my own experience this has in the past been the case…… Diane

    • Yes Very True Diane, people do not always interpret the words as we mean them. I wrote this message years ago after I had been accused of being angry and rude because I wrote in Higher or Upper case but I was not angry, I used Higher case because with not knowing how to type at that time and with my being Dyslectic, it was easier than changing from Higher to lower case and vice versa, Blogging has helped me a great deal with my typing and I don’t need to do this now even when I’m angry. Lol

      Good to see you Blogging again Diane, I will visit you soon, yes I’m still behind but seeking to catch up, I have had a friend visiting and my Computer also crashed again and had to be reformatted, I’m using an old one now, it seems to be OK so if you find I’m responding to your older Posts you will know why.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

  4. As we think in our Heart our words and actions will show but not the size of our words their content.
