GS & Culture
GS & Interpersonal Relations
In this forum, we invite members to post questions and stories about the day-to-day events that somehow relate to GS. Some of us find applying GS principles in moments of tension a lot harder than talking about them in moments of calm. If you have had some success in overcoming a personal challenge, tell the rest of us about it! If you see a 'problem' looming on your horizon and want to bounce around some ideas on how to tackle it, ask around. Perhaps somebody here has some ideas that will help.

Calling out the Symbol Rulers
This forum provides an opportunity for members to document examples of how 'rulers' of all types use language and symbols in attempts to manipulate our opinions, reactions, and behaviors. Please do not post copyrighted material.

In the News
Here we welcome postings about items in the news that you think others might find interesting or relevant in some way to the study of language or general semantics. This forum differs from "Calling out the Symbol Rulers" by focusing on reports of scientific studies and general news items, versus items related to how institutions or individuals control societies by controlling language.
