Madlibbing with Modernism…

Madlibbing with Modernism….

I really hoped my readers would engage this post more actively, so I’m reposting it. The answer may be obvious, given what you know about my ‘style’ as a blogger, but I think there’s a very fruitful, if not fraught, discussion to be had in why the answer is open to debate, if we simply go by the words cited, rather than by any clues we bring to bear on ‘figuring out’ the passage.  Don’t know if that makes any sense, but, hey, it’s my blog, right?

One Response to Madlibbing with Modernism…

  1. Socrates says:

    I have a question: could the statement “Contraception was not used in the 1300’s” be used as shorthand for the meaning “Contraception was not widely used in the 1300’s” or “Contraception was not, in general used in the 1300’s”?

    Thank you.

    Christi pax.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
