    Weโ€™re talking about ๐—ต๐˜†๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฎ – a body core temperature below 35.0 ยฐC (95.0 ยฐF) in humans.

    The word ๐—ต๐˜†๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฎ comes from the Greek parts ๐—ต๐˜†๐—ฝ๐—ผ (meaning โ€œless thanโ€), ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ (meaning โ€œless thanโ€), & -๐—ถ๐—ฎ (โ€œstate; conditionโ€).

    The term ๐—ต๐˜†๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฎ is said to have been first recorded in 1885โ€“90. Antarctic explorers Ernest Shackleton & his team observed that body temperatures “below 94.2ยฐ, … … spells death at home”, though this probably referred to oral temperatures rather than core temperature & corresponded to mild hypothermia.

    P eople of India! This is the rarest of rare opportunities because for the first time, and hopefully for the last, we are facing the toughest exam, together. And, that last word โ€“ โ€œtogetherโ€ โ€“ is what is going to get us through to the other side.

    This is not the first great catastrophe that humanity has ever faced; and if there is one lesson that we can learn from the previous ones, it is the lesson of standing tall together! &, therefore, Logophilia urges you to spread positivity at this time of crisis. While you may not be able to physically be available for service, the least that you can do is to spread to love, strength, and encouragement to strengthen the spirit of the world.


    What you can do to spread positivity?

    Make this image the DP of every person on the planet who is under lockdown!

    We have watched the world stand up for Feminism, Gay Rights, Racial Discrimination, Child Abuse.

    The word ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ comes from the Latin parts ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป (meaning โ€œcowโ€) & -๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ (โ€œtoโ€).

    The term ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ is a back-formation from “vaccination”, first used in 1803, 3 years after Edward Jenner coined “๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป” (1800).

    Whatโ€™s a ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ? Why does this remind me of #kings, #electronics, and #horses?

    Weโ€™re talking about bitter, frictional, denouncing speeches about someone, and why that kind of speech is a ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ!

    #2. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—˜๐˜๐˜†๐—บ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ด๐˜†
    The word ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ comes from the Greek parts ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ (referring to โ€œKing Philip II – King of Macedonโ€) and -๐—ถ๐—ฐ (โ€œrelated toโ€).

    Demosthenes (legendary Greek orator) made speeches directed against King Philip II of Macedon (the father of Alexander the Great). These speeches came to be known as ๐™ฅ๐™๐™ž๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™ ๐™ค๐™ž ๐™ก๐™ค๐™œ๐™ค๐™ž, or literally, โ€œspeeches relating to Philipโ€. In the ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฒ, a philippic has retained only the โ€œbitter, frictional, denouncing, defamatory speechโ€ part of the meaning, and today the word carries no specific reference to King Philip II.

    #5. When you think ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ you should be reminded of:
    A. ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐˜€ โ€“ because lots of kings were called ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ (here’s a list –ย https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_(name))
    B. ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜€ โ€“ because ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐˜€ is a Dutch multinational conglomerate and one of the largest electronics companies
    C. ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜€ โ€“ because ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฝ = ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น (love) + ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ (horse) = ๐—ฎ ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜€, which is a name used to describe knights, as they used to train with their horses for long hours.

    Philip derives from Greek – “hippo”, meaning “horse”. In Ancient Greece only the rich could own horses. Philip, therefore meant a horse-lover.
