from Grendel to Beyond the Jabberwock

"lampost, lamppost, lamp-post or lamp post??"

approx 150 years ago the first "Englyshe Diction-arie and correcte pronunciationes of wordes" was written, before that the rule was 'anything goes' which had led to a complete mess of a language.

The guy who wrote the dictionary also wrote that on his street, although technically they were all speaking the same language, that none of them were speaking the same language and it was very confusing; that is why he wrote the dictionary. It was fifty years later that the first Grammar book came out, latter Victorian era.

So truly, the concept of 'proper spelling and proper grammar' is relatively new; just a few decades later world war one broke out - we have literally had only 100 years of 'correcte englyshe' and in that time, it has mutated again and again. Several credible dicitonaries now exist that have some authority (the word authority means 'has been published' it stems from the word 'author') and usually agree on spelling and concept although recently the NWO has began revising them like what Winston Smith was doing in George Orwells book '1984' (written in 1946).

All students of english language/literature need to work Shakespeare (FOUNDATIONAL as his reads added over 4000 previously only spoken words into the dictionary!) and Jeff Noon, a deconditionalist literature guru from the late 20th century / who tells it / well / who tells it / as it is / who / gets the message across / using language constructively / and for real / but / control-obsessive academic experts / the critics / hate his message / that / the structure is / poetic. Anthony Burgess book A Clockwork Orange is the 20th century literary Great as far as use of language and the issues faced by his generation goes.

I'd write it as 'lamp-post'; for to write lamp post as two words is an adjective (describing word) followed by an action word. That the reader takes a few moments to comprehend and understand these words as such, proves how brainwashed the reader is. In a hundred years time someone won't have the same cultural bias to perceive that you are talking about a specific everyday-awareness thing, a pole with a light on top of it. They will look in their dictionary and read 'lamp, a sort of beacon' and 'post, to post a letter'.

A lamp-post (hyphenated) however indicates a singular item, refers to a specific concept and labeled thus during a neo-cultural development in language; therefore a term used to describe an invention during a technological evolutionary phase not accounted for when the dictionary was originally written. This proves the need for revisionism, which is only of concern when that revisionism is used to strip the general awareness of specific concepts such as Freedom and self-responsibility verses state domination = slavery.

English language is fluid, has flux, the same intended meaning can be expressed through words in several different ways. This is unlike European counterparts for example 'the germanic block' to illustrate a case in point, in which; It is explained in a very structured order;
1 this is the topic that I am talking about, and then
2 that this is the information which I am to relay about it

If you study the Futhark (Nordic runes) there is a tradition that first rune is the overall concept while the following are the development stemming from that (Ra and Re). English uses a different alphabet and is a Creole language assimilating many other languages into its form.
