Description : One March morning, writer Floyd Skloot was inexplicably struck by an attack of unrelenting vertigo that ended 138 days later as suddenly as it had begun. With body and world askew, everything familiar had transformed. Nothing was ever still. Revertigo is Skloot’s account of that unceasingly vertiginous period, told in an inspired and appropriately off-kilter form. This intimate memoir—tenuous, shifting, sometimes humorous—demonstrates Skloot’s considerable literary skill honed as an award-winning essayist, memoirist, novelist, and poet. His recollections of a strange, spinning world prompt further musings on the forces of uncertainty, change, and displacement that have shaped him from childhood to late middle age, repeatedly knocking him awry, realigning his hopes and plans, even his perceptions. From the volatile forces of his mercurial, shape-shifting early years to his obsession with reading, acting, and writing, from the attack of vertigo to a trio of postvertigo (but nevertheless dizzying) journeys to Spain and England, and even to a place known only in his mother’s unhinged fantasies, Skloot makes sense of a life’s phantasmagoric unpredictability.

Description : How I Met Your Mother has a misleading title. Sure, the premise focuses on a father telling his kids how he first met their mother, but it's really just about life - Ted finding his future mate is just a small part of that story. Season 3 of the hit CBS comedy series continues to revolve around Ted Mosby, struggling architect, and his four best friends. This time, however, the dynamic is a bit different than in the previous seasons. Marshall and Lily are married, and as of last season's finale, Ted and Robin are broken-up. Barney continues to be his hilarious womanizing self, but no one expects or desires that to change any time soon.

Description : Norma Christianstead is the first person raised from conception to adulthood in zero gravity. The year is 2200. She is a temporal savant. The goal is to determine how micro-gravity interacts with physical, intellectual, social and psychological development. Fifteen years later a CRISPR-spawned plague is overtaking Earth. Norma learns there is another goal to the experiment: to respond to the divinations of a secret artifact—a beacon—of an ancient civilization that vacated the Tharsian region of Mars a billion years earlier when the planet’s seas evaporated. The response to the beacon demands nothing less than an epigenetic evolutionary alteration in Norma, for theTharsian genomic code is genophotonic: a hybrid consisting of physical and photonic parts. In this, Patrick Moran’s fourteenth novel, the author comes to grips with how and why gravity and perception are related. In Zero Gravity Girl he weds the two in a tale that redefines the meaning of love and life, time and space.

Description : Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject American Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, , language: English, abstract: This text is a detailed analysis of the most valuable word plays and their underlying types of word formation in "How I Met Your Mother". It puts special focus on the combination of different word formations being involved at the same time. "How I Met Your Mother" – often abbreviated to HIMYM – is an American sitcom that follows a non-linear story in which the life of five friends living in New York is described. As a framing device the main character Ted Mosby tells his children how he met their mother. Using retrospective view he recounts in how far different actions and events in his and his friends’ past finally made him get to meet his future wife. His narration covers a time of 25 years and is told throughout eight seasons in 208 episodes. Throughout the story different kinds of linguistic word formations are used, often in types of puns and word plays to create humorous situations. Especially Barney Stinson, one of Ted Mosby’s best friends uses recurring puns by inventing new terms which he uses over and over again throughout the story.
