The black and white world of James

The black and white world of James

As I’ve been reading through James lately its come to my attention that he uses a lot of categories for different types of people that I don’t often, if ever, resort to.

Heterosemy… now that’s a funny word

It wasn’t but a year ago that I’d heard the word heterosemy for the first time. I was beginning to write an article with a good friend and he started throwing around this new $10 word. I quickly and unashamedly asked what it meant. He explained it something like this (except, take out the US … Continue reading
