Dramastically and other such words…


This certainly falls under the heading of – must write blog – and is suitably tagged “RANT”.

 

DRAMASTICALLY The Word

Made up of course.  Specifically that combination of Drastic and Dramatic.  Now comes the inevitable question.  How to use it in a sentence.  What forms?  What about the roots, Dramatic and Drastic? 

Both are adjectives so, that would imply that dramstically is an adjective.

Working definition? 

Dramatic:

ADJECTIVE
1. sudden and marked: large in degree or scale, and often occurring with surprising suddenness
"a dramatic jump in prices"
2. striking: bold, vivid, or strikingly impressive in appearance, color, or effect
"a dramatic view of the Alps"
3. exciting and intense: characterized, in real life or in art, by the kind of intense and gripping excitement, startling suddenness, or larger-than-life impressiveness associated with drama and the theater
"the dramatic rescue of the survivors at sea"
4. for theater: written for the theater, or relating to the theater, plays, or acting
5. having powerful expressive voice: having a powerful singing voice especially suited to the expression of intense emotion, e.g. in tragic or villainous roles in opera
"a dramatic tenor"

 

Drastic

ADJECTIVE
1. powerful in effect: having a powerful effect or far-reaching consequences
"a crisis calling for drastic measures"
2. very marked: very noticeable, significant, and usually worrying because of its amount or degree
"drastic budget cuts"

 

So:

“The situation turned dramastically worse.  The computers froze, the fire alarm went off and the sprinklers all kicked on at the same time.  There was no way to disarm the bomb.”

 

Ok, I think that situation falls under dramastically.  Sudden and marked things happened all at once.   The effect would be powerful and the result would be very noticeable.

I suppose this could be turned into:

“The situation turned dramastically worse.” –> “The situation turned dramatic and worsened dramatically.

 

Ok, the fee fi and fo fum blog note is done.  It’s Friday! Yay!

Originally, this was a pretty darn boring post. Kinda like... Well I won't go there. Perhaps its still on the robotic side but... I could say I like music. Safe, generic and non-comittal. Or, I could say that I've been having a blast tuning up my old guitars, getting blisters on my fingers and turning the amp up past 2. Amazaing what a little overdrive and a half pressed wahwah pedal can do for a sound. Get that cool "Money for Nothin" vibe happening. I get a real kick out of reading old Sci Fi. Reading Asimov's vision about the future is really entertaining now. When he wrote much of the material, the items that were futuristic were day to day tools I used in the early part of my career. Microfiche and the like. I also remember that upstart Microsoft and MS DOS...and can you say Lotus 123? So maybe this is a little better than "I like to read and play music". My career is focused on Team Leadership and Technology. Both share the attributes of continual growth and education. Currently, I manage a team of 4 programmers as direct reports. I've been in this role since 08/2007. Prior to that, I was the team lead (on site) for integration with the customer. Customers ranged from local government to manufacturing and medical. Teams ranged in size from one to six additional team members. On the other side is technology. I've been keeping current with .net technologies focusing on C# and Sharepoint (2007/2010). Specialties Team Building and Management Technical Staff Recruiting Microsoft Visual Studio 7 through 2010 (VB.NET and C#.NET) Microsoft SQL Server 6.5-2008R2 (DTS, TSQL, SSIS, SSAS, and SSRS ) SharePoint 2010 (Office Integration, InfoPath, Site Management and planning) Windows Server 2008 R2 AD DS PowerShell Techology analysis Puchasng and working with vendors Microsoft licensing management and compliance Business Systems Analysis Traning plans Mentoring Training coordination.
