Lots of people think verbal self-defense means fighting back. Their image of verbal self-defense is a collection of killer smart cracks plus strategies for using language to wipe the floor with their opponents. It's not an accurate image. In this edition of How Stuff WorksI'd like to show you a different way to relate to other people, especially when you disagree. Let's talk about it a minute. It has undoubtedly happened to you.
There you are, in the middle of a fierce argument with someone, and suddenly you realize that you not only don't particularly care about the subject of the argument but you can't understand how you got into the altercation in the first place! This isn't trivial. Hostile language is dangerous to your health and well-being; it's toxic stuff.
People who are frequently exposed to hostile language get sick more often, are injured more often, take longer to recover from illness and injury, and suffer more complications during recovery. As an obvious result, they tend to die sooner than those not so exposed. What's more, hostile language is just as dangerous to the person dishing it out and to innocent bystanders who can't leave the scene as it is to the person on the receiving end.
Obviously it's to your advantage to stay out of arguments in both your personal and your professional life, unless something truly important -- something about which you care profoundly -- is at stake. Even then, most of us are aware that it's possible to have intense discussions that don't turn into altercations. How is it, then, that intelligent people keep finding themselves involved in arguments almost by accident?
The answer is pretty simple, and it's a relic of the days when humankind dealt with sabertooth tigers at close range on a regular basis. One of the parts of your brain the amygdala is on constant duty, and one of its primary tasks is to scan for danger.
When it spots an incoming perception that meets its criteria for danger, it has the ability to send a message that provokes an immediate fight-or-flight reaction, and it can do that without first going through the reasoning part of your brain.
It can literally short-circuit your thinking process. In the sabertooth tiger days this was a good thing. You saw something vaguely big and furry, and you either left the scene fast or threw your club. You acted first, and then you thought about it, which increased your odds of survival a good deal.
This part of your brain can still be a good thing on those very rare occasions when you do face imminent life-threatening sudden peril from tornadoes or terrorists or mad gun-toters. The problem is that it's just as likely to kick in when the only threat you face is some klutz who wants to argue about whether his computer is more powerful than your computer.
If the amygdala thinks the klutz is a threat, it bypasses your reasoning brain -- and shortly you're thinking, "I don't even CARE whether my computer has more memory than this turkey's computer! But if it happens often, it's a grave threat to your well-being.
It's a lot more dangerous to you than most of the risk factors you spend time and money trying to guard against. You need to know how to put an end to this nonsense. In every aspect of our lives we have to deliver or respond to negative messages at times--whether it's giving an employee a poor appraisal or disciplining a child or defending our political or religious beliefs from attack. But these simple disagreements often degenerate unnecessarily into belligerent exchanges and pointless arguments.
Some say that human beings are born to argue and that language is simply another weapon of survival. Suzette Haden Elgin heartily disagrees and in this new book shows how to disarm hostile language and radically improve communication with the Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense.
Readers will learn a variety of proven techniques for conveying negative messages in a clear and assertive manner, but without antagonistic and destructive language.Additional comments:.

It is the first short story I ever wrote and marks, in a manner of speaking, the end of my first phase, the Malayan phase with its special subject and its verbal suggestions. The production of genuine popular ballads began to wane in the fifteenth century when the printing press gave circulation to the output of cheap London writers and substituted reading for the verbal memory by which the ballads had been transmitted, portions, as it were, of a half mysterious and almost sacred tradition.
In order to deal with this topic we must consider the verbal expression of the memory-belief. The authority which we have chiefly followed -- a manuscript of old date, drawn up from the verbal testimony of individuals, some of whom had known Hester Prynne, while others had heard the tale from contemporary witnesses fully confirms the view taken in the foregoing pages. If by day they chanced to speak one word; by night, dumb men were both, so far as concerned the slightest verbal interchange.

Sex-Role Stereotyping in the Mass media. New York: Garland Press.Diplomatic correspondence is correspondence between one state and another and is usually of a formal character.
It follows several widely observed customs and style in composition, substance, presentation, and delivery and can generally be categorized into letters and notes.
Letters are correspondence between heads of statetypically used for the appointment and recall of ambassadors; for the announcement of the death of a sovereign or an accession to the throne; or for expressions of congratulations or condolence.
Letters between two monarchs of equal rank will typically begin with the salutation "Sir My Brother" or "Madame My Sister", in the case of a female monarch and close with the valediction "Your Good Brother" or Sister, in the case of a female monarch. In the case where one monarch is of inferior rank to the other for instance, if the Grand Duke of Luxembourg were to correspond with the Queen of the United Kingdomthe inferior monarch will use the salutation "Sire" or "Madame"while the superior monarch may refer to the other as "Cousin" instead of "Brother".
Letters of credence are worded carefully, as the sending or acceptance of a letter implies diplomatic recognition of the other government. A letter of recall is formal correspondence from one head-of-state notifying a second head-of-state that he or she is recalling his state's ambassador. In cases where an envoy is entrusted with unusually extensive tasks that would not be covered by an ordinary permanent legation such as the negotiation of a special treaty or convention, or representation at a diplomatic congressan envoy may be given full powers pleins pouvoirs "in letters patent signed by the head of the State" designing "either limited or unlimited full powers, according to the requirements of the case.
According to Satow's Diplomatic Practicethe bestowal of full powers traces its history to the Roman plena potestas ; its purpose. Their use at the present day is a formal recognition of the necessity of absolute confidence in the authority and standing of the negotiator. A note verbale can also be referred to as a third person note TPN. Notes verbale are written in the third person and printed on official letterhead; they are typically sealed with an embosser or, in some cases, a stamp.
All notes verbale begin with a formal salutationtypically: . The [name of sending state's] Embassy presents its compliments to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has the honor to invite their attention to the following matter. Notes verbales will also close with a formal valedictiontypically: .
The Embassy avails itself of this opportunity of assuring the Ministry of its highest consideration. Notes verbales composed by the British Foreign Office are written on blue paper. Ukrainian protest of the Annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation.
