Language analysis: Christoper Higgs

Language is the atmospheric anomaly our fingers and tongues make happen

por Christopher Higgs
El lenguaje es la excentricidad atmosférica que nuestros dedos y lenguas hacen ocurrir
Date cuenta del cantar de las líneas telefónicas suspendidas, la vibración de antenas de los carros dados ciertas rapideces medias espantosas. --un fenómeno similar, eolian, es ‘flutter’, por causa de vórtices abajo de los cables...

Consider the singing of suspended telephone lines or the vibration of a car antenna at certain mid-gruesome speeds. (A similar aeolian phenomenon is “flutter,” caused by vortices on the leeward side of the wire, distinguished from “gallop” by its high-frequency, low-amplitude motion.) To do so would be synonymous with considering the Kármán vortex street: a term in fluid dynamics for a repeating pattern of swirling vortices caused by the unsteady separation of a fluid’s flow over bluff bodies.
