our life is permeated by mood, so if we are going to create an artifact of language that vibes with our life it should also be permeated with mood.

Thanks for a wonderful post! Hoping to write later with additional examples or ideas in response, but now I'd just like to wave agreement.

Matthew Duncombe

Excellent point Helen! I though also of Plato, who is the master of different moods: slapstick comedy in the Protagoras, broad bawdy humour in the Charmides, to pathos in the Apology, tragedy in the Phaedo, awe in the Timaeus.
