1) Language as Act[1]

2) alternative venue[2]

3) an object no more permanent[3]

4) life[4]

5) explode[5]

6) unlovely[6]

7) cheap[7]

[1] A statement that is urgent to the declarer even though it might put the declarer in an awkward or dangerous position.

[2] An alternative venue is kind of like when someone's work gets rejected from a renowned weekly and is tossed in the garbage; then an intern takes it out of the garbage and says this is not garbage, this is worth reading, and then publishes it in a magazine but doesn't tell his bosses at the magazine he interns for in case they might get mad and fire him, also changing the name of the renowned weekly to the Renowned Weekly.

[3] We try to forget what we see or how we see it.

[4] It's continuous, contiguous, and traceable.

[5] What a bomb does.

[6] We will work hard to ensure you do not see the following words or phrases, or words or phrases like them: glimmer, shimmer, swaths, bleating, said flatly, beads of sweat, strange, tussle, clouded, glares, beamed, throbbed, grasped, lapis lazuli, gem, flew out of her hand.

[7] Print versions won't cost a lot, will cost, in fact, very little compared to other literary journals. We intend for lots of people to get it and enjoy it.
