A Spurious Word
There are a total of six results for the source Glosbe, under the dictionary word entry vairations of 'polyphonous', which gives two results, 'polyphonically', 'polyphons', 'Polyphonic', and again in lower case as, 'polyphonic'
In addition to the reference above, the following three references are here cited, so that one can appreciate whether palimpest in all its relevant parts of speech is a spurious word. These four references exhaust the list of sources which have intruded on the web domain of palimpestical.page.tl, when using google, yet I understand they are not fully cited in my Bibliography.
Append to this reference, as its source: http://arthistory.berkeley.edu/documents/faculty_docs/davis/Abka.pdf.
I have no author's name, and I have not read the essay, however in the body of the author's essay the word 'palimpsests' was used at least once, preliminarily suggesting that palimpestical, was not an intended term here, at least. More reading, however, is required.
*** addendum ***
This resource has been removed from the web. I did not have a chance to read the author's essay on art history. I do not know if the author made a spelling mistake of the word palimpsest, or whether he was making a statement concerning the uncertain word palimpestical. I suppose the author is revising his work.
I do not doubt, with the will to do it that, the Jagiellonian University, which I assume is in Poland, can execute a more authoratative dictionary for two men in Poland and however a supportive community that endorses glosbe.com. I only wonder if Jageollonian University could make a spurious word in English their priority on behalf of one of their students, named Eszter Felvideki.
4. This reference source is worth quoting in its entirity, and clearly the word palimpestical is used, when one would expect the word to be the usual, palimpsestical. This leads one to wonder if the authors could be using palimpestical in the case of a revealing a forgery.
This reference comes from the archive of theses in the Jagiellonian University, authored by Malgorzata Sugiera and Mateusz Borowski. It is quoted and translated as,
|Wariacje na temat konstrukcji postaci w dramacie współczesnym: postaci wielogłosowe, zmultiplikowane figury, palimpsesty|
|Variations on the construction of contemporary forms of characters: polyphonical, multiplied, palimpestical types|
The word 'palimpsesty' consequently, may be in dispute.
**** Addendum *** The actual author of this Polish university's publication is Eszter Felvideki, and palimpsesty/palimpsest..., has damaged, in my own opinion at least, the authority of Glosbe.com.
The Polish word 'palimpsesty' as the author, Eszter Felvideki, uses it in her thesis, has been translated in English to the word, 'palimpestical', and is the source of incorrect citations in the Polish-English dictionary of Glosbe.com.
I hope that Eszter Felvideki, of the Jagiellonian University, in Poland, is able to defend her thesis.
I personally have no contact with the author of the thesis or the university, itself.
Before this website was constructed, and I was interested in writing poetry that I thought deserved more of a reputation than 'imitation', I came accross a little information about what palimpsests are. Thinking that I might name some of my writing after those, I sent four poems (not on this website) to "Oxford Poetry Magazine" edited by Lavinia Singer.
I have not heard back from that editor, but I have indicated by email, that I would like to contribute to Oxford Poetry, and asked whether she might know a department in Oxford, or some Faculty there, that might be helpful in ascertaining whether this is an instance of a spurious word that should be referenced at the university.
There is presently another reference from glosbe, which deserves inclusion here:
|Wariacje na temat konstrukcji postaci w dramacie współczesnym: postaci wielogłosowe, zmultiplikowane figury, palimpsesty||Variations on the construction of contemporary forms of characters: polyphonical, multiplied, palimpestical types|
|Polska wielogłosowa pieśń historyczna w XVI wieku.||Polish polyphonic historical song in the 16th century.
Kinsela, John. "The Poem As A Liminal-Place Moment". www.academia.edu: 2015.
***addendum*** The author's name is not Kinsela, John. It is Reed, Marthe, A.M., M.A. and the title, not including subtitle, of the thesis is as written above, wherein Kinsela, John is considered. See More Room For Guests.
"But it is in and through the written word, as especially poetry, that the process works best... And necessarily the writing, in its palimpestic layerings, dialogues..."
Palimpestic is here designated as an adjective with modifies the nouns 'layerings' and 'dialogues'.
It is possible that Mr. Kinsela is confusing the spurious word, 'palimpestic' with the more useful word 'palimpsestic'. While it is true that the more useful word 'palimpsestic' may have something to do with 'layerings'. It remains to be seen whether Mr. Kinsela has understand the word 'palimpsest' or 'palimpsestic' in the most recent brodest sense of the word. There are three types of Palimpsests that B. A. Ramsey has noted. They are:
*** addendum *** the above should be construed in respect to the previous addendum, and only understood with respect to the true author's name, which is Marthe Reed, A.M., M.A.
(i) Prognosticative Palimpsests: 'A Prognosticative Palimpsest' depends on a prior document that is effaced and overwritten through the supra-natural process of prognostication, the result of which is a new document, which leaves traces of the prior document in present day. With respect to this type of palimpsest the prior document remains extant. B. A. Ramsey has written literary examples of these palimpsests in both poetry and prose.
(ii) Liberal palimpsests: 'A Liberal Palimpsest' is one which fully erases a tradition with respect to the palimpsest's subject matter, in order to reveal new opinions and behaviour. With regards to this type of Palimpsest, there is a definite willingness to part with the past or tradition.
(iii) Textual Palimpsests: This type of Palimpsest depends on a prior document that is effaced and overwritten by recognizable methods of criticism in any field of interest, the result of which is a new docement, which leaves traces of the prior document in the present day. With respect to this type of palimpsest the prior document remains extant.
