  1. Mot

    In Ugaritic Mot 'Death' is personified as a god of death. The word is cognate with forms meaning 'death' in other Semitic and Afro-Asiatic languages: with Arabic موت mawt; with Hebrew מות; with Maltese mewt; with Syriac mautā; with Ge'ez mot; with Canaanite, Egyptian, Berber, Aramaic, Nabataean, and Palmyrene מות; with Jewish Aramaic, Christian Palestinian Aramaic, and Samaritan מותא; with Mandaean muta; with Akkadian mūtu; with Hausa mutuwa; and with Angas mut. The name of the god, in its abstract meaning of death, survives use in the English language in the game of chess, "mate". Mot 'Death', son of 'El, according to instructions given by the god Hadad to his messengers, lives in a city named hmry, a pit is his throne, and Filth is the land of her heritage. But Ba‘al warns them: that you not come near to divine Death, lest he made you like a lamb in his mouth, you both be carried away like a kid in the breach of his windpipe. Hadad seems to be urging that Mot come to his feast and submit himself to Hadad. Death sends back a message that his appetite is that of lions in the wilderness, like the longing of dolphins in the sea and he threatens to devour Ba‘al himself. In a subsequent passage Death seemingly makes good his threat, or at least is deceived into believing he has slain Ba‘al. Numerous gaps in the text make this portion of the tale obscure. Then Ba‘al/Hadad's sister, the warrior goddess ‘Anat, comes upon Mot, seizes him, splits him with a blade, winnows him in a sieve, burns him in a fire, grinds him between mill-stones and throws what remains on the field for the birds to devour.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Charles de LEUSSE:

    Death is the word that kills all the words. (La mort est un mot - Qui tue tous les mots)

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Ceux qui ne peuvent pas entendre la musique toujours rire avec mépris les étoiles de la danse, de penser les danseurs doivent être fou. Vous devez ignorer leur rire moqueur, enlevez vos chaussures, et continuer à danser comme il n'y a personne à regarder. Vous êtes la reine de la danse, et le dernier mot sera toujours la vôtre! Continuateur danse, étoile danser!

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Après la longue période de temps chaud et sec, est la première pluie de la saison la création d'un parfum exquis éloquente dans l'air - une odeur terreuse qui imprègne et flotte tout autour de nous, rafraîchissant nos esprits et de rajeunir nos vies. Je aime ce puissant parfum de séduction - émanant de l'union tant attendue de pluie tendre et douce tombe à terre soif sèche, et d'inciter une intimité instantanée dans l'air. Intéressant, cet élégant parfum envoûtant a un nom aussi. ça se appelle "petrichor"; un mot composé dérivé de la langue grecque - comprenant "petra" qui signifie «la pierre», et «ichor» qui signifie «le fluide qui coule dans les veines des dieux" selon la mythologie grecque. à mon avis, petrichor est sûrement un parfum divin qui doit être un cadeau du pouvoir suprême. Si ma vie était un parfum, je aurais sûrement l'aime à sentir comme Petrichor.
