Nicholas Moore

Nicholas Moore was an English poet, associated with the New Apocalyptics in the 1940s, whose reputation stood as high as Dylan Thomas’s. He dropped out of the literary world. Moore was born in Cambridge, the elder child of the philosopher G. E. Moore and Dorothy Ely, his paternal uncle was the poet and critic Thomas Sturge Moore, his maternal grandfather was OUP editor and author George Herbert Ely and his brother was the composer Timothy Moore. He was educated at the Dragon School in Oxford, Leighton Park School in Reading, the University of St Andrews, Trinity College, Cambridge. Moore was editor and co-founder of a literary review, while still an undergraduate. Seven, Magazine of People's Writing, had a complex history: Moore edited it with John Goodland. While in Cambridge Moore became involved with literary London, in particular Tambimuttu, he published pamphlets under the Poetry London imprint in 1941. This led to Moore becoming Tambimuttu's assistant. Moore worked for the Grey Walls Press.

In the meantime he had registered as a conscientious objector. The Glass Tower, a selected poems collection from 1944, appeared with illustrations by the young Lucian Freud. In 1945 he edited The PL Book of Modern American Short Stories, won Contemporary Poetry's Patron Prize for Girl with a Wine Glass. In 1947 he won the Harriet Monroe Memorial Prize for various other poems. Moore encountered difficulty in publishing, his association with the "romantics" of the 1940s was, in fact, rather an inaccurate reflection of his style. In the 1950s he worked as a horticulturist. In 1968 he entered 31 separate pseudonymous translations of a single Baudelaire poem, in a competition for the Sunday Times, run by George Steiner; each translation focused on a different element of the poem: rhyme, tropes, etc. producing vastly different results, to illustrate the inadequacies and lacunae produced in translation. This work was published in 1973 as Spleen. Longings of the Acrobats, a selected poems volume, was edited by Peter Riley and published in 1990 by Carcanet Press.

An interview with Riley concerning Moore's rediscovery and years appears as a documentary element within the "Guilty River" chapter of Iain Sinclair's novel Downriver. According to Riley, Moore was prolific and left behind many unpublished poems. An example of one of Moore's "pomenvylopes" – idiosyncratic documents consisting of poems and comments typed onto envelopes and posted to friends and acquaintances – appears online at The Fortnightly Review, his Selected Poems was published by Shoestring Press in 2014.

Cantonese nasal-stop alternation

In Cantonese phonology, a close relationship exists between the nasal codas and the stop codas. These two types of codas can be classified into three homorganic pairs: the bilabial m/p, the dental n/t, the velar ŋ/k, their close association is best evidenced by the fact that all stop sounds come from nasal sounds. Apart from phonetical association, we find that the homorganic pairs are semantically related. For some characters with syllables ending in nasals, there are semantically similar characters which have the hormorganic stops. For example, both dam3 揼 and “dap1” 耷 means ‘to hang down’; the initial consonants and the vowels of the alternating pair are identical while the terminal nasal /–m/ and stop /–p/ are a homorganic pair. In Cantonese phonology, this interesting phenomenon is known as nasal-stop alternation an alternation of homorganic consonants between nasal and stop finals. In other dialects, it could be oral-stop alternation. Regarding the initial consonants, a few items may alternate between aspirated and unaspirated initial stops, e.g. “kim4” 拑 ‘to pinch’ and “gip6” 挟 ‘to squeeze together’.

As for tones, high or low tones on syllables with nasal codas correspond to high or low tones on syllables with stop codas, e.g. “ngam4” 吟 ‘to grumble’ has a low tone whereas “ngap1” 噏 ‘to babble’ has a high tone. Many of these characters are colloquial verbs which lack standard Chinese characters as their written forms. For example, we don’t have a accepted character for “jip3”, ‘to pickle in salt’; the hormorganic character “jim1” 腌 is used to represent both syllables. The same is true for ‘‘doeŋ3’’ 啄 ‘to peck’ being used to stand for ‘‘doek1’’ as well; as for their semantics or usage, the paired characters are not equivalent or interchangeable in every case. The colloquial verb “kam2” 冚 seems to be more used than the corresponding “kap1” 扱, both meaning ‘to cover on top’. On the other hand, “fiŋ6” 捹 and “fik6” 扐 both mean ‘to throw away. Most linguists believe that the syllables with nasal codas are the more basic originals while the stops are the colloquial variants. A few opine that there are an equal number of word pairings that are originated from the syllables with stop codas.

However, it is agreed that the usage of the nasal members are less restricted than their stop counterparts. Other linguists regard the alternation between homorganic final consonants in pairs of semantically-related words as a feature found among languages of Southeast Asia as well as south China; such paired words belong to a “word-family”, a term first used by Bernhard Karlgren to refer to sets of words with similar sound in Archaic Chinese that were related in meaning, representing relics of morphological processes. Bauer notes that the Cantonese phenomenon is believed to be a remnant of an ancient word-derivation process, now no longer productive, in which different types of suffixes were attached to lexical roots. In the Cantonese syllabary, there are about 50 pairs of such characters that show alternation between homorganic nasal and stop codas; the following is a list of some examples for reference: Modern Cantonese Phonology by Robert S. Bauer and Paul K. Benedict Homorganic Nasal/Stop Alterations in Cantonese by Benjamin K.
