How can meaning be created


create vb ‘Produce, shape’ and (especially southern Germany) ‘work, bring about’. The strongly inflected verb (with j-present tense) ahd.skephen '(he) create, (affect), shape, order, fix' and also '(water) scoop' (8th century) developed (from the participle form giscaffan ) a new present tense stem with the infinitive mhd.schaffen, nhd.schaffen (created, created). Related are asächs.skeppian '(he) create, determine', aengl.scieppan '(he) create, form, arrange, make', got.gaskapjan 'create', also ↗schaben, ↗Schaff, ↗Schaft, ↗Sheffel (sd ) and the word forms mentioned there, so that, starting from a meaning 'carving design', connection to the variant ie. * skā̌b (h) - the root ie. * (s) kē̌p-, * (s) kō̌p-, * (s) kā̌p- 'cut, split' with a sharp tool is possible. Next to the strong verb ahd.skephen (see above) there is an identical, weak jan verb ahd.skephen ‘(er) create, shape, form’ and ‘(water) scoop’ (8th century); both verbs seem to have mixed up semantically with each other (for more see öpfenschopf). Furthermore, to the strong verb there is the weakly inflected intensive formation ahd.scaffōn 'do, form, bring about, arrange' (8th century), mhd.schaffen, nhd.schaffen (created, created), their infinitive and present forms in Mhd. and Nhd. coincide with those of the strong verb above. The basic meaning of the strong verb today is ‘sth. bring forth, cause ’, to start with the weak verb from a basic meaning‘ set up, order ’(further‘ arrange, be active, work, bring, bring away ’). Strong and weak flexion show mnd.scheppen, mnl.sceppen and English to shape (with the part. Prät. Shaped and, however, seldom and older, shapen). To the weak verb to put oneself (even with partly strong inflection up to the 16th century) abolish vb. ‘Pick up, remove’, mhd.abeschaffen (14th century), south d. Also ‘work off’; to acquire vb ‘Sth. take possession of, appropriate '(16th century),' arrange, cause '(15th century); procure1 Vb Holen fetch, get ’(15th century); cf. ahd.biscaffōn ‘design, form’ (8th century); procure against it2 Part.adj. 'kind, formed, located' (15th century), mhd. “present, determined by fate”, to (predominantly strongly inflected) mhd.provided ”(to) create, be determined or assigned, order, manage, bring about '. The strong verb belongs to create vb. ‘Let arise, design, shape’, common since the 16th century; to recreate vb ‘Recreate in a creative way’ (18th century), Buy afterwards ’(17th century). Achieve f. ‘Achievement, (great) matter’, newly formed verbal abstract of youth language (20th century); before (without direct successor) mhd.schaffe ‘order, command’. Conductor m. ‘Procurer, steward, overseer, administrator’, mhd.schaffenære, scheffenære, after the previous schaffære, scheffære, ahd.scaffāri (around 1000). Since the 19th century, almost exclusively for the operating and supervisory staff at the railways and post offices, see post conductors, railway conductors.

'whoever creates something, shapes', also designation of the Christian God as the creator of the world, ahd.skephāri (9th century), mhd.schepfære, schephære (cf. ahd.skepho, 8th century. ); creative adj. ‘shaping, creating new things’ (18th century); Creation f.
