Related work: The Hyphenation of Americans

A list of hyper-re-hypenated words culled from a) Sarat Maharaj’s essay “Xeno-Epistemics: Makeshift Kit for Sounding Visual Art as Knowledge Production and the Retinal Regimes,” provides the first half of the newly augmented hyphenated compound word and b) from Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans provides the second half. All of the hyphenated words in Maharaj’s essay appear here (256), thus only the first 256 (out of 3107) of Stein’s book are included. In the case of Stein’s book they are the words that need to be hyphenated because they do not fit on a line. In the case of Maharaj’s text the hyphenated terms are found throughout the text irregardless of whether they appear to enable a line break.

An earlier version of this text piece was presented at the Sound Art Curating conference at Goldsmith’s and the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, UK, May 15-17, 2014. This was presented at a panel on Friday May 16 at Goldsmiths. On that occasion a simple powerpoint file was shown with these word constructions and I read them out loud re-un-scrambled (in other words, how they appear in their respective original sources). So, for example the first line becomes: “harmless extrarapid.”
