or is the ism in the axiom?
For this word to mean a reference to the particular pattern of w-o-r-d, and indeed linked to a particular word – it has to come in a sequence.
One lingo might have WordThis
Another lingo might have ThisWord
In one lingo this = sequence T-O
In another lingo the sequence = Z-E
However, the UNIVERSAL, seems that we have sequences on top of which meanings may be attached and significances appear.
In that sense, while The MEANINGS and Significance/s of this word might differ between cultures, contexts and people – the life of the sequence, like that of 1 + 1, is the same on earth and on alpha satori.. Indeed all the way there.. no..?
