MEANING OF DAWN

MEANING OF DAWNThe noun that concerns us now we have to establish that it has its etymological origin in Latin. Specifically, it derives from "albor", which is synonymous with "whiteness".

According to DigoPaul, the term dawn is used to name the sapwood: the absolute or ideal whiteness. By extension, it called Albor to the brightness of the sunrise and the beginning of something. The concept is also used in the plural (dawn) with the same meaning.

For example: "My great-grandfather was an important figure at the dawn of national independence", "Historians try to increase knowledge about the dawn of livestock", "The Italian team stood out at the dawn of the new century, winning five titles international in three years ”.

The dawn, in this way, is associated with the moment or the period when something begins to develop. Suppose a journalist wants to conduct an investigation into the process that led to a city being chosen to host the Olympics. To carry out his work, he first begins to study how the project arose, who came up with the idea of ​​promoting the application, what were the first diagrams or diagrams that were developed, etc. In this way, it could be said that all this part of the journalistic investigation is focused on the dawn of the choice of the town as the Olympic venue. Without these first steps, the later stage would not have been reached.

Within the cultural field we find a relevant work that bears in its title the word that we are now addressing. We are referring to the documentary "The Dawn of Humanity", which is from 2014 and has an American origin.

In the same way, it is also frequent to speak of the dawn of science, that is, of the starting point of that. In this case, we can state that there is even a book entitled that term. This is a 1985 publication by Thomas Goldstein.

In the cultural field, on the other hand, there is talk of the dawn of literature in different fields. In this way, for example, the dawn of science fiction is determined to be Jules Verne and Edgar Allan Poe.

Approximately one hour lasts that document that comes to try to bring us closer to the starting point of the human being. Hence, it uses as a common thread a set of fossils that have been found over the years and that come to contribute a series of relevant ideas about the origin of man.

The idea of ​​dawn is also frequently used with reference to the first years of a person's life. Children and adolescents, in this sense, are going through the dawn of their existence: when they reach adulthood, they will be able to take childhood and adolescence as the first stages of life.

We can also emphasize that Albores is the name of an important restaurant in the town of Jerez de la Frontera, which is located in the province of Cádiz.
