  The Wings to Awakening: Glossary
Various English words have been suggested as renderings for sankhara - such as "formation", "determination", "force", and "construction" - but "fabrication", in both of its senses, as the process of fabrication and the fabricated things that result, seems the best equivalent for capturing the connotations as well as the denotations of the term.
Unbinding: Because nibbana is used to denote not only the Buddhist goal, but also the extinguishing of a fire, it is usually rendered as "extinguishing" or, even worse, "extinction".
According to the commentaries, the literal meaning of the word nibbana is "unbinding" and as this is a rare case where the literal and contextual meanings of a term coincide, this seems to be the ideal English equivalent.

 Earthsea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Earthsea is a fictional realm that was created by Ursula K. Le Guin for her short story "The Word of Unbinding", published in 1964, but became more famous in her novel A Wizard of Earthsea, first published in 1968.
The word "tolkien" never actually appears in any Earthsea book, but the word "sukien" (composed from "suk", feather, and "-ien", meaning "feather of the sea") does, and thus it is easy to theorise the existence of the word "tolkien".
The similarity between this word and J.R.R. Tolkien's surname is most probably pure coincidence, although it would make for an interesting way for Le Guin to pay homage to another famous fantasy writer.

 On the word 'God'
The generations have laid the burden of their anxious lives upon this word and weighed it to the ground; it lies in the dust and bears their whole burden.
Human beings with their religious factions have torn the word to pieces; they have killed for it and died for it, and it bears their finger marks and their blood.
We cannot cleanse the word 'God' and we cannot make it whole; but, defiled and mutilated as it is, we can raise it from the ground and set it over an hour of great care.

 1. The Runic Mysteries
The word was used by the early Germanic people themselves, as well as by the Romans, when referring to that script.
We see the word for runic character in Runic Old Norse as "runar," Old Icelandic and Faroese as "run," Swedish as "runa," Danish and Norwegian as "runa" and in Middle High German and Anglo-Saxon as "run." This is the same word seen earlier as also meaning mystery.
The word "rune" and its variants are inevitably tied into the Germanic traditions of occultism and witchcraft.

The first word translated 'loosed' in First Corinthians 7:27 is the Greek 'lusin,' meaning 'a release from the marriage bond, a divorce.' The second word translated 'loosed' in verse 27 is the Greek 'lelusai,' and it is the subject of controversy.

 biology - Gene
The word "gene" is shared by many disciplines, including classical genetics, molecular genetics, evolutionary biology and population genetics.
Following the discovery that DNA is the genetic material, and with the growth of biotechnology and the project to sequence the human genome, the common usage of the word "gene" has increasingly reflected its meaning in molecular biology.
The influence of such variations on the trajectory of evolution through natural selection may be as large as or larger than variation in sequences that encode proteins.

 Maxey Eleven
The word that Paul uses is the Greek luo which Vine defines as 'to loose, unbind, release.' In order for a man to be loosed, unbound, or released from a wife, he must necessarily have been bound to one previously and then loosed by divorce or her death.
It was a common word, and Paul undoubtedly knew of it.
Both essentially acknowledge that the word signifies a loosing and untieing and unbinding from that which had previously been bound or united, and even that the passage alludes to a union of husband and wife, however they seek to free themselves from the more obvious interpretation (divorce) by declaring this phrase "figurative" rather than literal.

For Milton, subjective experience, not a doctrinal formula of words, is the key to faith, and Mediaeval "realism," which assumes the participation of words in the extramental reality they signify, is not part of the consciousness which produced Paradise Lost.
The Word, in a Christian sense, is a primary archetype which for Tolkien both spiritualizes and revalidates for man the extramental world of history and material extension.
