Telephone in Motion
 "Automobile,"
in C. K. Ogden's word list,
is an international word.
It is generally used for an
engine-powered,
self-moving, carriage.

"Auto," in fact,
is "self," and
"mobile" is
about things with "motion."

The word "carriage,"
is now made short as
"car."



If you see that
"automobile" is something with the
power to put oneself in motion or
keep oneself moving,
it will not be hard for you to
get the idea of "mobile."

The small notebook computer
to go with you
is a "mobile computer."

The small telephone
to be used in your hand
is a "mobile phone."


There are more and more users
of these small talking machines
with the power to get and send out
electric waves.
Most of mobile phones
have an Internet connection.

Some mobile phones, moreover,
make you able to take pictures.
They go by the name of
"camera-phones."
