a round for rocks and stones 2014-5


What is the difference between a rock and a stone? There are many answers that can be encountered if the question is presented. Some people think that the difference lies within the size of the material–a stone is small and can be picked up with one hand, whilst a rock is much bigger, needing two people or more. Others suggest that the defining quality can be found in the texture– a stone is smooth and a rock rough (an interesting linguistic note here is that this seems to be based in alliterative assumptions). Another view tells of the rock in use as a building material by humans becoming a stone, after all we have stone walls and facades however we also have rock features –which are made to look ‘natural’. It would seem that people cannot agree entirely, and that some form of affectual response is responsible attribution of these categorizations in an everyday way, ‘this feels like a rock’, and ‘that feels like a stone’.
