If a picture
is worth a thousand words
, then how many pictures
is one word
If you make each letter of the word into a picture itself, then a word might be worth the number of letters that it has.
Or if you include conjugates of the word, and synonyms of the word, and so forth, then a word could very well be worth a thousand pictures.
But wait a minute, that brings about the definition of "worth".... who is to determine what is worth something and what isn't? The wise men of the world are not going to waste their time deciding how many pictures one silly little word is worth!
