(verb) Worldwide, as a verb, means “extending beyond the normal boundaries of time and space.” (Definition by Merriam Webster’s New dictionary) Now, you have made up your mind to buy a world globe, go on, make it attractive and present it with your home or office. You have done all that you can do to give it a Worldmark protection certificate. What is left for you? Nothing! Worldwide has no limits to its scope and as a word, it simply means “a whole lot.”
You are thinking that is a lot of boundaries but actually, there is only a very little part of the whole world that you are handling. It is just a piece of the whole, so to say, a portion that is quite large compared to other portions of the world. But do not be disheartened because that portion does comprise millions of people and businesses and they are all included in the term “whole worldwide.” Therefore, worldwide scope or “whole worldwide” is really big!
(verb) Worldwide, as an adjective, can be shortened to just “world.” And when we look into the matter from another angle, what makes a nation “wide” is the fact that it extends throughout the whole planet. If you look into this further, you will understand why “whole worldwide” is a very popular word these days.
In the future, you might want to use “whole worldwide” as a description of the upcoming World Peace Day celebration commemorating the end of World War III. In the past, there was one controversial UNESCO resolution to describe the forthcoming Decade as a “World War III”. Even though that particular resolution passed, there are still many people who are against using the adjective worldwide to describe any event or occurrence. Why is this so? Well, many people feel that the term is too strong and generic and could hurt some people’s feelings.
There are people out there that disagree with the fact that the word “whole” is an adjective. They feel that the word is limiting and could make it very hard for some to accept. The reality is that many people do not know the definition of the word “whole” and the word “world” could very well expand their understanding. It is very important that we educate ourselves about world peace, as it is our duty as citizens of the world to do so.
