Sometimes, the Castilian language presents words that lend themselves to multiple definitions. The verb lead , a word that derives from Latin I will direct, is one of them. By simply resorting to the dictionary of Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) , we will find ten different definitions of the term.
In this way, for example, the word direct refers to the action of straighten or of focus something towards a certain space or designated term. It also allows you to describe the process of guide , using the signs of a path for this.
In this sense we can establish this phrase so that the meaning we are referring to in the previous paragraphs is better understood: “The Egyptian History expert was the person to whom the authorities had commissioned him to direct all the excavations that were being undertaken. in the territory ”.
Directing has other uses in terms of spatial orientation, since it is used to place address indicating where and to whom a letter, box or package will be sent.
Regarding this last issue or meaning that we have made clear many could be the examples we used. However, a simple and easily understandable one is this that we present below: "The professional of the urgent transport company took note of where the package should go."
Of course, the concept is also used in a broader sense, related to the effort to order . So, directing is carry operations towards a certain end, give advice to direct the conscience of an individual, guide who performs a certain activity and apply a saying or a fact A person.
When an artist dedicates a work of ingenuity, he is said to direct it. The same when a person is in charge of mark a certain artistic orientation to the components of an orchestra, a play or a material of the seventh art, for example. The director assumes the responsibility of carrying out the work he has chosen to stage. In the case of movie theater , a director is the professional who is in charge of guiding the actresses and actors that are part of the cast, of selecting the location of the cameras, supervising the sets where each scene will be shot and who assumes responsibility for all the tasks that are required to realize the artistic project.
A verb that concerns us that, as we see, is the origin of the term "director" that is used very frequently in the different artistic fields mentioned and that comes to refer to all those who are in charge of a representation or work. Thus, for example, we could talk about professionals who occupy that position, such as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Alejandro Amenábar or Pedro Almodóvar.
The latter is an emblem of the cinema that takes place in Spain, which is known in the world for being “a true teacher when it comes to directing its actors to express all the feelings and sensations he wants to see reflected on the big screen "
Finally we can mention that directing is related to the action of govern , govern and set the rules for handling a company , organization or dependence .
The last fact to underline this verb that we have been analyzing in depth is that it is also usually used pronominally.
