Ours choice of words are so vulnerable and weak. It’s always been the case as far as mankind could remember. People grossly misinterpret words on daily basis because there’s no accountability if they do. People even abuse words when they felt the need to misguide other. For that reason, scholars after scholars created grammar rules after rules in their desperate but foolish effort to try and strengthen the words, failing to realize that words were without souls. Words are not living things. ~ Barry Sewell
