I enjoyed reading your commentary here.

I agree that we would do well to find a new relation to language "in which our speaking is in a constant state of wonder." And much to wonder about there is. Words tell us about our history... including, I have no doubt, very ancient history - reflected in not only words but, indeed, each letter-symbol-sound. Not that this book goes back that far, but I found it really interesting:

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
