Given a chance, language would try to kill us.
Words and phrases strung together to create brilliant sentences and paragraphs by the equally brilliant word-smiths behind them, who, in their engineering prowess, have only a limited idea of the effect of those words.
Not that language could kill us, but it would try.
Words and phrases gathered together and made coherent by commas, apostrophes, and exclamation points to create morsels of communication that only sometimes generate the idea behind the sentences and paragraphs.
And try as it might, language will never win.
Words and phrases jumbled, mixed, diced, and fried together in a sauce pan of conflicting idea and thought which has nullified and neutered the meaning of words and language.
Taken the chance, we have killed language.
