so, this has been on my mind for a couple weeks now...
1.a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds,
that functions as a principal carrier of meaning
1.a body of words and the systems for their use common to a people
1.the sound or sounds uttered through the mouth of living creatures
1.the faculty or power of speaking; oral communication;
ability to express one's thoughts and emotions by speech sounds and gesture
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world."
I just don't think I am going to look up
the same way again...
