Words reside alone in time and space; Only sentient minds their roots trace. Etymologists bring accents, forms to the surface; Lexicographers establish a chronological base. In dark, library basements, archivists file in database; In academic institutes, linguists their value appraise. Calligraphers, Engravers with artistic touch glaze. Phrases the syntactical bridge brace, and cultured interlocutor platforms grace. Idioms the colloquial strains do lace; Sages their poignant advice encase. Ethnographers stride where lingua francas interface. Truisms sculpt a vernacular face; Politicians their trite maxims raise.
