Jason writes,
In nature, however, words emerged naturally with less creative force. I don't think there was much thought that went into the early tagging of concepts with sounds.
I am sorry, but here you lose me. To wit, it is not clear to me what is "in nature", nor how words "emerged naturally", nor why there was "less creative force" applied to the language.
