LANGUAGE is the happy medium of a free and easy correspondence between neighbours, of a lesser or greater extent, as kingdoms and nations.
Antient and modern languages have, some of them a larger, and some a smaller stock of words.
The language, which consists of a sew, or a smaller stock of words, often applies the same word to different things, for want of different words to express things which differ.
To supply the want of words in a language, words ©f a neighbouring sense are often borrowed, which are called figures.
