etymography

Words: the building blocks of language. To me, that analogy suggests further extensions. Is an author an architect? A printer a builder? What of the reader then? Do they inhabit the structures of language? Are they residents or visitors? Perhaps they wander endless streets which link every word ever written, without ever calling one of them home, not even their own name. Then again, perhaps a metaphor may only be extended so far.

labyrinthine
lost in the words
not their meanings
