Besides that, sometimes a person thinks "Why must I repeat a word which is a foreign word, which is a strange word to me? If the word suggests something, why must I not use a word which is in my language, which comes easy for me to repeat?"

If anyone asks me how I see modern languages, I will humbly say they are the corruptions of the ancient languages.
