There comes a tense of word, a grammatical accentuation that points it one direction or another, a bit like interpreting law. Take a judge who must interpret laws, old laws, laws where one word may not exist any longer, while another word may have by now 700 definitions. How is one to categorize them all? What is easier? To surrender? Of course not, but one may submit to an iron martial law, rather than go through the tediousness it takes to figure it all out.
