RE2: Taming of the Shrew - Shrew, Do Not Make Denial

I completely agree. Language often possesses a greater "reality" than the reality it purports to convey. This, and what you say below, puts me in mind of Marshall McLuhan's line, "We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us." Language is, arguably, our greatest tool, yet the extent to which it has become divorced from what we might call truth in today's discourse (and at moments in this play) generates a violence that is potentially far more disturbing than physical blows.
