>> The description of poetry as "weaving" (of words) is an old
Indo-European metaphor using the root *tekt- 'framework' *tekt(s)to:r
'carpenter' from which our word 'text' (< Latin) is an ultimate echo. We can
even reconstruct a IE syntagm *wékwos tekt- 'assemble the words'. (I can
send you bibliographical ref. if you're interested.) >>
Yes please. And thank you for the rest of your reply.
