Besides, the image of the cloth that adorned Buffon while he wrote is there to keep us inattentive. : Quoted in The Truth of Man Is in the Language : 21st November 2018 :  Katty Langelez-Stevens : Circulated on NLS Messenger : Available http://www.amp-nls.org/page/gb/49/nls-messager/0/2018-2019/3442
