      §3. But though the Market and Exchange must be left to their
own ways of Talking, and Gossippings not be robb’d of their
ancient Privilege: though the Schools, and Men of Argument

length, or lessen the number of their Disputes; yet, methinks those,
who pretend seriously to search after, or maintain Truth, should think
themselves obliged to study, how they might deliver themselves
without Obscurity, Doubtfulness, or Equivocation, to which Men’s
Words are naturally liable, if care be not taken.
Locke Hum III, 11, §3, p. 509
