Duvija, your reply is kind of comforting, or relieving (que alivia, tranquilizadora) , reassuring. Really helpful to know that it is a "the language painted itself in a linguistic corner".
Thanks InfoJack too!
I'm glad it helped. I was always told by my Linguistics professors, that when there is something you really don't understand, no matter how much you try, it may not be your fault at all. Languages are not perfect (and can't be, if created by humans).
