“X” is for xenagogue
Xenagogue stands for a guide.
Guide means one who shows the way by leading, directing, or advising such as a guide dog leading the blind.
As a pamphlet, or book that offers basic information or instruction such as the Bible is a wonderful guide book for Life.
A device, such as a ruler, tab, or bar, that serves as an indicator or acts to regulate a motion or operation such as a guide on a saw table.
My ex-husband was a Vietnamese linguist in the service. I used to help him with flash cards and let me tell you the same word with different symbols could mean several different things especially when you consider the various dialects of different regions. Very confusing.
Language is complicated.
