Abstracts
Language, as a system of communication, usually does not tolerate two different words that would have exactly the same meaning. The reason why modern Polish words lek and lekarstwo, both meaning medicine, are still used, even though they mean exactly the same thing, is that originally they meant something else, and the process of approximation of their meanings was long and complicated enough for the language not to be able to eliminate the unnecessary one.
