Is it sensible to talk about language and not specify what the language
is? Note that it is even worse if you are talking about two languages.
It your claim about the truth value of cGC about expressions in some
particular language? If so, which language?

Sorrow in all lands, and grievous omens.
Great anger in the dragon of the hills,
And silent now the earth's green oracles
That will not speak again of innocence.
