“Deponent Verb” is a verb active in meaning, but passive or middle in form.
The meaning of “Deponent” is not visible in the single form;
but in the contexts with “the other”,
its meaning will be revealed.
I think, we are also “The Deponent”,
sometimes we are just silence, do nothing (passive),
but all of these have a “active meaning”
that we “do something” for that moment.
The thing that we do, it doesn’t have a visible meaning in the single form
but in the contexts with “The Other” (in the presence of God and others) the meaning is revealed.
