English is the most plastic, the most changing and changable language there is. I think. An educated Spaniard can read El Cid in the original, a Frenchman can read the Chanson de Roland, and so on. How many of us can read Chaucer with any accuracy, much less Beowulf. As long as our language changes as fast as it does, meanings will be slippery things.
