Upon what ground?

Ground is such a great flexible word. First, it is one of those words that just SOUNDS right for what it is. It is earthy and round and gritty. Second, it is so rich in possible meanings. Earth and cause, reason and probabilities are all connected to Earth, probably – that is metaphorical things on which something stands are also grounds. And as a verb, it turns something to earth.
Also it is very pleasurable to say.
