That is precisely the point! The inutteral could be seen as what Plato referred to as "the Form" (antirealist), or what Aristotle called the "Universal" (realist)
I think that the fact that the schoolmen are able to reek havoc by understanding inutterals gives credence to the argument that they are master communicators and have developed a God like understanding of language. One could then say that the schoolmen are the most skilled of orators, and master rhetoricians because they are able to understand the "Form", or "Universal" of the actual word.
