Sorry, no etymologies found.
So I'll join them here as a new, different word, and say that a double-tongued word wrester is one who finds a home in more than one language and who draws forth words from the zeitgeist like plucking drowning sailors from the sea, or like pulling thorns from the paw of a lion, or like picking blackberries from the brierpatch.
