Do your speaking style vary depending on language you use


#1

In Finnish I have much interesting expressions and in English I speak nicely and politely. You do not understand this but here it is any way ‘Amerikkalainen akka tappoi kissat’. Comatose may understand.


#2

Do you think you could get any more in my face with your overt nationalism? I think I need to be reminded again how great you are.

Ave.

You know despite having been told all my life that language is where I am gifted I to this day speak only one of them. I must have taken at least three years of French in elementary school and literally picked up oh…three words of it. Never much of a student over here.

Come to think of it for someone who tests strongly in the language department I was never a huge fan of the finer points of grammar either. Took some Latin in high school and it was all grammar this and grammatical that. As far as I was ever concerned if you managed to coherently get your point across then language has served it’s purpose.

But yeah, merely a simple monolinguist here.

Yes I got it.

I use language pretty much the same. BUT I swear in finnish. I can easily shift between languages. As if someone addresses me in finnish I don’t have to think what to say, it just pops out.

some of the most exciting writing… writing that you remember… subtly breaks a lot of grammatical rules… it doesn’t flow the same because it does break a little rule here and there and that catches our attention.

I think a good writer is one that knows the rules to break and how to still get the point across. I really don’t know of any popular author that is perfectly grammatically correct.

Flat tone, regardless of language.
