If you learn a language by reading it is easy to appear more eloquent and to make fewer mistakes in writing than your average native speaker who seldom puts a book in his hands. For instance you won't see many foreigners mistake you're and your or affect and effect simply because most of us didn't learn English aurally. But it takes years of language immersion until you can trick people into thinking that you are a native while having an actual conversation. Though luckily I met very few linguists yet who scrutinized my articulation enough or witnessed me slipping up to instantly uncover my deep dark secret. I wouldn't go so far though as to compare myself to Joseph Conrad...yet.

 


You are obviously a scholarly man. As a German intellectual, at what age were you first exposed to the works of Veronica Moser?
 


At what age? Pretty much the age I was 5 seconds ago. And here I was thinking I had learned my lesson to never google any of edmorel's cultural references...

 

Once again, edmorel, I leave this thread more confused than I would care for, but having glimpsed yet another tile in the rich mosaic that is your coprophilic history.

That's no excuse. You can edit the dimensions of the photo before posting. Change it to width = 500 and height = 900, and Bob's your uncle.

All I can say that just like clapey I was taught English orally (....) and alcoholically at the same time and that I think that you never stop learning. Subsistence farming over and out.
