    English and Patois Creole
  1. It happens to me yup. Every time I go off into a phase of reading, I always need a dictionary by my side. Or...on my computer. lol.
  2. I'm wondering why this is the case in Ireland. Why is it that it's so difficult for Irish to excel in English at an early age? Is it because of the lack of similarity in sounds of English words to Irish words? It's good that English is mandatory there.
  3. It's the same situation in my country. It's unavoidable. The world is one such that it's language queen is seemingly English.
  4. Wow..commendable. It speaks volumes as to your mental ability and capacity; as well as volumes concerning the environment in which your parents or guardians grew you up.
  5. It was actually from birth that I started to learn the English language. We speak Creole in Jamaica, but there are some parents that teach their children standard English. I had such a parent. My mom did a good job in teaching me. I also learnt from kindergarten and also from watching TV
  6. It seems to me that we are all saying that you are more poetic when we are younger? We're saying that since we grew up, life has simply become more busy and we find more time for pleasures such as watching the television?
  7. Yes, the value of it is depleting. You see this is the sales that are made per year on Amazon, when it comes on to literature pieces. it's not going to be lost entirely though, in my opinion. There will always be a new generation of poets.
  8. It's beneficial in the context of which it is being used. If your wife is poetic, then poetry would be a good tool in capturing her heart every now and then. If she is not, then...Also, if you want to send a message and you won't have the time to read a whole article to the audience or to even speak from your mind, then put it in poetry.
  9. Well, you are right in your assumption. I just researched the word antithesis and it's meaning is exactly what it sounds like.
  10. Your guess is as good as mine. I wouldn't go with thesis. That's self-explanatory. Neither hypothesis, because it means hypothesizing or assuming. A synthesis suggests a mixture of any kind of ideas. Antithesis suggest the combination of different ideas.
  11. I believe my English has improved dramatically. So much so, that I've started working on ebooks. I'm in dire need on publishers. Can anyone recommend any of the good publishers you may know? I heard Amazon is one.
  12. Oh. I see what you're saying. The mind is a perfectionist in itself. It is trying to find the perfect words all the time. When you're speaking however, the perfect word or phrase become of less emphasis being that you are being prompted to express yourself in a limited time space.
  13. Oh yea...that's definitely true. Language is something that is instinctive and automatic...well, it eventually becomes such. So, that explains it. You work with what comes to mind first when you are speaking, and not with what it may be when you're completely ignorant.
  14. Wow, cool explanation. Very concise and to the point. I see that you can understand and relate to what I was talking about. I'm not alone. Lol. :grin:
  15. Nothing is wrong if that's your situation. Most people are like this anyway. Persons learning a foreign language find it much easier to write than to speak in the language (especially if they have photographic or pictorial memory). :grin:
