Sometimes it seems the English language can aggravate those not from my lovely complicated land.

Last Updated on

As you probably know, dear reader, I’m English. That means I was born into the English language. I learned the language the natural way from birth and then honed my skills at my Grammar school where I studied the English Language as well as English Literature. I’m a natural, along with a few million others. Some of us are more proficient than others, and regional dialects can sometimes complicate a foreigner’s understanding of the language. And sometimes it seems the English language can aggravate those not from my lovely complicated land.

It’s not just the spelling, which can be a little twisted and convoluted making it hard to maneuver around some words and sentences. But it’s also because we have some words we use in multiple settings. Take the word bank for example. We have:-

  • Banks on our rivers.
  • Banks for our words.
  • Banks where we store sand.
  • Banks covered in green grass.
  • Banks of computers.
  • Banks where we store money.

Welcome to my language writers of the world, I’m banking on your understanding.
