on writing


To say (or to write) "I’m a writer", or "I’m writing about" for that matter, is pointless
and therefore I say: "I write"
since in doing so I’m ‘thinking’ in the manner of an English writer or speaker
would. I am that I am, and I do what I do.
 
In learning English as a foreign language, a lnon-native speaker should strive for two things:
 
     * to think the way an English person might (by coming to terms with the ‘logic’ behind English syntax)
     * to enunciate to the best of ability the sounds of an English person (those which make English what it is:
        a rhythmic, time-stressed based language)
 
analysing the grammar aspects can also be of great help, not only in learning
how one’s own mother tongue works, but also in that it supports the Learning Process itself.

Ever have an idea or gut feeling, which you feel may have been mediated, for which there is no proof yet you feel nevertheless is valid and important enough to share? I put these down on blog to rid myself of them - it is a question of freedom of speech, and freedom of thought, and freedom from religious persecution.
