This has commonly been referred to as a "Polish inferiority complex" by the British expats who visit this forum as well as the British-born children of the post-war Polish émigrés to the UK.
Well, I would call it modesty.
Yet these above sentences of yours seem to disclose what may well be called a "superiority complex". Will you please stop patronising other people in this rather annoying way!
I'm sorry, Ziemowit, but it's you who must have a "superiority complex" if you thought that such basic things had to be explained to people here.
Yes, yes, there's a good girl! We all know by now how talented person in languages and pronounciation you are.
What's wrong, Ziemowit? Is it getting on your nerves? :)
Because that's what Wlodzimierz is doing in almost every language thread on this forum. Do you realise that?
You are writing about it in almost every language thread.
Nope, I'm writing about it only in this thread :) And only because Wlodzimierz doubted my ability in discerning whether someone is speaking English with an accent or not and whether I can say if someone is saying "w" or "v" when speaking English lol
So I wanted him to realise that there are other people beside him who maybe have some gift of pronouncing and hearing things right :)
Yes, "obsessing" is a word that you can safely re-address to yourself. And I am not joking here at all !
What am I obsessing over exactly? :D
My style of writing is literate and my words well chosen. Kindly don't project your own mediocre English writing if it doesn't measure up to my level!
That's what I'm talking about :) You seem quite full of yourself.
My English writing will always be "mediocre" in comparisment to that of the native speakers.
However, I can see a difference between your style of writing and of all the native speakers of English on this forum.
For someone it may be "literate with words well chosen", for others it may be pretentious and irritating - I don't really care about that.
All I'm saying is - considering that your writing style isn't typical for many native speakers of English, it's simply unfair on your part to judge the style of non-native speakers of English so harshly and call it "primitive".
Your English actually isn't half bad, I must admit. There are mistakes however. You presumably aren't an English teacher, so you're "forgiven".
Why thank you, kind sir, you're simply too gracious lol
Listen, Wlodzimierz, I think you're an OK person in general, there are worse people than you on this forum lol, I have no grudge against you. It's just that obsession of yours and your attitude is irritating. I think you should, as we say in Poland, "spuścić trochę z tonu" and maybe even people will start talking to you in their native languages ;)
