    Vienna - for your benefit I have retrieved the post I was alluding to in my convoluted sentance that you had so much difficulty with.
    I sometimes become concerned at your lack of concentration, you answered this poster and yet you now completely forget the existence of it.
    Do not expect me to spoonfeed you next time when your attention becomes distracted. You are hard work sometimes :rolleyes:
    thats the post i was referring to, hence the fact i didnt understand the relevance of your comments.

    'alluding', 'convoluted'. bit big for you arent they?

    If you actually read the original post; it was perfectly relevant.

    Don't be patronising. It doesn't suit anyone. Much less you.

    An excuse comes about when one fails to accept a fact. Not something I'm accustomed to doing.

    I was well-educated in the useage of the English language - why use lots of small words when a longer one says exactly the same thing. If you don't understand the words then a dictionary is definitely useful - it also helps one to spell correctly

    You want precision... The latin word from which 'superb' is derived means -above all others-. Small words are more powerful if the individual has a more educated understanding. Why don't you just throw some biggy like exextenialism at me?

    I have never experienced someone who lives in this country, for whom English is not their first language, try to address me in anything other than English. I am at a loss to know where this idea of non-native English speakers speaking to us in their own language comes from!
    This is my post that Vienna found incomprehensible. It was in response to the post that I have highlighted already for her.
    It's structure is commonplace inasmuch as if one is being presented with a complex sentence as part of a higher level of testing comprehension, this is what to expect. My post was not contrived to test anyone's level of understanding but that is certainly the result!
    Many of the quuestions on the new admission test for Oxbridge are constructed in this manner. I guess Vienna would not be a candidate for Oxbridge then?
