something i struggle with is finding ways to express myself in regards to (a niche subject matter) without having to use (what i consider: a crude amount of language). i don’t think english, as a language, excels at expressing concepts in the concise way i desire.

i think the vast majority of my choice of words and use of language comes down to the fact that: while i am very well-read and have an extensive vocabulary, use of more illustrative words in english doesn’t improve the effectiveness or accuracy of communication.

the wordy-ness aspect is something that i fight with; because i know that as the word count of what i’m trying to express increases, so do the chances that the other party will not understand me correctly.

it’s frustrating how little value each word has individually, but having more makes what is being said more vague.
