Thinking in English: Am I talking to you?

Posted by paa.kwesi on Tue, 05/01/2007 - 22:32

Whenever I do write a public article like this, the struggle is to try to speak correctly to the audience. The fact that the language is English does not really help, because it suggests that the audience is the English-speaking community, while in reality it is mostly unwise to define your audience too broadly. You end up speaking to everyone in general but no-one in particular.
