Sid is truly a gentleman, as I've said before. Thanks for being so kind, Sid.
A few years ago I watched a movie called "Lost in Translation" - the main actors are Bill Murray and Scarlett Johannsson. They meet in Japan. Bill Murray plays the role of a guy some 30 years Scarlett's senior.
I don't know if I got the right message but it seemed to me that the main message of that movie is that most times our feelings get lost in the conversations and interactions that we have with other people.
That movie is really slow but it can get really deep.
The reason I bring this up here is because we might have a hard time translating our feelings beyond are national borders.
We can on another occasion discuss about what it really means to have ownership over one's culture, language, heritage, and so forth.
Dale is very kind, very supportive, and he always goes out of his way to encourage us.
Dale is in his own right to have and show ownership over the language.
Language is first of all an intuitive form of communication.
And who could have more natural intuition when it comes to language then a native very experienced in his own mother tongue?
