And this is why English is a fucked up language…
Why, exactly? I don’t think I understand what you’re referring to.
Haha, I definitely think I know why Estifi said that he doesn’t think he understands what you’re referring to.
Let me explain. In English we start with one sentence like the first, but then we can extend that sentence and it will still make sense in a linguistic point of view. We can even change it into a question and we’ll still get it. I suppose this happens in other languages as well but after studying the English language properly and being an English speaker myself, I now understand how difficult it is to learn.
My respect to anyone who speaks English as a second language.
The property of recursion is not English-specific; it’s a ubiquitous property found in all natural languages.
