about my writings and videos — errors and vocabulary.

i do notice many grammatical errors in my writings, after reading them again, but if the errors aren’t changing the meaning i intended to convey then in most cases i leave the errors unedited.. because i have more important things to do. as a writer i have spent on some of my books so much time in seeking out errors, reading the books over and over and over again, that if i count whole the spent time on editing out the errors then i could have used that time in getting deeper understanding in one entire field of science. so, this is my excuse. i am not a native speaker of english — i began learning it properly only in exile, after leaving my country some 20 years ago. thus, my vocabulary is a bit limited too. it is especially clear while watching my videos — i don’t have time to edit videos, so i shoot them as is, in one cut and from first time, and that creates a pressure to find the right words fast.. and thus the many general substitution words instead of precise vocabulary. to recall a precise word for something i may need more than few seconds, which on video would be a too long silence. actually i write more fluently, not faster – just more easily, because i’m not under the pressure to get it all right from the first attempt, and if necessary i can pause to find the right word from dictionary, or to verify a word to make sure it is exactly what i mean, not ambiguous in the context. during video recording, if i realize that the exact meaning of a word needs to be verified, even if i seem to be knowing the word well, i prefer to use a general substitution word, where possible.. if not, then i explain the same thing over in other words, or clarify the subject in different ways. i do correct my writings sometimes, the next day usually, if i feel that a sentence may be confusing, to make the precise point, to convey my way of thinking more clearly. thus, if you’re a subscriber and have received an email, then it will be a good idea to visit my blog and read the latest version of an article. small irrelevant mistakes of grammar won’t grant my time to log into my blog, to wait the blog to download on my slow android device and disappearing internet connection, to edit, save etc. — each correction may take 5 to 10 minutes. (when working online my tablet also keeps freezing and crashing, several times a day, like under attack by hackers. this could make an editing of a single symbol in the blog more like a half an hour mission. knowing that i always work on several devices at time, and the restarting period of a crashed device i use for working on other devices, continuing to listen a lecture for example. this makes the 5-10 minute loss on editing a fair estimate). now you understand why i leave so many errors in. i do notice them.. but i came to compromise that i rather learn new things than spend this time on insignificant corrections on my blog.

an opinion / observation ..

(my video)

the sound on the video may seem too bad, but actually it was a heavy thunderstorm outside and the microphone did pretty good job by filtering out most of the noises. i shot this video just as a test to see how the microphone performs, using the oppotunity of the noisy storm.. and then i decided to post the video. it is not the best microphone though, but it’s ok for my needs.. and the camera as well is average, far not the best… what i could afford.

a note: if you see subtitles on the video then these are automatic by youtube — i have not written any subtitles. many words written by a robot are completely wrong, not those words which i was saying.. so, better switch off subtitles and listen to what i am saying.
