I'm not very eloquent. I blame it on the fact that I was never around just one language growing up...as such, my speech patterns are perpetually "non standard".
Also..I don't think in language. I think in "associations". When my thinking is going faster than my talking, it can sound as if I can barely use the language at all. Technology, I think, also has something to do with this. I've gone days "talking" to people..but not speaking to them. Facebook, Texts, etc etc...
I seem to "talk in spurts". I'll speak, then trail off (because I'm thinking about something), and then all of a sudden snap back and say like 10 or 15 words all at once, only to trail off again. This is how I talk. Sometimes connecting the spurts with the appropriate connecting words is difficult for me.
Anyway, can you develop eloquence? Or am I doomed to be a stuttering mess until I die?
What would you suggest I do?
