This goes back to the 'should reading be easy' line, I think. I don't want
it to look less daunting.
I live in a part of Edinburgh where it is very likely that, when wandering around the streets, you will be accosted by someone who talks not very much differently from the wall of text above (albeit with a different twang and perhaps slightly less intelligibly). Such an encounter is
daunting and, sometimes, a bit scary.
