Lately, when writing, I have noticed that I seem to use the same words too many times, or having difficulties to find a better word than the first I come up with. But this seems strange because when I speak I actually have a good vocabulary and that makes me wonder if it is possible that the written and spoken vocabularies differ? Is it possible to find a wider range of words when talking but over-simplifying for yourself in writing, making the text seem at a lower level languagewise? And why do I do that? How can it be 'cured'? Has anyone else experienced this? AND dammit, why is it that I find it easier to come up with suitable words in english than in my own language? Now that I have been writing on here for a little while, Im aware of the shortcomings of the swedish language, we dont have as many words for the same things as you do. Does this mean I should switch to english in my writing too? HELP!
