Perhaps my use of English is NOT superior but merely odd and off putting?! After all, since speech has, as its only major purpose, the goal of clearly communicating ideas from one person to another, if my methods get in the way of the clear transmission of my ideas it is MY problem much more than my hearers.
BUT... my own way of speaking makes me feel good, especially when I am able to turn a phrase in a way that is clear, fresh, accurate and concise. At those times the minor detail that my ostensible audience fails to appreciate either the beauty or the clarity of what I've said is not really very important to me. At those times I am speaking more for the JOY of assembling a phrase than for communication.
It is more blessed to ask forgiveness than permission.
