True. Learning the language again as an adult after having forgotten it as a child was an interesting experience. It was much more academic than conversational. And so I have a scholarly, almost legalistic, understanding of words and the shades of difference in meaning between them. I was struck by the switch in agency between Ya hochy and Mne hochetsa.
