"I asked only because your grammar is sometimes difficult for a native English speaker to follow" -

Better way to structure the above sentence would be - Since , i am a Native English Speaker, At times ,makes it difficult to follow your grammar.


" I'm guessing that some of your word choices are because of a more limited vocabulary. That is making it difficult to communicate clearly."

The Adjective" More" limited is redundant .
"that" is making it difficult - incorrect reference, should use "which" instead of that.
This post was a mistake. For several reasons.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Facepalm
No, that is not a better structure. It is convoluted and simply wrong. If you were taught that structure for English sentences you should sue.

No, it is not redundant. It may perhaps have been extraneous but that is not the same thing. Your English vocabulary appears to be more limited than the average native English speaker and that is what I was comparing it to.

Again, no. Had it been a single sentence I would have used 'which'. As a separate sentence the use of 'which' would have sounded awkward.

The word "that" is referring to "limited vocabulary" regardless of how many sentences were used. Which rule of grammar allows you to do so?

Definition of redundant - no longer needed or useful.
Definition of extraneous - unrelated to the subject being dealt with.
"much Limited vocabulary " here Much is no longer needed since limited itself is sufficient. It is not "extraneous - unrelated to the subject being dealt with. "


"No, that is not a better structure. It is convoluted and simply wrong. If you were taught that structure for English sentences you should sue."

You should consult an actual British English Grammar expert to verify it.

A native English speaker would not use that syntax; at least no native speaker I ever heard would.

Extraneous can also mean "not forming a necessary part of something : not important" and that is the sense in which I used it. I could have left out the word 'more' without significantly changing my meaning.

I am using American English but you are still wrong. The sentence as you phrased it is simply wrong. You certainly do better at English than I would at Hindi but that isn't saying much.

"A native English speaker" = first of , native Americans Were not "ENGLISH". If you say "Native English" you are directly implying "British" The word English describes citizens of ENGLAND , as well as the spoken language.

I can give you a few links on history if that interests you.

No, "native English speaker" means someone for whom English was the first language they learned (another way to say it would be that English is the speaker's mother tongue).

American English and British English have slightly different rules for spelling and punctuation and some differences in the way some words are defined.
