Hi! Thank you for reading the article.
I see your dilemma, and I believe it’s the one most exophonic writers struggle with.
Your writing seems great. You conveyed your message without misleading or redundant sentences. You were precise and explained the issue.
I believe this is the most important thing for writers— to get your message across. Most readers come for the story, not the text itself.
From time to time it’s great to stumble upon new words and learn ones like ‘obscure.’ But having to open the dictionary every third sentence kills all the joy out of reading.
Most readers on the internet are probably not Native English speakers, but they read none-the-less.
Also, Hemingway is an excellent example of using simple language to convey great literature.
I hope this answer helps.
