I love analyzing my native language, American English, and helping non-native speakers make sense of it. I've been doing this for fun with friends who speak English as a second language for nearly 30 years. I would like to first thank A.D., C.F. and E.A., and now P.G., for inspiring me to finally write this stuff down!

Hard to read
If someone is 'hard to read,' it means that is hard to anticipate what they are thinking or feeling.
-Do you think your mother-in-law liked your gift?
-I don't know. She's really hard to read.
