The name is Göran Andersson, and I work as a programmer, mostly building ASP.NET applications with SQL Server as database.

As English is not my first language, I hope to be able to provide an outsiders view to some questions.

comment A person who cannot understand that there may be other perspectives
Realising that there are different perspectives is a part of our mental development. Small children are actually not aware that there exist more than one perspective. For example, shown a box for cookies the child believes that it contains cookies, until shown that it contains pens instead. After that the child believes that it always thought that the box did contain pens, not even aware of having changed perspective, or that someone believing that it contains cookies could be possible.

comment Why do we say “your letters” and not “the letters”?
@FumbleFingers: That's maybe what you intended to do, but you didn't.

@FumbleFingers: What are you arguing about really? I'm not trying to "provide my own definition", I don't understand where you get that from. Please stop trying to tell me what I am trying to do, when you obviosuly have no idea.

@FumbleFingers: It isnt a matter of how contrived the context would, be but that you need to supply a specific context for the example to have a different meaning.

@FumbleFingers: Naturally the example could take a different meaning in a specific context, but that goes for any example, including yours.

comment How to pronounce “gemænscipe”?
I don't know the relevance, but it looks like another loan from old norse, which is now in swedish gemenskap and pronounced jɛˈmeːn.skɑːp.

comment How to use “I love you”?
@Mari-LouA: The OP asked about two uses of the same term. In that context ti amo corresponds exactly to I'm in love with you. A literal translation of the term is irrelevant, as the uses overlap in different ways in the two languages.
