archaic convoluted

I really think you need to start reading something easier. This sort of convoluted archaic language is difficult for a native speaker to figure out, let alone a learner at your level


Could anyone replace the above paragraph with Lucid English Language?

Especially what is `let alone a learner at your level'?

    "...much less a learner at your level"
    or if that is not lucid enough,
    "...and is certainly not for a learner at your level"

    ... paragraph with Lucid English Language?

    Lucid seems to be today's popular word :)
    Neither lucid nor language need capital letters in the above sentence.

    difficult cuss has explained the text you queried.
    Apart from perhaps explaining the more unusual words in the rest of the text, it is difficult to know how to respond. It would help if you explained what you think it means, or provided your own "translation" into lucid English, then we could comment and if necessary correct.
