Hello,

I've just replied to one email and wrote this "These are the fields I find of high interest myself." I was referring to some fields in linguistics I mentioned earlier in the email.

Does this phrase makes sense? I know I could also say 'I am really interested in these fields' or something similar but is it ok if I already wrote it the way I did? I'm not a native engl. speaker hence I haven't got the right feel for it and god knows why I'm now thinking of 'high interests' in banks..

Thank you.

It's ok.

Here is another way:
"These are the fields I find highly interesting."

Or, this expresses the idea that these areas of interest are mutual.
"These are the fields I myself find highly interesting."

Now's a fine time to ask. Why didn't you ask before you wrote it? Emotion: sad

Fortunately, your sentence is OK. A bit awkward maybe, but not a disaster. The simpler "I'm really interested ..." would have done just as well. To my ear "I find of high interest" is a little literary for an email.

Uff, thanks a lot. Yes, I was thinking "These are the fields I find highly interesting." would sound much better right after I replied. I guess I just wanted to sound intellectual or smth

I was a bit in a rush, plus it looked all fine to me at first glance. Then later on when I got back home, read it again and couldn't find the 'phrase' anywhere on google that's when I started getting worried that I just wrote a nonsensical bs.. to a department of applied ling. at a prestigious uni. My fault, I know. Didn't have anyone else to ask anyway and just found out bout this site yesterday.

As for the silly mistake I made "Anonymous: I ... wrote this "These are the fields I find of high interest myself." ... Does this phrase makes make sense?" Sorry Emotion: smile At least I got it right in the subject of my question.

Thanks a bunch for responding to my question so quickly.

Cheers, Jiri

I'm writing an essay letter for American History and I wrote the phrase " If you choose to invade Japan not only will the war prolong..." Does this make sense?
