I'm fascinated by people who come to dislike their native language. No child dislikes his own language, so any eventual dislike must be something to which one allows oneself to become acculturated. I wonder if it's part of a more general syndrome of self-loathing that susceptible individuals acquire through exposure to persistent criticism of their native culture.
