No doubt, if you're familiar with the words and their meanings.

I didn't intend to imply it was *meant* to be; but, alas!, so it
is in fact to those without background. Very similarly, those fluent in a
given language usually imagine it utterly easy -- until they try to teach
it to others unfamiliar with it.
Or to take a third case, I could give you a lecture off the top
of my head, effortlessly, on the history and theory of the Germanic
languages and literatures, which (unless you're already knowledgeable or
I pitched it appropriately (knowing how by long practice)) you'd find
bewildering. Otoh, that double parenthesis I just committed probably
won't've bothered you nearly so much as it would have an English major.
In all cases, the adept have learned so much, for so long, that
they disremember the effort it once took (in early childhood, in the case
of a mother tongue).
