    is this good English

    Dear experts, could you tell if the following is garammatically correct:

    "Metalanguage is a hidden language in which concrete ideas, different from the ones being pronounced through natural language, are encoded. To grasp the deeper meaning of a verbal expression is essential for successful business dealings. If someone is about to lie to you, their intention to do so can be seen in the metalanguage they use."

    snade17,
    This looks good to me. I don't think you need "a" before "natural language".
