    Deific!

    Hello, again,

    when someone says "your language is bordering on deific", what does it mean exactly?
    I thought "deific" means something related to god, but maybe there is another meaning?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above. Where did you see/hear that sentence?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
