Do combinations of words of Germanic origin with words of Latin origin have any influence on the level or register of language?
I can think of examples like:
exquisite work, unwavering resolution, sophisticated mind
While I lived in an English speaking country, I was receiving constant compliments for the quality of my English because I was using words of Romance origin. I did that just because my mother tongue is a Romance language, not because of any particular gift. So it made me think.
