Perhaps I am a lazy reader. English language books which contain lots of unpronounceable foreign or dialect words, phrases, names, or entire blocks of narrative or conversation frustrate me. Part of me wants to attribute that to a sort of snobbish elitism on the part of the author, even if said author is a well-respected scholar in the field. My unconcious keeps muttering "show-off" as I trudge on reading. Just write the damned historical treatise and get on with the mystery! Oh, yes you're correct - wouldn't make as much money that way.
