    As a non-native speaker, I can definitely see what you mean. Actually, I'm currently having a similar experience reading Mieville's Perdido Street Station. I think what both Mieville and Erikson have going for them is how their choice of words is not only broad/diverse but that it is very evocative. Although I guess the difference between the two is that Erikson is moreso about using phrases and rhetorical devices to that end whereas Mieville has a knack for finding the right (obscure) terms to descibe very specific sentiments.

    mieville was my first take on 'modern fantasy' and i was overwhelmed by the bas-lag trilogy, the ideas of the world, races, characters... erikson makes baslag seem like a shortstory :D
    still, i think mieville is a better wordsmith (as far as i know he's making up a lot of new words that still make sense, and i'm not a native english speaker, and thats kind of amazing), with eriksen there are still lot of things that i probably do not or misunderstand,i guess it isdue to the complexity ofthe timelines and theinsane amount of characters
