I don't find this at all. I speak both English and Greek fluently, and
find that the people speaking it makes much more difference than the
language. When my Greek relatives speak to me in English, they still
speak from a Greek cultural perspective.
You seem to be arguing a cultural relativist position, which I think
frankly is nonsense, even if it sometimes is popular in "critical
theory" academic circles.
