말하고자 하는 것은 - 미안하지만 저는 한국어의 원어민에서 대답만 수락할 것이다.

제가 말하고자 하는 것은 ... What I wanted to say was. < 물론이죠 영어로와 한국어로 내가 이 문장의 뜻을 이미 이해할 수 있지만, 제가 질문이 있습니다.

말하고자 하는 것은~~~"는, 왜 사용했습니까? <<<< -----------------------

왜 여기서 이게 문법을 사용됩니까?
저는 처음으로 이 문법을 봤습니다.
제게 아주 이상하게 보입니다.
가능하면 영어로 대답해주세요. 감사합니다.

    Could you be more specific? ^^'
    Actually I am still figuring out what you want to know about.

    "제가 말하려고 하는 것은.." can mean "what I am trying to say is..." or "what I am going to say..." not "what I wanted to say was...(=제가 말하려고 했던것은)".

    This style is often found in speeches or presentations to introduce or emphasize a topic.

    We often say "(그러니까) 내(제) 말(씀)은..." in a daily conversation.


    You can say "제가 말하고자 하는 것은-" when you want to repeat/emphasize/encapsulate the point of what you have just said.
    For example, if you diversed in the middle of conversation, you think you didn't deliver the point of what you were talking about, or someone suddenly interfered and changed the subject etc.
    It functions as an introduction of what you want to say.
    And it's rather formal.

    It seems perfectly natural to me. :)
