1) Daniel isn't just into languages, he's a word person. The concept is not the only thing important to him; how the concept is expressed is equally so.

2) He only talks as fast as he does because he's trying to cram in all the relevant details. Daniel's big picture is made up of million smaller ones, and he almost always cares more about those details than about the big picture. (This gets a bit less true as the series progresses, though.)

3) Daniel is fundamentally a deeply lonely person.
