Ah, I see. Yeah, I know about how children learn language... it just seems funny that no one tells them what words mean or how grammar works. They just pick it up. And sure, it's easy to pick up words for things like concrete nouns, but it's really interesting how they pick up on words for more abstract concepts. It's like... they have to start from nothing. When someone is trying to learn a new language, you can explain things in terms of her native tongue. But you can't explain language with language to someone who lacks any language at all. Well, most people start off translating things in their heads, but stop as the language becomes more natural to them. It would be really hard to start off thinking like that... impossible, I'd say. It takes time and repetition for new pathways to form in the brain.
