I'm honestly starting to wonder if the lanugage/age connection is largely a myth. Do you know of any research that supports that conclusion? I've gotten to thinking that the real problem is that it's pretty much impossible to recreate the conditions under which a native language is learned...
well, for one thing, adults tend to be more busy since they most likely have to provide for the family...as opposed to children. they go to school. for the purpose of learning. they have more chance of living through the culture that the adults may miss out on. even simple stuff like the nursery rhymes and stuff.
It was an HS neurology text.
