But the evidence is for different stages of the Egyptian language. I would never say “native speakers can’t make an error,” but I do see what they’re aiming for: a correction of the centuries-old view that error is everywhere because most people are ignorant.

You’re learning a foreign language because it’s different! Most of these words can be used both in an adjective-like manner to qualify a noun or noun phrase, and by itself as a complete object phrase. Nice, but on the other hand, if your knowledge of the case system is less than perfect, you can have hard time telling if it is Anton who gave the book to Nina or the other way around.

Literacy is almost always based on English rather than ASL. In fact, Goren, Sarty, and Wu (1975) claimed that newborn infants only nine minutes old attend more to a moving schematic (cartoon) face than to moving rearranged faces containing the same features in a different orientation; however, Barrera and Maurer (1981a, b) were unable to observe any evidence of selective attention given to the configuration of the face in children less than two months old.
