" I believe a third grader can be forgiven for thinking the letter, a, might be a pronoun and not recognizing the subtle need for a metalanguage of undefined words when establishing a lexicon, but an adult can be expected to be more astute in selecting important events of a life. "

But what if a person's entire life has been shaped by his inability to understand the meaning behind symbols? I suppose that person would eventually give up trying to make sense of language and instead just concentrate on the logical relationships between the symbols themselves.

It's a sad life, but sometimes neurology doesn't give you a choice.
