“The community can teach a child to name colors in various ways. For example, it can show him colored objects, ask him to respond with color words, and commend or correct him when his responses correspond or fail to correspond with the colors of the objects . . . The community cannot, however, follow the same practice in teaching him to describe the states of his own body because it lacks the information it needs to commend or correct him.” (pp. 25-26)
