. The school psychologist and AP Psychology teacher in my highschool told us once about an experiment he did in college with hypnosis and age-regression. He was talking to someone who him and his partner had hypnotized, and when they got to around the age of 3, the guy started blabbering fluently in Spanish. When they brought him out of it and asked him, he told them that his first language was Spanish, but that he doesn't remember it that well anymore since he's been speaking English constantly since then. -Stephen (Steg) ...who started Semantics in his linguistics class today ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.
