Abstract : The uniformity of human culture and language argue that the form in which knowledge is stored is innate, but most of the content is learned and no person knows all about his world or his own language. Some few properties must be available to almost every human creature, but others are available only in one culture or one art. What is analytic to most adults may be a mere fact to every child. Learning includes the addition of event statements, instantial and general; formation of generalizations; and establishment of new properties. How learning takes place is a psychological problem; linguistics can help solve it by contributing to knowledge about knowledge.
