comment Why did families in 6th century Mecca send their babies to be raised in the desert?
Yes, I know that children learns the basics of a language when they're toddler, I'm a parent. By "basic", it means they learn how to put simple sentence, and use basic words like "yes", "no", "mama", "cat", "sheep", "eat", "pee", "poop" and stuff like that, and I think one's parent is sufficient for tat. It's not like they're learning making speeches, poetry and literature, which might require a special tutor..

If language skill is the main objective, toddler age is not the most effective age to teach childen the finer aspects of language.

+1. Thanks for explaining my mistaken assumption that cities are better, I thought deserts have less water, shelter, and harsher climate. I guess pre-modern urban concentration had worse effect than those things. Is it possible for your answer to expand on that (on why cities are such a bad place for infant mortality)?
