Everett said. Language learning in the past thirty years, Everett has been working in Brazil and the Amazon region Pilaha, and study their language learning. In his work, the language is rarely documented. Pihala language is a language isolate called, is one of the last surviving. This is because some of the unusual characteristics of language and famous, such as lack of numerals and the "left" and "right" relative direction words. These characteristics are summed up in the years of work Everett. As their language, Pihala people life and isolation, would only say this kind of language. Therefore, although Everett does not speak Portuguese (the official language of Brazil), there is no problem. He put forward relevant and Pihala language problems, and not through the third languages both will say the assistance, but through the investigation of monolingual way. Everett pointed out that if an object you pointing to the side, such as a stick, and asked the name of it (even in English, this action will do) will usually be understood as "ask the name of the object". After understanding the names of objects, linguists will be able to further understanding of the various action names, and how to describe the relationship between different bodies.
