Does movie "Savage talk" actually have any foundation in reality?

Asked by 6rant6 (13629 points ) July 24th, 2012

Watching an old movie.

The Apache keep referring to people by their names rather than saying “you”. I realized that in movie savage speak, people often refer to themselves by their own names rather than, “I.”

Is this phobia of pronouns actually occur when someone first learns a language? Or is this a literary tradition handed down the last 130 years?
