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

Asked by 6rant6 (13672points) 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?
