“Maybe after a million words.” That’s a quote from Anne Sullivan in the movie, The Miracle Worker. The movie is about Helen Keller and the governess, Anne Sullivan, who helped Helen learn to communicate through sign language. In the scene Anne Sullivan is explaining to Helen’s mother that signing is like “baby gibberish” and that children do not understand language in the beginning but somehow learn it if they hear it often enough. Anne Sullivan predicted that Helen would be able to communicate, “…. maybe after a million words.”
