not really. If someone says something in a language that I don't understand, my brain is not going to pick out a single word and think of that word. It is going to dismiss the entire thing and not pick up on any particular word.

What if you never saw an elephant but understood English? Would the elephant be the same? What if God was an elephant you never saw?
