Learning to read comes at a cost
from Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics via Science Daily
Learning how to read may have some disadvantages for learning grammar. Children who cannot read yet often treat multiword phrases as wholes ("how-are-you"). After learning to read, children notice individual words more, as these are separated by spaces in written language ("how are you").
