For a few reasons I doubt it including that natural language is very imprecise.
Another reason though might be more obscure. I write about how humans can adapt genetically and strategically to the future as our ecology undergoes a radical change from tribal ecology to Civilization. On chapter is about what a person needs to know which includes certain things like Critical Thinking skills so a person can discern truth, science including biology because it describes humans, law because it describes the human environment, etc. I do recommend that a person know a foreign language because it teaches them about their own language. I also recommend that a person learn a programming language. Not necessarily for use on a job, but so they know how machines communicate and think. If we develop machines that can communicate with us in our natural language, we are going to naturally make mistakes communicating with machines and about distinguishing what machines are. We do need to keep that in mind.
