After I asked a question on Psychology and Neuroscience SE, some confusion arose over my use of the phrase 'to teach a disorder'
I was told that 'to teach a disorder' is a poor choice of words when trying to convey that ...
I am not asking whether people can be taught but whether the disorder itself can be taught to people previously not suffering from the disorder or exacerbated in those already suffering.
Since a disagreement arose, I was deferred to this website to ask whether it is appropriate or not.
Here are the various definitions of the entry teach in Lexico powered by Oxford I hope through the context to make it clear that I mean the definition:
2 [with object and clause] Cause (someone) to learn something by example or experience.
What is wrong with 'teaching children a disorder' ? I.e., why isn't it proper English and/or understandable?
