We've all read about feral children being raised by animals or being raised by abusive parents who were unwilling to free them in society. But has there ever been a case of two or more children growing up together without any parent to raise them?
I'm curious to learn about this case. Because if there's been a real situation like this, I guess a new culture and most likely a new language might've been invented by these children.

Heavily criticised as being NOT in the interests of the deaf of Niacaragua ( they cd have used Spanish SL) but to provide fodder for papers and publications of the authors. This consideration should not have entered the equation at all
Genie? Are you looking for young children that survived entirely alone, in society?
I've just by accident stumbled on the story of Genie, who I'd never heard of. Have only read some of the article so far, but absolutely heart breaking. Tossed from pillar to post and never having the protection she deserved.
