Linguistic symbols, from phonemes/letters to whole texts can be reified into 'rezzed' (created) three-dimensional objects, thus creating innovative manipulative affordances, impossible in First Life and appealing especially to kinaesthetic learners. For example, phonetic dominoes : words reified as moveable and audio-enhanced blocks which attract or repel each other, according to e-FL-relevant phonetic criteria, such as segmental makeup, syllable number, stress pattern, etc. Unique e-text affordances in SL:

Phonetic dominoes ( view from above ) Arrange the nine coloured cubes domino-style to match sounds at the edges of words. Cubes say their name when left-clicked. Here's the list (in alphabet order): apricot, cereal, cream, ketchup, lettuce, milk, pork chops , spoon, T-bone steak .

Other examples of e-text reification: David Merrill's (MIT) 'siftables' (click to watch on YouTube)
