Who has made that claim, and where? You appear to be attacking a straw
Rather, I've claimed that the conventional lime length limit is *based
in* the real cognitive limits of human reading comprehension — and that
technologies have been designed with corresponding limitations.
Nowhere have I claimed 79 or 80 are somehow fundamental or encoded in
human cognition, and I have seen no-one else claim that. Please try to
work within your own cognitive limits and read what people write for
