u missed the point. he may know what it is...
Ill give u an example:
I had a friend of mine who was a great programmer and he learned it by himself. He mastered all the basic structures, bla bla bla but he didnt knew some of their names. For example, instead of knowing what an 'array' is, he knew what a 'vector' is. So, if you ask a guy to perform some kind of operation on an 'array', he wouldnt know for a start what an array is, as he knows it as a 'vector'.

Remember that English is not the first language for most of the world, so sometimes people dont get the ideia cause they dont understand the basic mean of the word. For example, it took me a while to realize what the name 'thread' meant (it has no relevant translation to my native tongue), although i perfectly knew how to use it. If it was called 'dog', it wouldnt make a difference to me, as i knew what it was for, and, because of my poor english, i would'nt try to associate it with a meaning right away.
