Yeah, I think her touching the ink shows us that the communication and understanding the language is a lot more subconscious than we might think.
I also think the bigger message of the story is about life itself. We ALREADY KNOW our lives and those around us will all lead to death. Yet we continue. We create children that (hopefully) live on after us. We understand time in a different way. Yes we are tethered to it, but it also gives everything a meaning and value.
