    Language defines us as a species, placing humans head and shoulders above even the most proficient animal communicators. But it also beguiles us with its endless mysteries, allowing us to ponder why different languages emerged, why there isn't simply a single language, how languages change over time and whether that's good or bad, and how languages die out and become extinct.

    What did you love best about The Story of Human Language?

    Dr. McWhorter covers a fascinating and broad array of languages archaic and modern. He is an excellent and entertaining speaker who humanizes the material and brings it to life, making it accessible to those who know nothing about linguistics. I finished this series feeling as though I know a lot more about what languages in general are all about, and with a deeper respect.
