    In The Stuff of Thought, Steven Pinker marries two of the subjects he knows best: language and human nature. The result is a fascinating look at how our words explain our nature. What does swearing reveal about our emotions? Why does innuendo disclose something about relationships? Pinker reveals how our use of prepositions and tenses taps into peculiarly human concepts of space and time, and how our nouns and verbs speak to our notions of matter.

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    As a former teacher of English (as a foreign language - TEFL), I found this book excellent. English is my second language and for a long time I have been facinated by the "behavior" of verbs, be in English or my own native language. It will help TEFL teachers explaining why certain words behave in a particular way. I think this ought to be a required reading for all who intend to teach English as a second/foreign language. The reader is also outstanding.
