    In this classic, the world’s expert on language and mind lucidly explains everything you always wanted to know about language: how it works, how children learn it, how it changes, how the brain computes it, and how it evolved. With deft use of examples of humor and wordplay, Steven Pinker weaves our vast knowledge of language into a compelling story: language is a human instinct, wired into our brains by evolution. The Language Instinct received the William James Book Prize from the American Psychological Association....

    Would you try another book from Steven Pinker and/or Arthur Morey?

    Chapter 1 got me hooked, and the subject is very related to my research. However the book is redundant if you have any idea about Naom Chomsky's work. My take on the book is that most of the research it talks about is not well designed and fails to accept the fact that computers are available.


    Has The Language Instinct turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arthur Morey?

    I would have just referred listeners to accompanying material instead of reading long lists of words or examples that are included in many parts of the book.
