The Language Instinct: How the Mind Creates Language

Brand: Harper Perennial Modern Classics   |   Status: Hết hàng

"Fascinating insight into how languages work from a man who has studied language all his life. Intriguing premise that language is instinctive in humans, fundamentally different from animal communications and as unique to us as an elephant's trunk is to the elephant. The text gets a bit bogged down in places with repetitive examples, a bit too much detail even for me! But it helps illustrate the points which are all based on research from multiple languages around the globe." - Amazon Reviewer

The classic book on the development of human language by the world’s leading expert on language and the mind.

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 and the Public Interest Award from the Linguistics Society of America. This edition includes an update on advances in the science of language since The Language Instinct was first published.
