Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is it about the human mind that accounts for the fact that we can speak and understand a language? Why can’t other creatures do the same? And what does this tell us about the rest of human abilities? Recent dramatic discoveries in linguistics and psychology provide intriguing answers to these age-old mysteries.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 223-239) and index.
