The Language Instinct
How the Mind Creates Language
For the June’s bookclub we will discuss about “https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5755.The_Language_Instinct”. It 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.
Does it contain all the answers you are looking for? Come and share your impressions with us.
Because of the short time between May’s and June’s bookclubs and the length of “The Language Instinct”, we extraordinarily encourage everyone to join, regardless whether they have read the book or not. Although registration is not required, we strongly encourage you to let us know if you will attend (please contact mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org or mailto:email@example.com), so we can calculate better the snacks and drinks.
