Summary
Building a bridge between 'innatists' and 'social interactionists,' a researcher contends that the capacity for language is wired into our brains by evolution and examines the relationship between words and thoughts, the proliferation of language, and the 'language mavens.' Reprint. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

In this classic study, the world's leading expert on language and the mind lucidly explains everything you always wanted to know about languages: how it works, how children learn it, how it changes, how the brain computes it, and how it envolved.  With wit, erudition, and deft use it everyday 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 like web spinning in spiders or sonar bats.  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.
