Book: The language instinct

Author: Steven Pinker

Details: (c) Steven Pinker 1994; Pub Penguin Books 1995; ISBN 0-14-017529-6

Verdict: The language instinct is justifiably a classic of popular science writing.

Reasons for reading it: It was somewhat ridiculous that I hadn't read this, since it discusses biology and linguistics together and since I've read so much that refers to it.

How it came into my hands: pseudomonas lent it to me.
