Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London - first UK edition ISBN:0297816470, 1999. hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Six word inscription to ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Steven Pinker's new book explains the profound mysteries of language by picking a deceptively simple single phenomenon and examining it from every angle. The phenomenon - the existence of regular and irregular verbs - connects an astonishing array of topics in the sciences and humanities: the history of languages; the theories of Noam Chomsky and his critics; the attempts to duplicate human language using computer simulations of neural networks; the illuminating errors of children as they begin to speak, and imaging the living brain. A sparkling, eye-opening, original book.
