It explores how the newborns develop language skills and it was an amazing read. (See The Language Instinct.) If this is true, attempts to control the range of human thought through the reform of language would fail, as concepts like "freedom" will reappear in new words if the old vanish. She adds plural ending to words that are already plural: gloveses, shoeses, kidses. AMY COX takes a balanced approach to the 'language instinct' debate. Outside of the lab, though, he was fascinated by a far less tractable question: How does the human brain learn language? She spins in circles and says, “I'm getting busy!!” and laughs when she falls down. Fortunately, there is now enough accessible material about language in general and linguistics in particular for the general readers as to remove any excuse for ignorance. I highly recommend The Language Instinct to anyone who is interested in how our minds process language. In his book The Language Instinct, he describes a language maven as a self-styled expert on the language. This topic was my favourite in the book. Steven Pinker's The Language Instinct makes the case that humans, and so far as we know only humans, have an innate ability to acquire language in the sense we generally understand it. Of course, the debate is far from new (see Tomasello's review of Pinker's The language instinct for instance).
