Subject: Media: Anderson article in NYT 09/07/04


Stephen Anderson of Yale University is featured in an article in the
New York Times "Science Times" on Tuesday Sept 7 (p. D3), about his
new book "Doctor Doolittle's Delusion", which debunks stories about
animal language on the grounds that (surprise!) animals are innocent
of Original Syntax.

The article is available free (one must register) today at
http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/07/science/07cont.html

Later it will cost money to read.
