Book Information


Title: The Articulate Mammal
Written By: Jean Aitchison

This highly successful text has been substantially revised to take account of the considerable changes in Chomsky's recent ideas. The chapters on grammatical innateness, child language acquisition, and speech comprehension have been largely rewritten and new material and references throughout the book make it completely up-to-date with key developments in the field.
