Title: Language and Thought
Written By: Amorey Gethin
URL: http://www.intellectbooks.com
Description:

Argues that modern linguistics gives a false picture of both the nature of language and of humans going on to expose elementary but basic flaws in the account of language and thought in Steven Pinker's 'The Language Instinct', as language is shown here to be more of an "artificial device" than a biologically inherited asset.
