This book presents a state-of-the-art account of what we know and would
like to know about language, mind, and brain. Chapters by leading
researchers in linguistics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition,
cognitive neuroscience, comparative cognitive psychology, and evolutionary
biology are framed by an introduction and conclusion by Noam Chomsky, who
places the biolinguistic enterprise in an historical context and helps
define its agenda for the future.
The questions explored include:
What is our tacit knowledge of language?
What is the faculty of language?
How does it develop in the individual?
How is that knowledge put to use?

all the answers, then a convincing, productive, and lively approach to the
