The Ingredients of Language First edition, 1999. Hardback. xi, 348pp. Dustjacket. How does language work? How do children learn their mother tomgue? Why do languages change over time? Why do languages have so many quirks and irregularities? Are they all fundamentally alike? How are new words created? Where in the brain does language reside? Steven Pinker seeks to answer these and many other questions. Here is an eye-opening nd utterly original book by a leading cognitive scientist. Book in very good condition. Just the slightest bumping to corners. Internally clean and unmarked. Dust jacket very good. Unclipped. Very slight edge wear.
