DON'T BELIEVE A WORD: The Surprising Truth About Language
If you think you know language, think again. There are languages that change when your mother in law is present; the language you speak could make you more prone to accidents; swear words are produced in a special part of your brain. The author explodes nine widely held myths about language while introducing us to some of the fundamental insights of modern linguistics.
