Good news for Noam Chomsky. Scientists in England claim to have isolated a gene directly related to language.
This sounds like the universal grammar that Chomsky proposed. Steven Pinker is calling the new findings "a smoking gun".
Steven Pinker is the author of a most wonderful, amusing, entertaining book called The Language Instinct.
I see Amazon have got it right it again: they’re offering a special deal on The Language Instinct. You can get a Richard Dawkins book (The Extended Phenotype) at a discount.
