First Language Gene Found

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.

I just finished reading two other books by Dawkins recently; The Blind Watchmaker and Climbing Mount Improbable. They’re both great books on Darwinian evolution.
