5.0 out of 5 stars An antidote to Pinker, 10 Dec. 2007

This review is from: The Articulate Mammal: An Introduction to Psycholinguistics (Paperback)
Jean Aitchison is a Reith lecturer and professor of Language at Oxford University. Unsurprisingly therefore this book is both readable and authoritative.

Where Steven Pinker's 'The Language Instinct' is described as 'dazzling' by a reviewer this book is 'engaging' and 'wonderfully informative'. I agree on both counts.

If you want well argued (though well informed) propaganda, read Pinker. If you want a balanced, academically sound (yet readable) account of how all of us come to command the most mind-bogglingly complex communication system ever devised, read this book.
