Review

-- Paul Fletcher, Times Higher Education Supplement

" Pinker's book is a monumental study that sets a new standard for work on learnability." -- Ray Jackendoff, Brandeis University

" The author's arguments are never less than impressive, and sometimes irresistible, such is the force and panache with which they are deployed." -- Paul Fletcher, Times Higher Education Supplement

"The author's arguments are never less than impressive, and sometimes irresistible, such is the force and panache with which they are deployed."--Paul Fletcher, Times Higher Education Supplement

"Pinker's book is a monumental study that sets a new standard for work on learnability."--Ray Jackendoff, Brandeis University

""Learnability and Cognition" is theoretically a big advance, beautifully reasoned, and a goldmine of information."--Lila Gleitman

Synopsis

In tackling a learning paradox - how children acquire argument structure - the author synthesizes literature in the fields of linguistics and psycholinguistics, and outlines explicit theories of the mental representation, the learning and development of verb meaning and syntax. He describes a new theory that has some surprising implications for the relation between language and thought.
