Language and Thought
Gethin, Amorey
Paperback, 1-871516-72-2, 128pp, $14.95/$24.95. Intellect Books.

Argues that modern linguistics gives a false picture of both the nature of
language and of humans going on to expose elementary but basic flaws in
the account of language and thought in Steven Pinker's 'The Language
Instinct', as language is shown here to be more of an "artificial device"
than a biologically inherited asset.
