Is there anyone who has read or would like to read "The Language Instinct" by Steven Pinker? (re:the theory that language is an instinct, innate as walking, etc.) I am reading it now and would like to start discussions/group study on it. also anyone familiar with Noam Chomsky's work very welcome to participate as well as those familiar with (or wishing to study) the opposing views of "linguistic determinism/linguistic relativity" (Edward Sapir and Benjamin Lee Whorf being the notable proponents of this view).
Happy Studying!
