Summary "Get the Summary of John McWhorter's The Story of Human Language in 20 minutes. Please note: This is a summary & not the original book.Original book introduction: Language defines us as a species, placing humans head and shoulders above even the most proficient animal communicators. But it also beguiles us with its endless mysteries, allowing us to ponder why different languages emerged, why there isn't simply a single language, how languages change over time and whether that's good or bad, and how languages die out and become extinct. Now you can explore all of these questions and more in an in-depth series of 36 lectures from one of America's leading linguists."-- Provided by Freading.
