STEVEN PINKER about his book “The Stuff of Thought”

For all of you who are interested in languages, don´t miss this video for anything in the world. It´s a little long (more than an hour), but it definitely worth it.

It gives an insight of what language reveals about human nature. It includes a brief yet clear explanation about nouns, verbs and all that geeky grammar stuff I love, a hilarious dissertation about cursing and some social aspects implied in a language
