Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). And honestly, the only problem with Bickerton's work is Noam Chomsky. At the outset of his book, Bickerton incorrectly asserts that Chomsky is the Isaac Newton of linguistics.

The origins of language and its relationship with human behaviour is one of the great questions of linguistics and psychology. In this text, the author attempts to turn current wisdom on its head. His claim is that rather than humans developing a cognitive capability that allowed the invention of language, in fact language itself was the means by which the species experienced devlopment and was empowered to evolve cognition.; With this approach to the evolution of language, the author attempts to explain some of the major questions of language and thought, consciousness and cognition. This should be a useful book for all with an interest in the origins of human language.
