"Deliciously erudite." --William Safire, New York Times Magazine

"A riveting detective story." --Chicago Tribune

Steven Pinker, author of the landmark bestsellers The Language Instinct, How the Mind Works, and The Blank Slate--and one of the world's leading cognitive scientists--offers an eye-opening explanation of how human beings learn and use language in Words and Rules. First published in 2000, Words and Rules remains one of Pinker's most provocative and accessible books, illuminating the fascinating relationship between the brain, the mind, and the how language makes us human.
