Book Description:

What does it mean to know a language? Is there a language gene? What do we lose when a language dies? Picking up where his previous book Language, Bananas and Bonobos left off, Neil Smith explores these questions and more in a collection of essays that will intrigue the linguist on holiday or the language lover in all of us. With topics ranging from sign language to the mispronunciations of two-year-olds, Language, Frogs and Savants offers a further glimpse into the fascinating world of linguistics.
