Message 1: Cognitive Linguistics: How the Brain Evolved Language

Subject: Cognitive Linguistics: How the Brain Evolved Language

How the Brain Evolved Language

Loritz here addresses fundamental questions about language,
cognition, and the human brain. He traces how certain features of
the brain evolved to perform communication functions, then
shows how those features developed into designs for human
language. Loritz's unified explanation of language in the brain
contradicts directly the theory of innateness proposed by, among
others, Chomsky and Pinker.
