language and mind

Home

My gravatarNoam Chomsky wrote a book, Language and Mind. Obviously, the website is not intended to steal the show: however    I do not always agree with Noam Chomsky, he made a book title to be a natural association; human minds have much to do with language.

Feel welcome to browse my posts and the books. My grammar books are here.

A NEW PEOPLE COME

NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, says the Great Seal. Could it really be just an echo of Virgil or a secular expansionist foreboding?

NO MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, OR HOUSES WITH THE PIE

Vir or andros, child or rebionok, woman or kobieta ― the words do not have  common Proto-Indo-European roots.

THE APOSTASY OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT?

“Governments of Tongues” would condemn the First Amendment.             The ideas yet cannot take Wycliffe’s myrrh.

THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER

Language is a valor. This valor yet has to be learned.

 

The Prince And The Pauper (Unabridged And Illustrated)

MAGIC MIRROR ON THE WALL

To blame age is nature. Not to blame the woman is the upper story.

 BRITISH GRAMMAR NAZIS

The attached — and colored meaningfully yellow — graphic piffle is not intended to mean the Union Jack proper.

 HOW TO GRIND EFFECTIVE

Inborn skills, gifts, and talents may become mediocre myths with exams.

TONGUE ENTANGLEMENT, PART ONE

Saying ‘come in’  can be just best to get someone into a room, especially wholesome. ;)

  1. Hi and thanks for the comment. You have some thought-provoking views. Language often baffles me. Where on earth did it come from, and who makes the rules?

    • I am an evolutionist with the regard; even if the UFO would come one day (Brits reported sightings, but that’s their MOD ;) or God would thunder from the above (no reports so far on the matter), I’d think language comes from humans: language lives with humans. The fact that there is a dimension to human intellect has been interesting to me.

  2. Impressive range of interesting materials that deserve serious consideration. I’ll comment more later after I’ve checked out some of these essays in greater depth.
