Post Article: The Interpreter
Here's a great article that talks about a man who spent time with a tribe in Brazil. A lot of the information has to do with problems within Chomsky's UG (universal grammar) theory.

It's not over the top with language terminolgy and the like. A pretty easy read but really has some interesting things to say about language. Some fresh, old ideas.

Very interesting. Thanks for the heads up. (<---- just gave myself an idea for another idiomatic expression class)
