A New Read on Linguistic Issues Posted by on Jun 3, 2009 in Esperanto Language

A co-worker recently passed on this link in an email. It’s a review of a fascinating new book about languages, called “Origins of the Specious.” The Darwin pun alone makes me want to read it!

While the book, from what I can discern, does not focus on Esperanto, it addresses some of the peculiar idiosyncrasies of grammar and language that prompted the invention of our favorite second language. I plan to take a look at it in the near future, and will comment further upon it then. For now, you might want to investigate the book yourself.
