Before Steven Pinker wrote bestsellers on language and human nature, he wrote several technical monographs on language acquisition that have become classics in cognitive science. The phenomena and ideas he explored in this early book inspired his 2007 bestseller The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature. This BIT offers Pinker's look back at his early work and two pivotal chapters from Learnability and Cognition.
