Check out this neat Radiolab episode about language, Words. It covers some of the nice and quirky things about language that you might forget while you’re, say, diagramming sentence trees. Featuring two of Columbia University’s own, including Ann Senghas.

Any thoughts on the opening and ending story, of the deaf man who learns language at age 27? I’m a little skeptical.

And check out the video associated with the episode:
