Great job incorporating complexity theory into the concepts in the book. I enjoyed reading it and use it as reference often.

This is an outstanding work for anyone into how the brain works and how we learn.

For years I have questioned the theories of Chomsky and innatists in general, mainly because the examples they provided never made sense to me and didn't seemed steeped in what we can observe in actual speakers. This book clearly outlines why people speak, and why language cannot be innate. Basically, from the moment we are born humans have a drive to communicate with others due to an extremely complex reward system which is activated during nursing and mother/infant bonding. Because of the release of opiates during interactions, infants are "rewarded" by communicating with caregivers, due to the morphine-like effects of these opiates. Therefore, as infants we are driven to communicate in order to continue receiving these rewards. The structure of language develops not due to innate structures, but due to interacting factors explicable by viewing language as a complex adaptive system, similar to ant colonies, weather patterns, and traffic jams. In a complex adaptive system, a structure emerges through chaos. We have historical evidence of this happening in language though pidgins becoming creoles, and through the grammaticalization process that occurs in historical language change. There is a lot more to this book than what I have mentioned, and it is an essential read for those interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of language.
