The Unfolding of Language

I have an enduring passion for and interest in language, and was thus quite intrigued when I read about Guy Deutscher’s two books, The Unfolding of Language and Through the Language Glass.

As it was written earlier, I read The Unfolding of Language first. In this work, Deutscher details the processes by which languages change over time. I found his account to be well researched, very interesting and most importantly completely in line with my intuition about plausible ways in which elements of languages develop and alter.

A fascinating book, and one that anyone with an interest in linguistics should read.
