Visit the only film series ever made on what language is and how it works by clicking the link below:
By “language” we don’t mean learning French or Japanese, but the extraordinary ability humans have to talk to one another.
The Human Language seeks to explain language by observing how people speak and listen. In three 55-minute films we see and hear the enormous complexity of language which, however, children seem to have no difficulty learning.
Nobody lectures us, but the nature of language itself is revealed by over 50 linguists (including Noam Chomsky), philosophers, Papua New Guinea head hunters, archeologists, writers, publishers, Eskimos, baseball players (including Hank Aaron), actors, comedians (including Sid Caesar and George Carlin), and hosts of “real people,” including a great many children.
