Description - Learnability and Cognition by Steven Pinker
In tackling a learning paradox - how children acquire argument structure - the author synthesizes literature in the fields of linguistics and psycholinguistics, and outlines explicit theories of the mental representation, the learning and development of verb meaning and syntax. He describes a new theory that has some surprising implications for the relation between language and thought.
