265: Universal Grammar 2 (featuring Dan Everett and Lynne Murphy) [128kbps]
 
The biggest idea in linguistics is back on the table.

Is there such a thing as the Universal Grammar? Do you have to have a human brain to learn language, or is learning a language just like learning anything else? And are one man's insights into Amazonian languages sufficient to demolish this theoretical edifice?

Linguists Dan Everett and Lynne Murphy talk to DanielBen, and Kylie on this episode of Talk the Talk.
