Talk the Talk: Language and the Pirahã

Doing the podcast is my dream job. Not only do I get to talk about language every week, but I also get to talk about language with some of my linguistic idols. Dr Daniel Everett is definitely on the list. I’ve talked about his work with the Pirahã people of the Amazon many times in my classes, but here I got to ask him about what it all means.

Now everyone on my interview list can move up one. What linguistic types should I go after next?

  1. Wow, that episode 2 is fascinating!! New evidence that calls into question so many things I've always heard about humans and language!

    Are you sure the link is right for episode 1, though?
