I have been dilatory in keeping up with this blog but I have been reading several books which are very impressive. Above all, I have just finished a book which was what my friends and I started looking for ten years ago. We wanted to catch up with what has been happening in linguistics since we were professionally engaged with the subject. It is:
Daniel Everett: How Language Began.
To summarise it is a formidable task and I will embark on it soon. It has been worth waiting for!
