The Birth of a Word by Deb Roy may very well be my new favorite TED Talks. You can read more about Deb Roy here.
Patricia Kuhl gives a TED Talk entitled The Linguistic Genius of Babies. She describes some interesting findings about language acquisition. The video can be accessed here, and you can read more about Patricia Kuhl and her work.
In addition to TED Talks, RSA animate continues to captivate me. Here’s an RSA animate with Steven Pinker entitled Language as a Window into Human Nature.
If you were interested in these videos, you may also be interested in past posts made about TED Talks and RSA Animate. Happy viewing!
